Many of you are familiar with G Suite (formerly Google Apps) as Google's productivity suite comprised of Gmail, Google Drive, Calendar, Docs, Sheets, and Slides. You may also know something about GCP, the Google Cloud Platform, a suite of cloud products featuring virtual machines, data storage, networking, security, and machine learning APIs. 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 GCP & G Suite can be used together to build powerful solutions. At the end of the day, it's not 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 sides as well as highlights several novel solutions that have already been built. The goal is to provide inspiration and show developers the possibilities when they build with ALL of Google Cloud.

Doors Open at 6:30 PM, announcements will be at 7 PM, followed by the main presentation. The doors from the parking garage automatically lock at 7 PM, so you may be delayed waiting for security to open the doors if you arrive after 7 PM.
Food will be provided at 6:30, but due to unreliable RSVP counts, we only get enough for about 20 people. Come early to make sure you get some!
