Why would I start this blog this way, I mean talking about Google ? Google says enough about Google, isn’t it ?!
Google products (there are a lot) are part of the core tools upon which I lead my activities
It is not lying to say I am definitively a Google fanboy and as such I couldn’t miss the Paris GCP Summit 2017.
Below you cans see a few pictures of the event.
So what are my favorite Google tools ?
It could be a long list but let’s make is not so long :
- Chrome : what else ?
- G Suite (Inbox helps productivity)
- Google Cloud Platform (GCP) of course : the DIY cloud !
- Android OS : the Essential
- Assistant is getting easier now
- YouTube for instant music
- Wear OS for my digital watch (Fit helps me to keep fit)
- Trips is quite practical
- Analytics tools
I can share with you this Referral link or G Suite
I am trying to handle Magenta – it is cool for creative and arty experiments. Basically it is Machine learning based on TensorFlow.

Google for Nonprofits
I like Google does a lot for non profit in which I am interested into too.
Learning with Google
The company does a lot to make all these products and tools user friendly and easy to handle ; however, it is useful to train for better understanding.
In Paris Google provides sometimes full day trainings for the Cloud Platform and even delivers a certificate for all attendees ; I was lucky enough to participate and got my own reward !
For sure there are alternatives to Google.
For example cloud services AWS (Amazon Web Services) is a great platform too. Many companies rely on AWS for all kinds of digital tools.
Actually I build projects with AWS myself.
There are Microsoft Azure, IBM Cloud, Alibaba Cloud and others…
Considering all these major companies and the centralized power they hold we speak very often about the GAFAM / BATX Threat.
It is a major issue of our time and all this may have negative consequences in the future, as regards individual freedoms…
