Google Cloud Next ‘24 is around the corner, and it’s the place to be if you’re serious about cloud development! Starting April 9 in Las Vegas, this global event promises a deep dive into the latest updates, features, and integrations for the services of Google Cloud’s managed container platform, Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) and Cloud Run. From effortlessing scaling and optimizing AI models to providing tailored environments across a range of workloads — there’s a session for everyone. Whether you’re a seasoned cloud pro or just starting your serverless journey, you can expect to learn new insights and skills to help you deliver powerful, yet flexible, managed container environments in this next era of AI innovation.

Don’t forget to add these sessions to your event agenda — you won’t want to miss them.

Google Kubernetes Engine sessions

OPS212: How Anthropic uses Google Kubernetes Engine to run inference for ClaudeLearn how Anthropic is using GKEs resource management and scaling capabilities to run inference for Claude, its family of foundational AI models, on TPU v5e [Recording, Slides]

OPS200: The past, present, and future of Google Kubernetes EngineKubernetes is turning 10 this year in June! Since its launch, Kubernetes has become the de facto platform to run and scale containerized workloads. The Google team will reflect on the past decade, highlight how some of the top GKE customers use our managed solution to run their businesses, and what the future holds [Recording, Slides].

DEV201: Go from large language model to market faster with Ray, Hugging Face, and LangChain Learn how to deploy Retrieval-Augmented Generation (RAG) applications on GKE using open-source tools and models like Ray, HuggingFace, and LangChain. We’ll also show you how to augment the application with your own enterprise data using the pgvector extension in Cloud SQL. After this session, you’ll be able to deploy your own RAG app on GKE and customize it [Recording, Slides].

DEV240: Run workloads not infrastructure with Google Kubernetes Engine Join this session to learn how GKE's automated infrastructure can simplify running Kubernetes in production. You’ll explore cost -optimization, autoscaling, and Day 2 operations, and learn how GKE allows you to focus on building and running applications instead of managing infrastructure [Slides].

OPS217: Access traffic management for your fleet using Google Kubernetes Engine EnterpriseMulti-cluster and tenant management are becoming an increasingly important topic. The platform team will show you how GKE Enterprise makes operating a fleet of clusters easy, and how to set up multi-cluster networking to manage traffic by combining it with the Kubernetes Gateway API controllers for GKE [Slides].

OPS304: Build an internal developer platform on Google Kubernetes Engine Enterprise 

Internal Developers Platforms (IDP) are simplifying how developers work, enabling them to be more productive by focusing on providing value and letting the platform do all the heavy lifting. In this session, the platform team will show you how GKE Enterprise can serve as a great starting point for launching your IDP and demo  the GKE Enterprise capabilities that make it all possible [Recording, Slides].

DEV208: Navigating Google Cloud - A comprehensive guide for website deploymentLearn about the major options for deploying websites on Google Cloud. This session will cover the full range of tools and services available to match different deployment strategies  — from simple buckets to containerized solutions to serverless platforms like Cloud Run [Recording, Slides].

DEV235: Java on Google Cloud — The enterprise, the serverless, and the native In this session, you’ll learn how to deploy Java Cloud apps to Google Cloud and explore all  the options for running Java workloads using various frameworks [Recording, Slides].

DEV237: Roll up your sleeves - Craft real-world generative AI Java in Cloud Run In this session, you’ll learn how to build powerful gen AI applications in Java and deploy them on Cloud Run using Vertex AI and Gemini models [Slides].

DEV253: Building generative AI apps on Google Cloud with LangChain Join this session to learn how to combine the popular open-source framework LangChain and Cloud Run to build LLM-based applications [Recording, Slides].

DEV228: How to deploy all the JavaScript frameworks to Cloud Run Have you ever wondered if you can deploy JavaScript applications to Cloud Run? Find out in this session as one Google Cloud developer advocate sets out to prove that you can by deploying as many JavaScript frameworks to Cloud Run as possible [Slides].

DEV241: Cloud-powered, API-first testing with Testcontainers and Kotlin Testcontainers is a popular API-first framework for testing applications. In this session, you’ll learn how to use the framework with an end-to-end example that uses Kotlin code in BigQuery and PubSub, Cloud Build, and Cloud Run to improve the testing feedback cycle [Slides].

ARC104: The ultimate hybrid example - A fireside chat about how Google Cloud powers (part of) Alphabet Join this fireside chat to learn about the ultimate hybrid use case — running Alphabet services in some of Google Cloud’s most popular offerings. Learn how Alphabet leverages Google Cloud runtimes like GKE, why it doesn’t run everything on Google Cloud, and the reason some products run partially on cloud [Slides].

DEV202: Accelerate your AI with Serverless

Serverless platforms and generative AI applications are a great match. In this talk you'll learn how Google Cloud's pay-as-you-go model for serverless runtimes can be used to supplement your generative AI model with function calling [Recording, Slides].

Dev299: A java developer walks into a serverless barThis session is for Java developers who want to learn how to deploy their apps to Google Cloud. It offers a practical guide to considerations, challenges, tips and tricks for optimizing your JVM for Serverless environments [Recording, Slides]

Firebase sessions
