After several meetups of GDG cloud and successful GDG Bauchi devfest in 2018, The cloud meetup resumed on January 19, with an amazing plan to impact more on the members of the GDG Cloud community in Bauchi, North-Eastern Nigeria.
GDG cloud Bauchi meetup was led by the co-lead organizer Motunrayo Alake Olasupo. It was exciting when I heard there would be cloud study Jam this year for members of the community.
Study jams are study groups organized by Google Developer Group (GDG) worldwide, it’s free and open to members of the community, not limited to only members. You can join the community to benefit from all the free training and easy access to some materials for learning.
In these study groups, attendees are expected to get personal tutoring by coaches, study & work with pears and most times receive a certificate after attendees complete tasks given to them at the study jam.
At the meetup, Fidelis Okafor who is also an organizer of GDG Bauchi and lead Facebook Bauchi Dev C. spoke on Cloud storage advantages, reasons why people should store data on the cloud, how data can be more secure on the cloud than hard drives or other storage devices one could have.
There was also hands-on session by the Google cloud Bauchi lead, Abubakar Siddiq Ango, who is also the CEO of Uplift Nigeria. He went on breaking down how to make use of the Google Cloud platform tools to all new members of the community. Talked on storage process, pricing, secure cloud services, cloud spanner, VM and more of the cloud tools.
Google Cloud is a problem solution; it is unified storage for developers and enterprises, it gives accessible storage that is secure for customers to save data on remote servers that can be accessed only from the internet or “cloud.”
Not easy to be accessed by the third party because a cloud storage service provider manages it on storage servers that are mainly built on virtualization.
The cloud storage redefines what the industry can expect from online storage by providing a unified offering across the availability spectrum: from live data tapped by today’s most demanding applications, to cloud archival solutions nearline and coldline.
GDG cloud community Bauchi is where you can learn more of the Google cloud storage, you can also join the community here, so when next there’s a meetup you’ll get a notification and add the date to your calendar.
