TL;DR 100 — February 23, 2018

AMP stories

The Accelerated Mobile Pages, or AMP, story format provides you with a mobile-focused format for delivering news and information as visually rich, tap-through stories. To get started, head on over to the post for links to a tutorial and documentation.

AMP in Email

AMP for Email is also now available for emails to be formatted and sent as AMP documents. As a part of this, we’re kicking off the Gmail Developer Preview of AMP for Email — so once you’ve built your emails, you’ll be able to test them in Gmail. Take a look at the post for code and a link to the spec.

A better way to track your promotions on Google Play Billing

Starting today, the API for Purchases.products will return “Promo” as a new value for the field purchaseType when the user redeems a promo code. This improvement to the Google Play Developer API makes it easier to track your promotions from your own backend. For more details and links to the docs, check out the post.

Go 1.10

Go 1.10 is now available. It includes automatic caching of build & test results as well as hundreds of other, smaller changes. Links to the release notes and the download page are on the post.

Firebase Cloud Messaging

You can now integrate your server-side applications with the Firebase Cloud Messaging v1 API using the Firebase Admin SDKs, which allows you to send messages and manage topic subscriptions. Check out the post for some code and links to the docs.

96 vCPU Compute Engine instances

Compute Engine machine types with 96 vCPUs and up to 624 GB of memory are now generally available. For applications that can scale vertically, you can leverage all 96 vCPUs to decrease the number of VMs needed to run your applications, while reducing your total cost of ownership. Take a look at the post for more details.

Professional Data Engineer Practice Exam

If you’re wondering if you are prepared for your Professional Data Engineer certification exam, well, Google Cloud Certified now offers an online practice exam. We designed it to help you familiarize yourself with the type of questions that will be asked and check your readiness. More details and a link are on the post.
