Cloud Platform  - 
 
Interesting development of particular interest to those following DevOps related news.
 
Google Cloud Platform is now available in Ravello. Now, full stack developers and DevOps practitioners can use Google Cloud Platform with Ravello to rapidly provision development & test environments - even for applications that may be running inside the datacenter on hypervisors. http://goo.gl/bE42Bf

This has got to be one of the most requested features I've heard from App Engine developers! Have you tried it? What do you think?
 
Yeah, Google Cloud Developer Console now allows to set a custom domain for App Engine apps. Google Apps no longer needed.

(Though, if you want to set up SSL via SNI, you still need to go through Google Apps, but I like the direction Google is taking with this.)

Really looking forward to visiting the Barbican show
 
DevArt Top 10 Finalists announced

DevArt is proud to present the Top 10 Finalists in this year's competition. Check out the DevArt gallery to see these inspiring art projects made with code including the shortlist of potential winners.

The judges deliberated over proposal from creative coders all over the world, from Los Angeles and Columbia to Paris, Moscow and Tokyo. They were truly inspired by how the ideas challenged the perception of what art and code can be.

Ten will soon become one - to be announced on or around April 17 - and the lucky winning creative coder will have their DevArt proposal realised as an interactive installation in the Barbican this summer. Watch this space! #DevArt
