About this event

IMPORTANT! This month, we'll be downtown again at Kroger's office in Atrium Two.

Many of you are familiar with G Suite as Google's set of productivity tools comprised of Gmail, Google Drive, Calendar, Docs, Sheets, and Slides. You may also know something about GCP, the Google Cloud Platform, as a collection of online services including virtual machines, data storage, networking, security, and machine learning APIs as well as serverless products. While they appear to be disparate product groups, what you may NOT know is that behind each of the G Suite apps is a developer API, and that both platforms can be used together to build powerful solutions. At the end of the day, it isn't just about the tech, it's about what problems you can solve with it. This session exposes developers to some of the more well-known APIs from both GCP & G Suite as well as highlights several novel solutions that have already been built as sample apps but also serve as inspiration into what's possible. The goal is to show developers the potential of building with ALL of Google Cloud.
