Wonderful performance of a tender song, with a nice bit of audience participation added.

Had a great time, as always, sharing the stage in London and Prague (where this was recorded) with the multi-talented +Mandy Waite.
 
+Marc Cohen and I gave this talk at DevFest Praha on Saturday.  My first bit is an overview of Compute Engine and the meat of the talk starts at 12:00 when Marc takes over and talks about Cluster Management.

You should be hearing more now - GCE went general availability and there was a ton of press and blog coverage today. :)

I love when a popular song gets reworked with an acoustic arrangement. Here's Bon Jovi performing a lovely, down-tempo version of "It's My Life" with help from two guests from the All American Rejects.

Love this quote from Jeff Bezos:

I very frequently get the question: 'What's going to change in the next 10 years?' And that is a very interesting question; it's a very common one. I almost never get the question: 'What's not going to change in the next 10 years?' And I submit to you that that second question is actually the more important of the two -- because you can build a business strategy around the things that are stable in time. ... [I]n our retail business, we know that customers want low prices, and I know that's going to be true 10 years from now. They want fast delivery; they want vast selection. It's impossible to imagine a future 10 years from now where a customer comes up and says, 'Jeff I love Amazon; I just wish the prices were a little higher,' [or] 'I love Amazon; I just wish you'd deliver a little more slowly.' Impossible. And so the effort we put into those things, spinning those things up, we know the energy we put into it today will still be paying off dividends for our customers 10 years from now. When you have something that you know is true, even over the long term, you can afford to put a lot of energy into it.

Honored to share the stage with +Mandy Waite  and looking forward to showing off a new demo, which highlights Compute Engine's awesome performance.
 
Presenting on Compute Engine Clusters today at Velocity Conf Europe in London. Special guest star is +Marc Cohen who's our head of Compute DevRel. Talk is at 11:20, office hours at 12:30, but feel free to just grab me if you see me there.

Nice collection of sample apps illustrating how to use Google Cloud Endpoints, which is a great way to provide API services from App Engine to mobile and web clients (courtesy of +Dan Holevoet and +Paul Rashidi).
 
+Paul Rashidi and I have been working hard on more getting started examples for Google Cloud Endpoints.

The original example (a TicTacToe app) includes a lot of complexity around actually playing a game, which can get in the way when you're trying to figure out what Endpoints does. The simpler example "Hello Endpoints" tries to be as bare-bones as possible. Check out the following GitHub projects for the code:

Java backend + web client: https://github.com/GoogleCloudPlatform/appengine-endpoints-helloendpoints-java-maven
Python backend + web client: https://github.com/GoogleCloudPlatform/appengine-endpoints-helloendpoints-python
Android client: https://github.com/GoogleCloudPlatform/appengine-endpoints-helloendpoints-android
iOS client: https://github.com/GoogleCloudPlatform/appengine-endpoints-helloendpoints-ios

Enjoy!

Introduction
I manage Google's Developer Relations team in Seattle. We help software developers get the most out of the Google Cloud Platform, with a particular emphasis on Compute Engine and Cloud Storage. In a previous life, I helped design and build communication systems at Bell Labs and Lucent Technologies. When I'm not working, I enjoy indie music and films, writing, teaching, and chess.
