C2C Live: Paris - May 10, 2022

Our kick-off event for the EMEA region belongs to the past. It’s history.

But the beauty of this platform is that we can keep talking about it. About the topics, the speakers, the event!

Quotes & Testimonials

Our event started on time. With our French GCP Leaders, @antoine.castex and @guillaume blaquiere welcoming everyone.

Antoine & Guillaume - C2C Team Leaders

Then it was @Marcy.Young’s turn to welcome everyone and talk about our Community. What to expect from the event. What is a Community and why to join us.

Marcy - C2C Director of Sales and Alliances

Frank Zerbib, the Customer Engineering Director at Google Cloud France, was our keynote speaker. He talked about the Google Cloud regions, the footprint that Google Cloud is planning to have in the EMEA but also for the global investments by 2023. The connectivity and the infrastructure. And so many other useful things.

If you are wondering how to achieve the highest data privacy in the public cloud the answer is simply. Trust, by trusting less.

Patrick Masse, from our sponsor AMD, and @Sébastien BOTHOREL, from Thales, informed us about the data security concerns. The regulations and compliance, the data sovereignty. And how they have extended the capability of Confidential VMs to deliver unified control over data at-rest, in-use and in-transit.

We knew that everyone needed a small break to eat, drink, to chat, to network. And it was awesome to see all our members talk to each other.

Networking small break

After the small break @leighaj got the microphone and the stage! Talked about Looker. How to do modern analytics with Looker + BigQuery. She explained what is Looker and why to use Looker in combination with BigQuery. She had prepared a demo for us. LookML built for BigQuery! 😲 At the end Lea informed us about the 2022 Looker Product Roadmap.

@Matthieu BUREL was amazing. He managed to talk about Looker and BigQuery not only with a demo but also talking about Ratatouille, Lord of the Rings and the spaghetti western The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.

Matthieu Burel, DataVisualization & BI Platforms Manager, L'Oréal

And our Looker topic finished with Mehdi. An insightful talk on how Carrefour is using Looker with BigQuery. Their data valorization solutions. 

Mehdi Labassi, CTO Carrefour Links

At the end of our event Lucas and Youssef, from the L’Oréal Accelerator team, talked about how they use their consumer feedback to improve their products. AI & ML on GCP in a few words.

Youssef El Ouard, Project Manager, L'Oréal

 

Lucas Zanini, Data Scientist, L'Oréal

Hi Guys ! Hope you arrived home safely.

It was an amazing event indeed, thanks for the well-run organization and the opportunity to know more about the vibrant C2C community.

It was so cool to meet and discuss in-person with so many insightful people !

Last thought, what about organizing a future edition of the C2C connect in our Digital Hub at Carrefour Paris headquarters ? That would definitely be awesome :)

All the best,

Hello @Mehdi_Labassi ! We arrived well and safe and full of wonderful memories! Thank you for an awesome presentation and thank you for an awesome time in general!

Wow! I think this sounds fantastic! But since I’m not responsible for France, I will pass the ball and let @ilias to answer this 😁

What I do what to say though is that we had an unforgettable experience and we are all looking forward to seeing you all again! We left France with the best memories!
