Here’s the deck from my talk at #Techorama – enjoy.
Yes, you read this right. Google announced last week at their cloud event, that their IaaS service – Google Compute Engine would begin to offer ‘premium operating systems’ – including Windows. After getting approval from Google to join their limited preview, I tried this functionality out and here’s the results…
I attended a Go Language bootcamp this weekend and wanted to continue my learning by working with Go and the Google Cloud. To that end I made a short screencast of how to setup the Go Language, my preferred Go IDE (Sublime) and a local Google App Engine development environment (as well as how to […]
In this screencast I share some tips, best practices and focus areas to help you move from evaluation to proof-of-concept to production with the Google Cloud. I also ‘tour’ you through my most valuable resources.
In this screencast, I show how to set up your development environment for programming with Java for the Google Cloud. In addition, I review sample code for three services – GAE, GCE and Big Query. Also, I show tools that I use, such as the OAuth 2.0 API Playground, to help me get up and […]
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, […]

I include information about understanding quotas and the free tier that is available for some services, as well as show you a third party pricing calculator […]
Happy New Year! Today I posted my 2nd screencast in my new series ‘Using the Google Cloud for Developers’. Today’s topic is using the Google web consoles to quickly spin up, test out, manage and monitor their cloud services. Demos include working with Google Compute Engine (VMs or IaaS), Google App Engine (managed services or […]
I have updated (and expanded) the screencast series I did this time last year for Pluralsight on ‘Using the Google Cloud for Developers’ to include new services and service updates that Google has released over this past year. I’ll be releasing my updated content on YouTube, Slideshare and Github (so for FREE!). Here is the […]
Here’s a quick look at Google Compute Engine. What’s GCE? It’s Google’s cloud-based VMs (their version of AWS EC2 instances). This service is still in limited preview, but you can request access.
