    In order to programmatically upload data to a Google Cloud service your program needs to "log in", but your program is not a human being, and so you need to create a service account that allows you to run an authentication process.  As of March 2023 Google uses the OAuth 2.0 authentication framework

     

     

    1. Log into Google using the account you set up for this class and go to the cloud console (console.cloud.google.com/)

    2. Click on the Project dropdown box and choose new project
