Experimenting with GCP Cloud Functions

I’m taking Information Security and Privacy for my graduate program right now, and the topic has diverted this week to containerization and serverless architecture. I’ve decided to document getting a function set up on GCP (Google Cloud Platform) because I haven’t really dabbled with any function-based platforms yet. My knowledge on serverless is pretty much “it’s a function in the cloud” which doesn’t say much, so I’m hoping to grasp a little more what the implementation looks like with this.
