Cloud computing has taken the industry by storm. Do you know EXACTLY what it is, and are you ready to part of the next generation workforce? What about cloud's 3 pillars, SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS? What does "serverless" mean? This session begins with a high-level overview of all of cloud, what is it, and why it's here. Next is an introduction to Google Cloud and what its myriad of products are, focusing on serverless solutions.

The hands-on portion focuses on Google Cloud "serverless" solutions you can use with Python, including demos and live-coding (time-permitting). Come join us for this valuable session if you're a developer, business analyst, data scientist, technical manager, IT/admin staff, or hobbyist. If you live-code with us, chances are you'll leave with running code available to anyone around the world!
