Anyone know who is a good person to give Datalab feedback to?

Some of our business users (most of whom are not that tech savvy i.e. analysts/BAs) are moaning about all the setup steps that are now required to run it e.g. install Docker, which leads to proxy issues etc.

When I looked at Datalab in Alpha with them a few months back it was a pure SaaS i.e. hit a URL and everything was spun up for you on GCP. They loved it, especially for the no-ops model. But that seems to have changed now, and it's putting them off using it.

To get it working with BigQuery was a nightmare too. We had to open up a terminal into the docker container and set the env param GOOGLE_APPLICATION_CREDENTIALS to point to a google credentials json file. Only then could Datalab connect to BigQuery.

My bitnami wordpress website on AWS is very slow and I'm thinking of moving it to google cloud. How can I take a backup of wordpress to the local machine and upload it on google cloud?

Although I'm a huge fan of GCP. I doubt if this will be a good solution. It's still wordpress... Recently I read about fastly, they have a wp plugin. Maybe a fast caching layer will be a better approach.

Im having problems with a website hosted on google cloud. I dont believe google support IPV6 on google cloud but when many people who have signed up with Sky broadband in the uk access the site, they get a 403 error. This has been narrowed down to a fault due to them being on an IPv6 connection. I believe by default they should recognise the server is ipv4 and switch to that but it doesnt seem to be working. Has anyone else experienced this and if so how did you handle it. Bar moving to an ipv6 server / hosting company i cant see a way around it.

I’ve recently started to use Gitlab for my project hostings and I’ve probably spent a little bit of an unhealthy amount of time and joy playing around with it. One of the things that really had me excited was the built in continuous integration (CI).

I found that there were lots of good articles on how to get setup with automatic build for Node.js, Jekyll sites etc. But I was lacking a complete guide for deploying to Google App Engine (GAE). So here it goes.
Continuous Integration is generally considered to be a good thing. Effective. Efficient. And makes your updates smooth and safe. But that’s…

I've tried to summarize all the latest updates to #BigQuery in recent months in a blog post. So much to cover. Man, this thing keeps on getting better and better!

Have you managed to import straight from DataStore backup files? DataStore backup is still a pretty rudimental feature, all or nothing. You can't choose to backup only some entity kinds, as far as I know.

How can I log the body of a request sent to an Appengine Endpoint. When encountering a JSONMappingException I would like to log the actual request.

Ay-up UK People,

I made a weather data(1910-2016) visualization web-application for the UK regions(London, UK, Wales, Scotland) using GAE, angularjs etc last weekend.

Need ideas how can I make this more interesting using the data that it collects.

I had great fun giving my talk on #BigQuery at the Google office in Sydney! Cold beers, good people, and great tech conversations. As an added bonus, Googler +Eric Anderson​ gave a fantastic demo of Dataflow/Beam.

Thanks to +Ed Knott​ and +Win Woo​ for organizing!

It's the same every time. When people see #BigQuery in action, their jaws simply hit the ground. I ramped up the demo until we hit 100B rows and 4TB. BigQuery smashed it in 30 seconds. At that point most people thought it was all a trick.

I assured them it wasn't.

Clash of the clouds; AWS, GCP, Azure and IBM answering your questions AMA style!!! miss it and you'll be sorry! http://goo.gl/WAuenm
Have you ever asked yourself or your dev-ops why you preferred cloud platform X over Y?Try it now and prepare to be amazed at how superficial the answers will be, replies such as: "It's what I know best" "That's what everybody else does" "I never tried anything else" "Y sucks!" (without ever trying it firsthand) Cloud is one of the most essential components of your product and everything suggests that it will grow to be even more prominent in yea...

I am new here and I am fairly much done with CP100A. I already have MS-AZURE architect level certifications. I am thinking of building cross cloud expert. Any pointers to CPA200? Cannot afford the classroom courses right now.  Any links to materials etc?

Guess they weren't lying about the recent internal improvements to #BigQuery. I just queried 4TB in 35s. That's outrageous!

Hi we have suddenly started getting Unauthorized error in the GCM api . We were using the Server key to trigger notifications in our app. It was working since past 2 years, but suddenly started giving unauthorized error starting last FRiday. We tried re-generating the server key, but it is still giving the same error. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
