Today, the digital frontier, led by cloud-based technologies, is driving most initiatives across all sectors. I'm glad TechGig, in collaboration with Google Cloud, is launching Cloud DevJam at the time, a unique opportunity for technologists to explore, learn, and improve the Google Cloud platform.
