Introduction to Developer Efficiency with Gemini on Google Cloud

Generative AI is now at the center of transforming how software is designed, built, run, and managed. For developers, generative AI is a powerful tool for making coding more efficient and using APIs, such as the PaLM API, within their applications.
In this course, you are introduced to how generative AI can be used to make developers more efficient at writing code and implementing new features into applications. Along the way, you learn principles of prompt design and how to explore the different models available on Google Cloud by using Vertex AI Model Garden.

Objectives

In this course, participants will learn the following skills:

  • Understand the efficiency challenges in a developer workflow and how generative AI can make developers more efficient.
