Google Developer Experts around the world impact the developer community in meaningful ways, with talks, blogposts, code contribution and bug discovery.  Measuring this impact for the program is critical, the GDE tracking app is a step in that direction. Using public posts in Google Plus with specialised hashtags, the application can identify and classify activities and stores them in the App Engine Datastore.

We recently migrated the batch jobs from Google Apps Script to Google App Engine CRON jobs.

What a stiff and awkward design for Google Play Services and Developer Console!!!  So untypical for Google which normally produces a very robust and deep thought APIs and sites. This is a real nightmare.

Nevertheless, I managed to overcome the difficulties, apart of a single one: I want a delete an app from the list of linked app, but, since a project is published, there is no way to delete it. As a result, an accepted invitation calls a wrong app! I would delete the Google Services project and create a new one, but the system doesn't allow this either!  Unpublishing the project does not help either, because, as I can see it, an application cannot be linked to several Console projects.

Only Google personnel can help me with this problem. But is there a way to get REAL Google's help?

$150 dollars per month for a "silver" support? Firstly, it may not help alter all. Secondly, I don't know what is the minimum period of this contract; since Google  knows my account details, they can charge me forever! Thirdly, this is not my fault, but rather a consequence of a terrible Google's design.  I can't see a logical  reason, why an application can't be unlinked, after the project is published, or why a published project cannot be deleted.

Help! Help! Help! Will I get it at once?

+Hareem Haque we're a small team and we focus just on python development. Ferris is actually heavily influenced by CakePHP which, to the best of my knowledge, runs fine on App Engine. Of course, you miss out on how tailored Ferris is to App Engine.

Unless you're working with an existing platform like Drupal or Wordpress, you do have the option to start the application in python instead of php. Python is a very easy language to learn.

I can't speak for Google, but you're welcome to go and star the issue in the App Engine issue tracker to keep up with their progress on general availability for the PHP runtime.

Where can I report bugs in cloud DNS verification code?

The .uk TLD operator Nominet recently started allowing registrations directly within the .uk TLD, rather than requiring a second level domain (i.e. co.uk, org.uk, etc.).  I am trying to create a managed zone within .uk on cloud DNS but every time I try I get :

ERROR: (gcloud.dns.managed-zone.create) ResponseError: status=400, code=Bad Request, reason(s)=invalid
message=Invalid value for 'entity.managedZone.dnsName': 'big-tr.uk'

This is a valid domain, and is verified with my account.  I can only assume that it is failing because the code requires a 2nd level domain for .uk domains...

With push-to-deploy, is there a way to retry a failed deployment (which happen occasionally for no apparent reasons)?

Without having to do:

git commit -m "Redeploy" --allow-empty
git push origin master

Not at present. An empty commit followed by a push is the retry option for a failed deployment

Using BigQuery from Ruby with the BigBroda gem?

At https://teowaki.com we found out the gem had a couple of API calls broken. You couldn't use jobs.getQueryResults or jobs.list which are, as you probably know, very convenient for long queries or for batch ones.

I had my fork just merged into the official repository, so now you can use those API calls too :)

Was there any news out of #io2014  about PHP leaving preview? Alternatively, are there any people using the PHP runtime for production apps who can advise as to its stability?

I was really hoping for it to hit GA and get an SLA so I could recommend it for hosting.

Yeah, I read that off the website as well. Was kinda hoping that some more forward looking news may have been shared by the team at I/O which may not have made its way to the website.

Absolutely the best (only) talk on Cloud Performance at Google I/O 2014!

In this talk we covered:

Why Fast matters
Building a culture of Fast at Google
Measure fast and long tail latency
Scale out, scale fast

In the thumbnail for the talk  +Weston Hutchins is thinking "I just wish that she would give me the darn clicker and let me talk for a bit". I'm thinking "My Precious..."

Has anyone got a Search API input reader for mapreduce (python)?

I'd find it useful. Would anyone else?
