Google’s Cloud Platform Developer Roadshow will be in London on April 10th

Our wonderful annual supporters Google Cloud Platform are running a Roadshow which will be in London on April 10th – and there’s a good chance it will be followed by a MoMoLo event, so definitely a day to mark in your diary!

The Roadshow will kick off immediately following some major product announcements slated for March 25, and will visit 27 cities around the world. If you’d like to attend, register here.

In the Roadshow, Google will be talking about new approaches to computing that enable you to move beyond traditional divisions of PaaS and IaaS. They will also show their new developer experience that enables you to work more efficiently as you build, test, and deploy your code. This is a great opportunity to see behind the scenes of the world's biggest cloud and engage with the international Google Cloud Platform team. The Roadshow will also be in Manchester on April 9th.
