Talk 2: You build it, Google runs it (serverlessly) in containers by Geshan Manandhar

Focus on your application’s features by running and scaling out containers in a serverless way, managed by Google. Scaling to billions of users is something Google knows very well. You don’t need to know Kubernetes to scale applications on the cloud. Learn how to operate containers on Cloud Run to propel your company ahead even without a DevOps engineer. In this session, we’ll explore other GCP services like Cloud Build, and Cloud Logging to help you achieve business goals. ​​You’ll gain practical knowledge and useful tips on running most workloads on serverless containers that can scale to zero when there is no traffic.

About the speaker:

Geshan is a seasoned software engineer, with over 15 years of software engineering experience. Currently, in Sydney, Australia serving Simply Wall St. as a senior software engineer. He prioritizes business value over language or framework choices, showcasing his language-agnostic approach. He has spoken at tech conferences in multiple countries. Actively involved with the developer community, he is a Google Developer Expert (GDE) for the Google Cloud Platform (GCP) and a GDG organizer too.
