What are build minutes and outbound transfer in App Platform?

Hello, I am new to AppPlatform and I am considering to deploy an application with the service.

However I don’t know what Outbound Transfer and Build minutes are and what they are calculated on? Also what happens if my application exceeds both metrics?
