Google is a Data business: over the past few years, many of the tools Google created to store, query, analyze, visualize its data, have been exposed to developers as services.

This talk will give you an overview of Google services for Data Crunchers:

  • Google Storage for developers
  • BigQuery, fast interactive queries on Terabytes of data
  • Machine Learning API: Machine Learning made easy
  • Google App Engine, exposing Data APIs is a very common use case for App Engine
  • Visualization API: many cool visualization components
  • Services that have not been announced as of the writing of this proposal but may be available when the conference happens:-)
