Google Cloud Initial Project Creation


Google Cloud Platform offers a free tier for many of their products. Additionally they offer a $300 credit on top of that. Its a great way to dip your toes in and try out everything they offer.

To get started though you’ll need to setup a billing account for anything that goes over the free tier, and also setup your first project where you’ll use the various services. In the following short video I’ll walk through the process of setting up and accessing your project for the first time.

We’ll cover

  • Accessing Google Cloud Console
  • Creating a project
  • Creating a billing account
  • Linking your billing account to your project
