Google Cloud – Professional Cloud DevOps Engineer Certification learning path
Continue on the Google Cloud Journey and I am happy to have received the 8th certification, the Professional Cloud DevOps Engineer certification. Google Cloud – Professional Cloud DevOps Engineer certification exam covers almost all the Google Cloud DevOps tools and Operations Suite concepts.
Google Cloud -Professional Cloud DevOps Engineer Certification Summary
50 questions that needed to be answered in two hours.
This guide covers a broad range of Google Cloud services, mainly focusing on DevOps toolset, Cloud Developer tools, Operations Suite with an emphasis on monitoring and logging, and SRE concepts.
The exam has been updated with Cloud Operations, Cloud Monitoring & logging. It does not mention Stackdriver in any questions.
Artifact Registry rather than Container Registry
There are no case studies available for the exam.
Hands-on is a must for all exams. If you have never worked with GCP before, make sure to do lots of labs. You might be completely clueless about some questions and commands.
I took Coursera and ACloud Guru, which are really extensive, but hands-on or practical experience is essential. Google Cloud – Professional Cloud DevOps Engineering Certification ResourcesGoogle Cloud Exam Guide

Developer Tools
Google Cloud BuildCloud Build can be used to integrate with Cloud Source Repository and Github and can be used for Continuous Integration and Deployments.
Cloud Build can import source code and execute build to the specifications. It can also produce artifacts like Java archives or Docker containers.
Cloud Build can trigger builds from source commits in Cloud Source Repositories and other git repositories.
Cloud Build config file describes the instructions to follow, with steps for each task such as test, build, and deploy.
Cloud Build is a step that specifies the action to be done and is run in a Docker Container.
Cloud Build also supports custom images for the steps
Cloud Build integrates seamlessly with Pub/Sub to publish messages about build’s state changes.
Cloud Pub/Sub notifications can be used to trigger the Spinnaker pipeline via Cloud Build.
Cloud Build should use a service account with a Container Developer role in order to deploy on GKE
Cloud Build uses a directory called /workspace to be a working directory. The assets created by each step can be passed on to the next via persistence of the directory /workspace.
Binary Authorization and Vulnerability ScoringBinary Authorization provides software supply chain security for container-based apps. This allows you to set a policy for when a container image is attempted to be deployed on any of the supported container-based platforms.
Binary Authorization uses attestations in order to verify that an image was created by a specific build system, continuous integration (CI), or pipeline.
Container Analysis can scan images for vulnerabilities to help identify vulnerabilities.
Hint: If the image being deployed must be trusted for security and compliance reasons, use Binary Authorization
Google Source RepositoriesCloud Source Respositories are private, fully-featured Git repositories that are hosted on Google Cloud.
Cloud Source Repositories are available for collaborative, version-controlled and version-controlled development of any app/service
