Innovative Computing Group Seminar: Cloud computing and Running code on Google Cloud

Presented by Wesley Chun, Google
10 December 2018 15:30 in E240

Cloud computing has taken over industry by storm, yet there are not enough new college grads who know enough about it. This session begins with a vendor-agnostic, high-level overview of cloud computing, including its three primary service levels. This is followed by an introduction to Google Cloud, its developer platforms, and which products serve at which service levels. Attendees will learn how to run applications on Google Cloud serverless platforms (in Python & JavaScript; other languages are supported) as well as hear about the teaching & research grants available to engineering faculty for use in the classroom or the lab. Whether you're professor, researcher, university IT staff, grad student, or a lecturer, you'll know how to run code on Google's cloud and help enable the next-generation cloud-ready workforce.
