Today, Google announced a public preview of support for Python packages (using the Pypi repository format) in Artifact Registry. With this feature, you can create a private repository in your project where you can publish your packages, instead of pushing them to the public repository at Pypi.org.
If you are involved with the Google Cloud Platform billing for your organization, you may have noticed that there is currently no programmatic access to the details of your monthly invoice.
Read on to learn why this is frustrating and how you can ultimately solve the problem thanks to recent updates to the BigQuery Billing Export.
If you pay automatically with a credit card or direct debit, your invoice notifications…
The typical ETL process involves three steps:
Regardless of your source and the steps you may need to take to prepare your data, there are several options for loading data into BigQuery. …
Several years ago, when we started building Firecloud (“an open platform for secure and scalable analysis on the cloud”) we quickly discovered a need for a general purpose authentication and authorization proxy that we could deploy in front of each of our micro services.
Rather than having each of the engineering teams build auth and security features into their respective applications, we wanted to provide those features as a self-contained component that could be deployed along-side each micro service.
The key features we wanted to externalize included:
Before you can get started building infrastructure, applications and services on the public cloud, the first thing you need to concern yourself with is how you are going to pay for it.
Your Billing Account will be linked to a Google payments profile that will be used to pay for any cloud resources you create, such as virtual machines and storage, as well as any other services you consume, such as network traffic or support.
In addition to defining how you will…
You can now run the Atom Editor (or MS Code, or any other Linux apps) on your Pixelbook with Crostini! This can be done without going into Developer Mode, by simply enabling the Chrome OS Dev Channel (verify your version is 67.0.3383.0 or newer) and then following the directions below.
More information available at the GitHub repo, here:

u2f_flags u2f , to include the usage info and the fact that this feature is now available in the stable channel.
With the new Google Pixelbook and the newest release of the Chrome dev channel, you can use the power button as a built-in UTF key for 2fa/2sv. This is useful, because the device only has two USB-C ports so you don’t want to permanently fill one up with a YubiKey 4c or 4c Nano.
To enable this feature, first make sure you have the newest version of Chrome from the stable channel…
As a GCP developer, I find the podcast incredibly useful. In addition to the Questions and Cool Things of the Week, each episode features an in-depth discussion with a guest (or guests!) about a Google Cloud product, service, customer, or other topic of interest.
Even though it has been running for over a year and a half, I have to admit I that I didn’t start listening regularly until a year after it started. #shame…
However, if you started using GCP before the Organization resource became generally available, you may have a number of projects that were created by your G Suite users before the Organization resource for your domain existed. These projects are currently out of your control.
I recently began working on my first App Engine application, following Google’s Quickstart for Python App Engine Standard Environment.
My application needs to be able to authenticate against to some Google APIs with OAuth 2.0. There are several ways to do this from App Engine, but all of them require you to have access to oauth2client.
I naturally assumed that oauth2client would be automatically included in the App Engine Standard Environment, because it’s installed as one of the dependencies for google-api-python-client. But the client libraries are not included by default.
