    Resilient Microservices with Containers, Kubernetes and Google Cloud
    Speaker: Matt Feigal
    Customer: Blendle
    + learn more
    Breakout 1
    Creating a single microservice is a well understood problem. Creating a cluster of load-balanced microservices that are resilient and self-healing is not so easy. Managing that cluster with rollouts and rollbacks, scaling individual services on demand, securely sharing secrets and configuration among services is even harder. Kubernetes, an open-source container management system, can help with this. In this talk, we will hear from Blendle who has made this journey from Monolith to Microservices, and will learn what makes Kubernetes a great system for automating deployment, operations, and scaling of containerized applications.

    Machine Learning APIs by example
    Speaker: Peter Bavinck
    + learn more
    Breakout 2
    Think your business could make use of Google's machine learning expertise when it comes to powering and improving your business applications, but do you get stuck on building and training your own custom model? Google Cloud Platform (GCP) offers five APIs: Google Cloud Vision API, Cloud Speech API, Cloud Natural Language API, Cloud Translation API and Cloud Video API. These APIs access pre-trained machine learning models with a single API call. In this session, we'll share an overview of each API. Then we'll dive into code with a live demo.

    Breakout 2
    Google Cloud is at the forefront of developing cutting-edge machine learning technology. Tensorflow, Computer vision, predictive modeling, natural language understanding, and speech recognition are among the most popular business related uses of machine learning so far. In this video, you'll learn how to leverage machine learning for your own business applications. With machine learning, instead of programming a computer, you teach a computer to learn something and it does what you direct it to do. In this discussion, we'll share an overview of machine learning and how your business can benefit from it. We’ll cover the spectrum of ways Google uses machine learning and how businesses can leverage the technology that we've open-sourced. You'll also learn how you can embed machine learning in your applications today and create new applications powered with machine learning.

    For those who use popular open source data processing tools like Apache Spark and Hadoop, there can be several steps involved before being able to really focus on the data itself: creating a cluster to use the open source tools, finding a software package to easily install and manage the tools, then finding people to create jobs and applications and to operate, maintain and scale your clusters. In this session, you'll learn how you can use Google Cloud's managed Spark and Hadoop service, Google Cloud Dataproc, to take advantage of your existing investments in Spark and Hadoop. You'll have the opportunity to see how easily your existing data and code can be migrated to Google Cloud Platform (GCP) and how within Cloud Dataproc clusters can be right-sized, run ephemerally and cleanly separated to maximize your invested resources.
