Cloud Clients with Jon Skeet

Google builds cloud services for developers, such as PubSub, Cloud Storage, BigQuery, and Cloud DataStore. On Software Engineering Daily, we’ve done lots of shows about how these types of services are built. In this episode, we are zooming in on the interaction between the developer using a cloud service and the design and engineering of the client APIs.

 
To build a useful cloud service, Google has to make a common way of interacting with that service from any programming language on any device. Jon Skeet is a longtime engineer at Google, and he joins the show to explain how Google uses generated code to make the creation of those APIs more streamlined. We talk about gRPC, protocol buffers, C#, and lots of other topics.
