Calling for Startup Developers!

Join the Google Cloud for Startups team on Thursday, March 14th, at BLOCK71 Singapore where you will get to hear from Mete Atamel, Senior Developer Advocate at Google, and Jerome Poudevigne, Startup Architect at Google Cloud for Startups.

Learn how you can slash the time for you to get a change into production, and enable zero-downtime deployments with Kubernetes and Istio. You will also be able to learn on what is the efficient approach to a well-managed infrastructure.


  • GC4S x Infrastructure as code
  • Kubernetes & Istio: the efficient approach to well-managed infrastructure

Presentations will be followed by networking & drinks.

We are also giving attendees access to apply* to our Google Cloud for Startups programme, including free Cloud and Firebase credits. 

We hope to see you there!  

*Credits are subject to eligibility


Jerome Poudevigne, Startup Architect, Google Cloud for Startups

Jerome Poudevigne is a Startup Architect at Google Cloud, and helps startups take off on the Google Cloud platform. Originally from France, Jerome got his first computer at the age of 13, when CPUs were 8 bits and 16K of memory was a luxury, and immediately started hacking around, putting together math applications, video games and copy protection schemes. He started as a developer for Airbus, then accidentally moved to the Silicon Valley, got bitten by the startup bug, created 3 companies, sold 2 of them and spectacularly failed another. He has lost track of how many operating systems and programming languages he has used (he just knows COBOL is one of them), but still enjoy passionately debating about the merits of the actor model in embedded software and generally anything IT related.


Mete Atamel, Senior Developer Advocate, Google 

Mete is a Developer Advocate at Google, focused on helping developers with Google Cloud. As a long-time Java and C# developer, he likes to compare the two ecosystems. Prior to Google, he worked at Microsoft, Skype, Adobe, EMC, and Nokia building apps and services on various web, mobile and cloud platforms. Originally from the island of Cyprus, he currently lives in Greenwich of London, not too far away from the prime meridian.
