It's obviously that time again where there are major conferences from big companies, so this time it's Google's I/O that I'll be focusing on. All the interesting cloud related announcements were already in Google Cloud Next, so this conference focuses on the consumer applications and platforms.
The first note after my holiday, and it's a Microsoft one. I have a backlog of interesting news, but between WannaCry and Microsoft Build 2017 there was enough material.
With Dockercon taking place last week that means today's note is all Docker with Moby and LinuxKit as the most important items, but I'll also have a brief look at the Modernize Traditional Apps program and Bitbucket Pipelines' new service container feature.
Google AutoDraw helps those who can't draw, and there's another new case of hacked home appliances (routers in this case) attacking sites. As a last minute addition I quickly mention Wercker's purchase by Oracle.
A couple of weeks ago, I mentioned that I would like to learn more about Google Cloud Platform. Two days later I learned that there would be a Google Cloud OnBoard session in Melbourne. This happened recently, so I put on an AWS shirt and went to check it out.
Blue Ocean was released, Ubuntu's Unity8 was cancelled, Google released a report about Android security, and Apple pre-announces new pro hardware.
APFS is rolling out on iOS devices, Australian banks lost a fight against Apple Pay, ISPs in the USA can collect and sell your internet history, and Samsung announced their new phone.
Apple updated products and bought Workflow. Google decides Symantec SSL certificates aren't good enough, and Stack Overflow releases their latest developer survey results.
Docker donates containerd and Google comes with a new image compression technique.
Google Cloud Next was last week, and that is therefore this week's topic. There are several features for Google Cloud that are useful, but they also focused a bit more on their enterprise service offerings.
