Set Up Network and HTTP Load BalancersGo to Lab
Some of the steps in the "Create a HTTP(s) Load Balancer" section don't work. I double checked all my spelling very carefully. Also using a few deprecated commands in the instructions.
There are problems with this lab. I receive all kinds of error messages when I try and set up load balancers. Also, the content needs to be re-written to me consistent and easy to follow, like with the prior labs in this module. For example, it includes the input Cloud Shell commands with the output results in the same black box, which is confusing. Rule of thumb - always assume the user knows nothing. This lab is important and can be great with some work. Good luck!! :)
The instructions are a little out of date, as some of the gcloud commands ask if you to select a region now. I picked the region we specified in the beginning of the lab (europe-west1). Where it would not let me do that due to errors, I selected global. I was able to complete the lab successfully.
some commands needs a review, there are deprecated arguments and typos.
There is missing clear explanations about what you are doing and even there is some errors over the instructions

some directions did not work
The material was deprecated in some areas and commands
Could show some of the WebUI as well as just creating in cli. Some diagrams on how the different services/rules/forwarders/groups fit together would be good for those not use to networking and L7 load balancers
Bugs in several of the steps prevented completion
