Accelerate your application development and delivery


Delivering software quickly, reliably, and safely is at the heart of every digital transformation and application modernization journey. After all, an increase in speed generates powerful business outcomes.

Driving developer productivity First, Google added support for Cloud Run, Google’s fully managed container platform, into google Cloud Code IDE plugins. Now you can write, deploy, and debug containerized applications directly from your IDEs such as VS Code and IntelliJ onto google’s fully managed serverless runtime. The integration comes with starter templates in various languages including Java, Node.js, Python, and Go—making it easy to get started and observe best practices. This in turn helps you rapidly explore the core benefits of Cloud Run such as automated day 2 operations, and cost-effective, automatically scaled containerized applications. 

Second, google built in extensive support for fast feedback as part of the local development loop. To achieve this, Cloud Code includes a new Cloud Run emulator for VS Code and IntellIJ that runs on your local machine to let you quickly validate changes, thereby taking away the toil of iterating on and redeploying changes. Once you’ve vetted the changes locally, you can push the changes directly as an update/revision to Cloud Run right from within the IDE. With the ability to rapidly iterate on your code locally as well in the cloud, you can catch issues early and resolve any issues discovered in the live application. 

Third, to further enable you to start building applications quickly, Google have added built-in support for Google Cloud Buildpacks in Cloud Code. Developers should focus their effort on translating business requirements into code—not working out how to containerize that code. Today, developers spend a lot of time writing Dockerfiles and defining how a container should be built. This process is error-prone and requires skills and time that are better spent developing new functionality. Google Cloud Buildpacks pull together all the dependencies and frameworks required to run your application without a Dockerfile. These buildpacks also provide a great way for security teams to validate what runs on the platform, ensuring compliance and an enhanced security posture. Cloud Buildpacks are fully supported by Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE), Cloud Run and Anthos. The above enhancements in Cloud Code and Cloud Run streamline application development and delivery. As you build larger applications and automate increasingly complex business processes, you may need to integrate Google Cloud APIs, External APIs, and Google's serverless runtimes.  Securing the software supply chain

Accelerated software delivery goes hand in hand with “shifting left” on security. And in an era of ubiquitous threats, securing the software supply chain is vitally important. However, you don’t want security reviews to slow you down. DORA’s research highlights how the highest performing “Elite” teams are able to conduct security reviews in days, by building security throughout the software development process. The same process can take weeks for low performers. To help you improve your security posture and employ practices implemented by Elite performers, Artifact Registry is now available in beta.

Deliver better software, faster.

Our goal with these releases is to give you the speed, security, and stability you need to implement application development and deliver practices employed by Elite DevOps teams. You can see all of these new features in action here

Use Vault for Gmail Confidential Messages and Jamboard Files

Google vault will be supporting two new formats in the future, Gmail confidential mode emails & Jamboard files stored in Google Drive. Google Vault gives you a chance to retain, hold, search, and export data to support your organization’s retention and eDiscovery needs. This dispatch includes support for new information types with the goal that you can thoroughly oversee your association's information. What happens when individuals in your association sends confidential messages? Vault can hold, retain, search, and export all confidential mode messages sent by users in your association. Messages are constantly accessible to Vault, notwithstanding when the sender sets a termination date or denies access to private messages. Here’s an example of what will see in Vault when they search for and preview this email sent by . But It’ll not work vise versa. Admins can hold, retain, search and export message headers and s

Zoom’s Work Transformation Summit on Jan. 19: Fresh Approaches for Moving Forward

These past two years have undoubtedly reshaped work. More specifically, these past two years — shuffling between remote, in-person, and hybrid work scenarios — reshaped what employees expect out of their jobs, how they want to work, and what the office means to them.  Organizations are challenged with making big decisions to meet those expectations, and those decisions will dramatically alter how they hire, manage their facilities, buy technology, and maintain productivity. Simply adjusting policies and retooling previous work models won’t do. It takes a comprehensive reimagining. To help organizations navigate this next phase of work, Zoom is hosting our  Work Transformation Summit  on Jan. 19, a free, half-day virtual event designed to provide you and your organization with meaningful strategies, creative approaches, and innovative solutions for redefining work.  Summit attendees will have the opportunity to hear from peers and industry experts on the importance of embracing technolo

Access well-known educational technology tools straight from Google Classroom.

  We're making it simpler for instructors to use popular EdTech products that are most effective for their class right in Google Classroom with a new seamless integration of single sign-on, assigning, and grading. With the help of this feature, teachers can find, assign, and grade interesting content for their classes, and both teachers and students can access their EdTech tools without needing to navigate to other websites or apps or go through a cumbersome login process that requires remembering numerous usernames and passwords. This offers a more simplified experience when using technology to affect learning, in addition to saving instructors and students time. We partnered with 15+ EdTech companies to build custom add-ons, including Kahoot!, Pear Deck, IXL, and Nearpod.  Admins :  In order for educators to use add-ons, district administrators must provide access to them. For further information on how to install the add-ons functionality and specific add-ons for a domain, OU, o
