Just got back from another awesome #PyCon  conference in #Montréal. The city's got a European flair to it as well as unique structures like Habitat 67, the Olympic Stadium, the(ir) Notre Dame cathedral (basilica), etc.

To those of us who think the California drought is bad, it's even worse for São Paulo (~12M residents, making it the largest city in Brazil and 7th largest in the world), which will run out of water soon (within months). See this report from The Guardian http://www.theguardian.com/cities/2015/feb/25/sao-paulo-brazil-failing-megacity-water-crisis-rationing as well as this NY Times piece: http://www.nytimes.com/2015/02/17/world/americas/drought-pushes-sao-paulo-brazil-toward-water-crisis.html. Here's a first-hand account of someone who has been living there: http://fusion.net/story/50036 This trend will continue and should serve as a heads-up to what may be coming our way sooner than later...  #water   #drought   #droughtliving  
In the first in a series looking at Brazil’s largest city, Claire Rigby reports that many paulistanos are hoarding water in their apartments – and some are even drilling homemade wells – as they prepare for possible rationing

Not to burst anyone else's bubble, but according to NASA, apparently California only has 1 year of water left: http://www.latimes.com/opinion/op-ed/la-oe-famiglietti-drought-california-20150313-story.html

Check out my latest episode to learn about connecting to Google Maps from a spreadsheet!!
 
In the 2015 kick off episode (http://goo.gl/oAzBN9) of the Launchpad Online developer video series (http://goo.gl/kFMUa6), Google engineer +wesley chun shows you how to connect to Google Maps from a spreadsheet! This isn't a party trick... you’ll learn how to do this, why it may be something useful to consider, and have real working code by the time you’re done. 

In an earlier video (http://goo.gl/1sXeuD), we introduced viewers to Google Apps Script (http://developers.google.com/apps-script), our cloud-based #JavaScript  environment giving developers access to Google Apps data as well as other Google services. In this sequel, we'll take your skills to the next level, creating a map based on a street address in a Google Sheet. And maybe, if you hang in till the end, we'll have an surprise bonus for you!

New to the series? Launchpad Online is technical content aimed at beginners. We introduce a Google developer feature with a little bit of code to help get you started.

Please tell us what you like and what topics you would like to see! #GoogleAppsScript #GoogleMaps #GoogleSheets #Gmail #LaunchpadOnline

Seasons greetings to all! I just launched 3 new videos, each covering a different dev tool for +Google Developers and +Google Cloud Platform developers!! Learn about Google Apps Script, email markup, and Google App Engine! Each episode features not only an overview but also a short code snippet that you can copy/craft for your own apps! There are also links in each episode that point to where you can find out more... enjoy! Here's the entire playlist: http://goo.gl/kFMUa6 To find out more about Startup Launch and Launchpad events: http://g.co/launch  #JavaScript   #Python   #schemaorg   #schemamarkup   #microdata   #xml   #json   #jsonld   #googleappsscript   #appsscript   #googleappengine   #appengine   
 
Holiday season potpourri from the Launchpad Online!
Happy Holidays to developers from Google engineer +wesley chun and the Launchpad Online (http://goo.gl/kFMUa6) developer video series! In the most recent episode (http://goo.gl/a6i9ci), we showed you how to list the files on your Google Drive after learning the boilerplate authorization code necessary to work with Google APIs. In the three new episodes we’re announcing today, let’s temporarily put aside raw API access to look at a variety of other Google developer tools. We start with this introduction (http://goo.gl/1sXeuD) to Google Apps Script, our cloud-based JavaScript environment that gives you access to Google Apps data as well as other Google services.

The next episode (http://goo.gl/GuH3L4) shows how you can enhance your customers’ experience by simply adding markup to the email messages you’re already sending them. The third episode (http://goo.gl/j553Wf) inspires you to create the next killer app and change the world starting with just 10 lines of code leveraging Google App Engine and #Python. Enjoy the holidays, and we look forward to helping get up-to-speed on many other Google APIs and developer tools in 2015!  #launchpadonline

My latest blogpost for +Google Developers using the +Google APIs Client Library for #Python ... specifically those calling oauth2client.tools.run() and getting deprecation warnings but can't find the fix.

In case you need some humor (and knowledge) to cheer you up on a Monday... 1) Flatulence http://io9.com/1691332756 and 2) Thomas Edison interview questions http://paleofuture.gizmodo.com/1689489019 (Note: it's worthwhile to scan the reader comments too!)

11 Google apps you probably didn’t know existed

#google #Apps +VentureBeat #business #marketing  
Google offers a myriad of widely used and well-liked digital services. But what about those that never make the headlines?

I wonder if this is like that magic trick where the magician made it seem like he picked all the winners of a day at the track by recording hundreds of possible outcomes and only showing the one that actually came true. (I looked it up...it was Derren Brown: The System https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p_0b4dkmD0w&list=PLE092237755A4A636 )

In this case, did EA upload hundreds or thousands of possible outcomes and delete all but one the minute the game was over?
