7:10-8:10pm Google Cloud Bigtable: what is it for?  - Jenny Tong

Title: Google Cloud Bigtable: what is it for? 

Abstract: Bigtable is a sparsely populated table that can scale to billions of rows and thousands of columns, allowing you to store petabytes of data.
That sounds impressive, but what's Bigtable really great at? When should you use it instead of instead of Cloud SQL or Datastore?
In this talk Jen Tong, a Developer Advocate from Google, will explain why Bigtable is awesome and show you some demos that shows it shining.
