  3. How much is 4% of 75? Hard to tell, right? Well, it's the same as 75% of 4, which is trivial and is 3. I guess it was never too late for me to realize that 4% * 75 = 4 * 0.01 * 75 = 4 * 75 * 0.01 = 4 * 75%
  4. I'm now convinced that the most impactful product advice I should give is simply: use your own product.
  5. Google Cloud has created its official set of buildpacks to help customers containerize apps in popular languages. They already are used in production on App Engine and Cloud Functions, and supported by many other products. cloud.google.com/blog/products/containers-kubernetes/google-cloud-now-supports-buildpacks

  6. 315 km/h (196mph) in the TGV 🚄⚡⚡⚡ To all of you living in France, take a second to realize that it's definitely not in every country that trains go so fast. Bonus points for emitting 20x less CO2 per passenger than cars 🚗💨 Thanks SNCF. cc @DansLeTGV

    ❄️🔥 Goodbye cold starts: You can now specify a minimum number of container instances to be kept warm and ready to serve requests. When they are not serving requests, CPU is 10x cheaper than normal. cloud.google.com/run/docs/configuring/min-instance

    🛑 Cloud Run now sends a SIGTERM signal before a container instance is shut down. If handled, CPU is allocated for 10s max This allows for graceful instance termination, giving your code some time to close any database connection or send some last telemetry data.

  9. Tired of screenshots that appear blurry on high density displays? introducing SVG screenshots. I wrote and deployed a small web service to Cloud Run that saves the given URL to an SVG image: html-to-svg.as-a-service.dev/?url=https://steren.fr Code at github.com/as-a-service/html-to-svg

  10. 🗺️ I built a tool to help pick a googlecloud region based on its carbon footprint, price and latency. Adjust 3 sliders, get a sorted list of regions: gcp-region-picker.web.app

  11. If you'd like to run arbitrary stateless containers on the Google Cloud Functions infrastructure, just fill g.co/serverlesscontainers to request an invite, we are currently in Alpha.
  12. Starting today, we are indicating regions with the lowest carbon impact in the Cloud Console location selectors. cloud.google.com/blog/topics/sustainability/pick-the-google-cloud-region-with-the-lowest-co2

  13. cron-as-a-service (@GCPcloud Cloud Scheduler) is now Generally Available. And you can now attach an identity to the invocations, in order to securely and privately invoke a Cloud Run service. cloud.google.com/blog/products/application-development/cloud-scheduler-a-fully-managed-cron-job-service-from-google-cloud

  15. Migrating from App Engine to Cloud Run? I wrote an online tool to translate your app.yaml into a Cloud Run YAML configuration (Knative Service): googlecloudplatform.github.io/app-engine-cloud-run-converter/

  16. "Developer Advocate" is also about advocating internally for the external developers. You might not realize this from the outside. DAs are essential to the product feedback loop.
  17. My Product Requirement Documents follow this structure: - Executive Summary - Context - Scope - Customer demand and feedback - Target Audience - Critical User Journeys - Feature Requirements - Milestones - Pricing - Revenue - Success metrics - Competitive Analysis
  18. Today I turned down an Java app deployed to App Engine 10 years ago (labs.steren.fr/2011/09/20/square-of-the-dead/) I never updated it. It was still running and processing data like on day 1. Kudos to the App Engine team. I know it went through a ton of internal migrations. 10 years is a long time.

  19. Without an J-1 Visa at creativecommons in 2008, I would not have been inspired to work in tech. Without an L-1 Visa at Google in 2017, I would not have been able to deliver Cloud Run and generate revenue. I'm an immigrant and I like to think I "bring value".
