What's new in App Engine with Steren Giannini and Stewart Reichling

Mark and Melanie are your hosts again this week as we talk with Steren Giannini and Stewart Reichling discussing what’s new with App Engine. Particularly its new second generation runtime, allowing headless Chrome, and better language support! And automatic scalability to make your life easier, too. App Engine also has an interesting way of inspiring new Google products. Tune in to learn more! Steren Giannini Steren Giannini is a Product Manager on Google Cloud Platform (GCP). He graduated from École Centrale Lyon, France and then was CTO of a startup that created mobile and multi-device solutions. After joining Google, Steren launched Stackdriver Error Reporting and now focuses on GCP’s serverless offering. Recently, Steren has been working on upgrading App Engine’s auto scaling system and bringing Node.js to App Engine standard environment. Stewart Reichling Stewart Reichling is a Product Manager on Google Cloud Platform (GCP). He is a graduate of Georgia Institute of Technology and has worked across Strategy, Marketing and Product Management at Google.
