INESC-ID Seminar – Wesley Chun

Técnico - Alameda campus

A Google technical session with Wesley Chun (Senior Developer Advocate, Google Cloud) entitled “Cloud computing and Running code on Google Cloud”, will take place on 9th December 2019, from 11:00 to 12:00.

Cloud computing has taken over industry by storm, yet there aren’t enough new college grads who know enough about it.

This session begins with a vendor-agnostic, high-level overview of cloud computing, including its three primary service levels. This is followed by an introduction to Google Cloud, its developer platforms, and which products serve at which service levels. Attendees will learn how to run applications on Google Cloud serverless platforms (in Python & JavaScript; other languages are supported) as well as hear about the teaching & research grants available to faculty for use in the classroom or the lab. Google also provides a career-readiness program allowing students & faculty to qualify for an Associate Cloud Engineer certification, which, coupled with a college degree, represents a skillset that can be used on the job immediately. So whether you’re a professor, researcher, edtech consultant, IT staff, TA grad student, or lecturer, you’ll know how to run code on Google’s cloud and help enable the next-generation cloud-ready workforce.

Venue: North tower, EA2 amphitheatre.
