Google App Engine

Join Google Cloud Engineer Thomas Munduchira for a hands-on workshop using Google App Engine.

Google App Engine applications are easy to create, easy to maintain, and easy to scale as your traffic and data storage needs change. With App Engine, there are no servers to maintain. You simply upload your application and it's ready to go.

App Engine applications automatically scale based on incoming traffic. load balancing, microservices, authorization, SQL and NoSQL databases, Memcache, traffic splitting, logging, search, versioning, roll out and roll backs, and security scanning are all supported natively and are highly customizable.

App Engine's environments, the Standard environment and the Flexible environment , support a host of programming languages, including Java, Python, PHP, Node.js, Go, etc.. The two environments give users maximum flexibility in how their application behaves since each environment has certain strengths. Read The App Engine Environments for more information.

This workshop uses the sample code from the Google Cloud Node.js Getting Started Guide

You will learn how to:

  • Connect to computing resources hosted on Google Cloud via the web.
  • Use Cloud Shell and the Cloud SDK gcloud command.
  • How to create a Node.js Express application on Google App Engine.
  • How to update the code without taking the server down.

Create Machine Learning models

Prepare for the hackathon season and join Google Customer Engineer Sagar Kewalramani for a hands-on workshop showcasing how to Create ML Models with BigQuery ML.

BigQuery Machine Learning (BQML, product in beta) enables users to create and execute machine learning models in BigQuery using SQL queries. The goal is to democratise machine learning by enabling SQL practitioners to build models using their existing tools and to increase development speed by eliminating the need for data movement. There is a newly available ecommerce dataset that has millions of Google Analytics records for the Google Merchandise Store loaded into BigQuery. In this workshop you will use this data to create a model that predicts whether a visitor will make a transaction.
