Automatically Deploying to Google Appengine from Github using Cloud Build

When it comes to CI/CD pipeline, Jenkins is one of the popular tools that a lot of software companies use. With google cloud build one can build and deploy their app right from source repository like GitHub to AppEngine. It's a pay as you go service. However the first 120 build-minutes per day is free, so one can very easily try for their side projects where the deployment frequency is not more than a few times a day. However its always a good idea to limit your billing account and have alerts on usage in case it goes over the free tier due to some build stuck and running indefinitely. Here we will take an example of a go based appengine standard project.

First, to have Cloud Build be able to deploy to appengine we need to give the service account it's going to use the roles that are required.

Find the project id

NUM=$(gcloud projects describe $PROJECT \ --format="value(projectNumber)") && echo ${NUM}
Derive the service account name from the project id and as…

Google Cloud Study Jams 2019, Hyderabad Week 3

After successful week 1 and week 2, it was time for week 3 of the Cloud Study Jam Hyderabad 2019. It was a full day event where participants were supposed to do labs from the Qwiklabs quest Baseline: Data, ML, AI with a lot of labs starting from Big Data services from GCP like BigQuery, CloudSQL, Dataproc to NLP APIs and Dataprep to ML Engine. More time was dedicated to this session on purpose. To make a data-driven decision we (GDG Hyderabad) had recently posted a poll and asked the community about the topics they are interested in.

Which topic would you love to learn from @googlecloud study jams? #StudyJam19#CloudStudyJam19#GDG#GoogleCloud#GoogleCloudFacilitator#GoogleCloudStudyJam#Hyderabad — GDG Hyderabad (@gdg_hyd) February 13, 2019

Google Cloud Study Jams 2019, Hyderabad Week 2

After the massive opening week of Cloud Study Jam last week. We had a great week 2 with follow up sessions on Google Cloud SDK, Appengine, CloudSQL, CloudFunction, Cloud Datastore etc. I was the primary instructor in this session, so I have been looking forward to this day for a while. Like last time the attendance again beat out expectation. The retention rate was beyond our imagination. It shows not only that the 1st week was really successful but also people are genuinely interested to learn about the cloud.

Kudos! Wonderful to witness great retention at @googlecloud Study Jam #Hyderabad 2019 - [Week 2 - Deploy & Develop] session. — GDG Hyderabad (@gdg_hyd) March 9, 2019 From the quick survey, it turned out most of them already completed the week 1's quest - GCP essentials or at least completed the parts which are pre-requisite for this session or just to get started with Google Cloud Platfor…
