Live from Next Paris: Empowering Developers to Build Smart Applications

This morning in Paris we delivered our 7th Google Cloud Platform Next experience of 2015. We started Next because we wanted to bring Google Cloud Platform to you so you can learn about and try the tools to build your next great project. Thanks to Next we've been able to engage with more than 23,000 developers around the world. Google Cloud Platform Next has brought us closer to you and we're looking forward to announcing our 2016 tour on our website soon.

We also want to share some new products which we're announcing today at Next in Paris:

Google Cloud Datalab, available today in Beta is a web-based interactive developer tool that allows you to get insights from your raw data and explore, share, and publish reports in a fast, simple and cost-effective way. Cloud Datalab combines the power of Google BigQuery and Google Cloud Storage with familiar data science ecosystems built around IPython, removing the need for complex integration between products.

Cloud Datalab is an interactive tool that enables you to write code to:
  1. Explore, transform, visualize and process data in Google Cloud Platform.
  2. Combine code from multiple languages seamlessly: Python, SQL and JavaScript (BigQuery UDF).
  3. Build and test data pipeline for deployment to BigQuery.
  4. Create, tune, and deploy Machine Learning models.

Cloud Datalab removes common barriers of getting started. Instead it provides a ready-to-use, fully setup, secure, multi-user environment integrated with source control for developers and data scientists. With Cloud Datalab, you can focus on your data analysis tasks immediately.

Google Cloud Shell - a Google Curated Admin Machine at your fingertips!
Our customers want to be able to easily manage their infrastructure and applications when running on Google Cloud Platform no matter where they are.  Building on the ability to SSH from the browser we released for Google Compute Engine VM instances last year, today we’re launching Google Cloud Shell Beta, which extends from just VMs to all aspects of the platform.

Google Cloud Shell provides you with command-line access to computing resources hosted on Google Cloud Platform and is now available in the Google Developers Console. We deliver Cloud Shell via a VM hosted and managed by Google, so you don’t have to worry about managing it alongside the rest of your production infrastructure.  To ensure that you can always pick up where you left off if you disconnect or move to a different machine, we’ve also set aside sufficient storage space for you to store your Cloud Shell sessions.

Launching Cloud Shell is easy. Just open the Google Developers Console and click the Cloud Shell icon in the top right from any page of the Console.

We have made using Google Cloud Platform easier and we’re excited to see how you’ll use this new feature to be even more productive. Google Cloud Shell is available to all customers free while in beta until early 2016. Learn more about Cloud Shell here.
