Do I need to register to join the Speedrun?
Yes, you need to register in order to receive the access code for the Speedrun. Only then your best time will be counted for each Speedrun. With registering you will be provided with all necessary information as well as the access to the webinar that is connected with the Speedrun.
Is this an in-person Event?
The Speedruns and the webinars are all online events, so you can join from wherever you want.
Is this a lecture about Google Cloud?
No, it is not. This is a hands-on event to get you started with a new topic every week using Qwiklabs as a learning platform. The trainers will guide you through the lab(s) for the webinar. After that you can continue the journey for this speedrun on your own.
Is this a Q&A session?
You have the chance to ask questions during the webinar (via the comment function on YouTube Livestream).
Will I get free access to Qwiklab after the event?
Yes, you will, if you finished at least one lab. The event offers a one-month free subscription to Qwiklab which will be shared with you in the beginning of June after all Speedruns finished. If you join more than one Speedrun, you only will be able to access Qwiklabs for one month in total, not for four months. You also need to redeem the Qwiklabs code within a month in order to access the one-month free subscription.
