This year at #DevConTLV the main theme was around cloud and databases. In my talk I did my best to emphasis, that in the past 15 years, Google has been building out the world’s fastest, most powerful, highest quality cloud infrastructure on the planet and it is opening it so external developers could enjoy it. There are many services like: App Engine, BigQuery and VMs on Compute engine that all come with the same idea. You (=the developer) should focus on what you good at and not by reinventing the wheel again (and again) by trying to find the secret in memcache optimizations. It’s my 4th year in this event and I can say that it is (without doubt) one of the best developer conferences in Tel Aviv. So if you are around next time, please try to join us. It’s great fun to talk with so many talented developers and the talks that I’ve been to, where very good and informative. Here are the slides: If you wish to dive a little deeper, try the Compute engine demo in the slides. It’s very nice web app that let you start 50 (or 500) instances on Compute engine with a single click and later work with this power to get amazing Fractal Generator. You will need to start your own cloud project before that, but it’s a great way to ‘test the water’. Enjoy.
