Learn about GCP's newest serverless offering, Cloud Run, and enjoy a fun run! Cool Cloud RUN SWAG to be provided. Event includes FREE hands on Cloud Run Qwiklabs in a Study Jam format.

There is a gap between running simple endpoints in Cloud Functions and full blown services in Google Kubernetes Engine. What if there was a service to fill this gap? There is! GCP's new Cloud Run serverless offering lets you launch a Docker container as a web service wit a single gcloud or console command. We'll learn about Cloud Run and work through Qwiklabs showcasing these features.

This is a SPECIAL EVENT. What makes it special? There will be an optional athletic component, a 3K (2 mile) fun run! Cloud Run and a Fun Run 😄.
