Using an example cloud application as a framework for exploration, we'll discuss some of the common problems faced by developers when building real-world applications in the cloud. For each problem area, we'll cover techniques and solution patterns for overcoming those challenges using the Google Cloud Platform. Bring some of your own favorite challenges for Q&A time!
I manage Google's Developer Relations team in Seattle. We help software developers get the most out of the Google Cloud Platform, with a particular emphasis on Compute Engine and Cloud Storage. In a previous life, I helped design and build communication systems at Bell Labs and Lucent Technologies. When I'm not working, I enjoy indie music and films, writing, teaching, and chess.
