Curiosity drive us to wonderful places. That is how I got to found about Free Google Cloud Platform Credit. Actually, Google offers $300 free tier for anyone who has Gmail can get it. This article about how you can get extra Free Google Cloud Platform Credit up to $500. It was just another weekend. I was moving to Gitlab after Microsoft acquisition of GitHub (don’t feel much like to the company who once told Linux is cancer 😉 ). Then I started a repository for a side project. On the start page of the repo, I saw below image.
What took my mind was add a Kubernetes cluster. I had heard this cool container stuff but I didn’t get any chance to try them yet. So I clicked to link 😉 When I clicked it I saw that I was prompted to redeem up to $500 Free Google Cloud Platform Credit (Well Kubernete is a Google cloud Partner, I didn’t know 😀 ).
Interesting 😀 As the world day by day moving to cloud-based solutions I thought getting extra Free Google Cloud Platform Credit would cool thing to know 😉 So I researched about GCP (Google cloud program) credit program. As it seems you can get a different amount of money from different GCP partners.
I found that you can earn GCP credit up to $100,000 if you are Startup. you can apply that through Cloudflare. Cool right? In case you are going to start a startup keep in mind you can always find the link below to apply 😉
