Having started my latest professional venture, just two months ago I joined the intellectual folks over at Pythian as a Google Cloud Solutions Architect. Being fully focused on building out and developing their Google Cloud Platform (GCP) practice, I had the opportunity to attend the Google Cloud Next ’17 conference in San Francisco, a couple of weeks ago. After attending the conference, and returning home to catch up on all the work that piled up during that week, I was invited to come on the Datascape Podcast, by its host Chris Presley to discuss my thoughts and reflections on the event.
Enough of my rambling, check out the podcast episode below, and hear my thoughts about the Google Cloud, announcements of new upcoming features, and how I believe it fairs among other public cloud services available today.
Note: I made the error of assuming that Google I/O was no more, and that Google Cloud Next took its place. I was 100% wrong about this, probably because I was so taken with this event that I missed any marketing content promoting Google I/O… sorry Google! 😉
