Going to SXSWi 2016? Consider coming out to one of Tech.Co’s many events!

One of my favorite parts of SXSW are the connections made. Whether you are a startup or a goliath like Google, there are endless opportunities to get face time with the people creating and advancing the products you love the most. As such, the Google Cloud team is back again, and hosting a few can’t-miss events

From Saturday, March 12 through Monday, March 14, Googlers will be on hand to to help you discover, code, and learn more about the Google Cloud platform. There will also be tacos, so either way you can’t lose out.

During Google’s public events at their Cloud Studio you’ll be able to test out Google Cloud Platform with four coding challenges, take a 180-degree photo, or interact with the Google Vision Bot.

There will be four lightning talks on both Saturday and Sunday. Todd Prives, Google Product Manager of Media & Entertainment, will help empower your creativity using Zync. Andy Tzou; Google Product Marketing Manager, will host a lightsaber escape; Francesc Campy Flores, Google Developer Advocate, will jump into Cloud Spin V2.0; and Sara Robinson, Google Developer Advocate, will show you how to start building apps using the Vision API.
