Using the Google Cloud for Developers – Part 4 – Command Line Tools

As with using any vendor’s cloud, using not only their web console to manage services, but also their command-line tools, is vital to being productive.  To that end, I made a screencast showing how to set up and to use the command line tools that are part of the Google Cloud SDK, such as gcloud, gcutil, gsutil and more.

Update: Thanks to Manfred (from Google) for getting back to me on a workaround to get the bq tool for BigQuery working.  In a nutshell, they are still working to integrate and also there was a version conflict for the tool on my machine.  To detect the version of each tool use ‘which bq’ and ‘which gcloud’ and compare the (path) outputs.  Manfred further advised me to use ‘bq.py‘ for the current release of the Cloud SDK.  I did that and it worked just fine. See screenshot below:
