About this event

Join Google Cloud Engineer Thomas Munduchira for a hands-on workshop using Google App Engine.

Google App Engine applications are easy to create, easy to maintain, and easy to scale as your traffic and data storage needs change. With App Engine, there are no servers to maintain. You simply upload your application and it's ready to go.

App Engine applications automatically scale based on incoming traffic. load balancing, microservices, authorization, SQL and NoSQL databases, Memcache, traffic splitting, logging, search, versioning, roll out and roll backs, and security scanning are all supported natively and are highly customizable.

App Engine's environments, the Standard environment and the Flexible environment , support a host of programming languages, including Java, Python, PHP, Node.js, Go, etc.. The two environments give users maximum flexibility in how their application behaves since each environment has certain strengths. Read The App Engine Environments for more information.

This workshop uses the sample code from the Google Cloud Node.js Getting Started Guide

You will learn how to:

  • Connect to computing resources hosted on Google Cloud via the web.
  • Use Cloud Shell and the Cloud SDK gcloud command.
  • How to create a Node.js Express application on Google App Engine.
  • How to update the code without taking the server down.
