Totally awesome 8-bit version of Ghibli's Spirited Away. They seem to capture the entire essence of the movie in < 5 minutes. Don't watch if you've not seen the actual movie.

A few weeks ago I ran the first pilot of the new Google Cloud Platforms Fundamentals course in London which was great fun for all involved.

I'm going to be delivering another free edition of this introductory course virtually and split over 4 sessions. If you're new to Cloud and would like to learn how to make the most of the $300 credit free trial then please join me for a walkthrough of some of the highlights offered by Google Cloud Platform.

I took part in #GoogleLaunchpad Week London at +Campus London this past week with around 15 startups, and it was great to see the progress they are making moving to the cloud earlier in their product development. Every startup I mentored this year was already in the process of moving to the cloud and the conversations were more around the merits of using managed services vs pure IaaS. Lots of excitement and interest in +Firebase and Google App Engine in particular.

There's been a rise in questions concerning server-side access with the new Identity API, so I've put together this article to cover some use-cases.

Hoping to share something about VNC connections myself in the next couple of weeks but this looks like a great tutorial to walk you through the process.

This link was sent through to me by +Udacity, it makes for a fascinating read. Some of the more interesting points:

92.1% of respondents identify as male

"Developers in India are 3-times more likely to be female than developers in the United States."

50% of developers say working remote is at least somewhat important.
Where do developers live? How much do developers earn? Vim or Emacs? Tabs or spaces? This is the most comprehensive software developer survey on earth.

Compute Engine  - 
 
 
I often need vanilla linux environments to run code in when testing and developing with Google Cloud Platform. There are usually a bunch of packages and configuration parameters that I also need that make total sense to automate with a simple bash script. I think my needs are generic enough that the wider developer community is likely to find the same script useful in some contexts. I've packaged up the script together with an Apache 2 license and usage instructions on GitHub. The script is also available for use through one of my Google Cloud Storage buckets.

Right now the script prepares a Debian instance for basic development in both Python and Java. If there are any popular requests for further features let me know in the comments and I'll consider adding to the script in the future based on feedback.

A more detailed list of installed software can be found in the instructions but here is a summary:

Git
MySQL client
Gradle 2.3
Google App Engine Java & Python SDKs
pylint
pep8
