C2C Monthly Recap: October 2022

By C2C Team | November 29, 2022

Each month, C2C shares the latest news from the team and the best highlights from all of you here in the community. Read on for the most essential C2C updates from October 2022.


Where we've been

October is a busy time for Google Cloud - Googlers, partners, and customers alike finally get to hear all the latest and greatest announcements coming out of Google Cloud Next. And as the community for Google Cloud customers, C2C is dedicated not just to sharing these announcements, but to creating spaces for you and your peers to discuss them and how they can help you solve your technical and business problems.


Google Cloud Next: The DoiT International Director's Cut

At the Google Cloud Next '22 DoiT Director's Cut, longtime friends of C2C at DoiT International hosted an exclusive watch party in collaboration with C2C and Exabeam. Guests gathered early at Charmaine's Rooftop Bar & Lounge in San Francisco for coffee and introductions before convening to view the keynote. Next, DoiT Head of Global Alliances, frequent C2C event participant, and noted yellow labrador owner Spenser Paul ( @spenserpaul ) hosted a breakout session with colleague and Field Services Manager Maddy Kepple to break down the many announcements from the Google Cloud leadership and customers. Finally, Exabeam Global Alliances Sales Director Chris Archinal led an interactive session about improving security outcomes through data analytics and automation. The keynote screened early on the West Coast, so the program concluded by lunch, but guests happily lingered afterward for catering from Executive Chef Jason Fox.



At C2C Partner Pythian's Next on the Road watch party in New York City, C2C President Josh Berman ( @josh.berman ) appeared onsite to co-host a session all about taking the barrage of information provided during the next keynote and, as Pythian CTO Paul Lewis puts it, "making it real." Josh, Paul, and Sami Akbay of Google led a lively discussion with the attendees in the room, touching on everything from out-of-the-box AI and ML to paying for cloud services in cryptocurrency. "Josh did great," said Paul. "He caught everything and he answered in an amazing way."
