Five Must-watch Google Cloud Next ‘21 Sessions
From data analytics to application development, there are many cloud learning tracks to choose from. Here are five sessions we can’t wait to tune into.
Track: Data Analytics
Speaker: Jonathan Keller, Director of Product Management at Google Cloud
There’s been a lot of buzz around BigQuery, and we’re even more excited about Google Cloud’s data warehousing tool now that it integrates with Looker. This session will cover BigQuery’s newest features, including capabilities for built-in machine learning, log analytics, geospatial, administration, migration, connectors, and scalability.
Track: Application Development
Speaker: Steren Giannini, Product Manager at Google Cloud
Serverless is the future of cloud computing. This session will look at Cloud Run and Cloud Function’s newest features as well as Google Cloud’s other serverless products for enterprise security, workload support, and extensibility.
Track: Application Modernization
Speakers: David McDaniel, Vice President of Cloud Services at Cloudbakers | Qwinix and Andrew Turner, Solutions Architect at Google Cloud
We couldn’t resist including our very own David—or, as we call him, “Mac” —McDaniel in the lineup. This breakout session will explore how companies can leverage edge locations to improve employee productivity and customer experience. Stick around until the end, where Mac will demonstrate how to do this by bringing ML at the edge to a fast-food restaurant scenario!
They’ll also leave time to chat about reference architectures using Anthos.
Track: Google Workspace
Speakers: Aspi Havewala, Executive Director at Verizon and Charles Maxson, Developer Advocate at Google Cloud
Every company is seeing a digital transformation right now. This session will provide a quick overview of Google Apps Script — a powerful, low-code development platform within Google Workspace for customizing advanced workflows — and look at how leaders use it to run their companies.
Speakers: Stephanie Wong, Developer Advocate at Google Cloud
Just in time for Cybersecurity Awareness Month, this session will cut through the core of a data center to look at the six layers of physical security designed to thwart unauthorized access. Those tuning in will also hear about how those layers transcend into Google Cloud’s logical security controls that make Google Cloud one of the most robust enterprise risk management platforms.
