Ever wonder how Google builds such fantastic products and services? We will take a look at some of the technology behind some of Google’s most famous products, like search, gmail and the ads platform. Some of these tools have been released as open source projects, like Kubernetes, and others have been turned into products for customers to use on Google Cloud. We will take a look at a few of the products and see how customers are using them to deliver planet scale applications to their enterprises and customers.


The topic is pretty entry level, but knowing the basics of cloud computing and application scaling would be helpful.
