About this event

As promised we have a special treat for all of you!

Emma Haruka Iwao​ is comming to munich to tell us how she and her team managed to break the record with the help of GCP
She has calculated 31.4 trillion digits of Pi in 2019 and broke the world record in the Pi computation. The process took about four months and 200 TiB of storage. Record-breaking Pi calculations have traditionally been done on supercomputers and special-made hardware, but Emma and her team did it on Cloud for the first time.

This talk will discuss the nature of the calculation, the architecture, challenges and techniques, and of course the brief history of Pi computation. Calculating Pi has been the speaker's childhood dream and this talk will also explain how the small dream grew to the new world record.

- Emma is a Japanese computer scientist and cloud developeradvocate at Google. After joining Google in 2015, Iwao became a Cloud Developer Advocate in 2017. She originallyworked for Google in Tokyo, before moving to Seattle in 2019. Iwao focuses on the use of theGoogle Cloud Platform (GCP), as well as supporting application developers. She works to makecloud computing accessible for everyone, creating online demos and teaching materials.

And I'm also thrilled to announce that Yevgen will go Cloudless with Cloud Run!

Cloud Run offers a ton of benefits for developers and cloud practitioners. In this talk, we will cover life-cycle for your code and get to know the latest updates on serverless compute stack with practical use cases.
