How to create a new Project in Google Cloud

Projects in Google Cloud help in organising all the Google Cloud Resources. This article provides a quick hands-on guide on how you can create a new Project on Google Cloud.

Introduction

Within the Google Cloud hierarchy, we have Organisation at the root, under which we have Folders, and then Projects at the base of it. Projects contain the Google Cloud services that we use. In a Project one can find the set of users, authentication, billing, set of API’s and monitoring settings for the APIs.

We can create one or more Google Cloud Projects in the same account to organise our resources. In this article, we will take a look at how we can create a new Google Cloud Project.
