@yuval  I’ve wanted to start up a coffee chat/monthly meetup centered around “How do they do that” for a while…

Rough concept sketch is to take a really popular product or solution that we use each day, Netflix, Spotifiy, Virtual Showrooms come to mind, that most folks have no idea how they actually work they just enjoy, and then getting a small crew together to talk through what/how you would architect this product if you were building it yourself. Allow others in the community to listen in and discuss. There are no right answers, the idea is not to perfectly solution what they actually do, more so to showcase and openly share what all needs to come together to make something like this run. 

Your note on flight testing and experimenting with architectures is what caught my eye and that we have a lot of architects in the community. I’d love your thoughts on something like this...right wrong or indifferent as I think it would be a lot of fun for folks to join in. 



Sounds interesting though many companies have engineering blogs where they discuss internals. Would also be interesting to ask the customers to talk about how they are architected on GCP. I bet a lot of them, given the time and freedom to start from scratch would like to do things differently.
