Google I/O 2014 – What’s interesting in the cloud?

google-io-logo 2014-06-24 14.30.42This year there are many interesting sessions on Google Cloud. Here are some that I think you might enjoy watching the live stream (or jump into the room if you are at Moscone center). There are many more great sessions, so the best advice is to check the schedule and plan in advance which one you wish to follow live. You can always catch the other sessions later on channel.

Day 1 (June 25 2014)

  • Taming your cloud applications with intelligent monitoring: This session will show you how you can use Google Cloud Platform’s powerful logging, monitoring, and alerting capabilities to quickly recognize when your applications aren’t behaving or performing well.
  • DevOps at the speed of GoogleThis talk will show you tools and techniques that we provide in our platform for handling complex, global scale operations for extremely high usage services, but which work at your scale no matter how small or large that may be.
