Superpower User Manual

I build tools, demos, codelabs, and other things to make the Google Cloud Platform easier and more fun to use. Originally from New Jersey, then Seattle, and now live and work in London. I co-authored a book about Google Compute Engine and wrote the product announcement demo. In a previous life, I developed communication systems at Bell Labs and Lucent Technologies. Outside of work, I enjoy indie music, quirky films (especially documentaries), books, puzzles, and chess. I’m also very interested in education, teaching, and applying technology (like spaced repetition) to enhance the learning experience.

Did you know you have superpowers? The average person now has access to more data and more powerful tools and computing resources than ever before. In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to combine Google cloud services, along with modern programming tools to analyze and visualize some interesting and practical questions. You’ll leave this session with a better sense of how much power is available right at your fingertips.
