Course completed: GCP Fundamentals: Core Infrastructure

In a previous post, I talked about my intention to learn about Google Cloud Platform, and thanks to Globant, I had the opportunity to enroll in the GCP Partners Learning Program. Today I completed the Google Cloud Platform Fundamentals: Core Infrastructure course, the first one I did on the platform, so I wish to share with you my achievement and also some thoughts about it. It’s a great training system that takes place in Coursera, it’s seamlessly integrated with Qwiklabs, giving an interactive training experience based on video lessons and hands-on labs.

After browsing the web for a while, I found that using Virtualbox to virtualize infrastructure and Vagrant to manage it as code is the easiest and fastest way to provision new lab environments for Chef. The first step to start working is to create a baseline, a minimal workaround built with one server host and two nodes.

Replacing author for multiple Git commits

Some time ago I was taking the course Master Microservices with Spring Boot and Spring Cloud but I had to leave it because these days I was getting very busy. Yesterday, after three months, I returned back and after pushing changes to GitLab repo, I noticed that changes were made with my GitHub email address instead of using the GitLab one.
