Hey Googlers, I’m going in for my GCP TAM second round on Monday and had a few QQs for you all: 1.

1. I had a similar scenario since this is a common use case but the approach will depend on how much time the customer has, I was told to provide an immediate, short term and long term approach. 2. Try to have a 1 pager already prepared and tweak it based on the scenario. Don’t waste time, trust me those 15 mins go by fast.

Thanks G1, agree the timing piece is important but I’d go with the assumption that moving to a micro services architecture could take days or weeks and not months, is that fair? Also for the 1 pager, I have built a pattern with introductions, agenda, services to consider…..anything else you’d recommend I add to speed things up?

Makes sense I was thinking in the context of a basic small business that has scaling requirements as they grow…..the questions make sense and thanks for your help!

One more question, I’m struggling to find a lot of material to prep/practice for a case study, I’ve basically studied the GCP services and looked at 8-10 use cases for cloud migration scenarios…..anything else you recommend doing that might help?

Also, go through the cloud next videos for arch patterns

OP - hope your interview went well! Was it generally like you'd anticipated? Any prep tips you'd like to share?
