Setting Off Fireworks with Cloud Functions

Google Cloud Functions are amazingly versatile. Not only can they act as the glue between other cloud services —both on and off Google Cloud Platform— but their HTTP trigger capability makes them ideal for launching a single web page. In this hands-on lab, you'll see how to move Python code into a newly created Cloud Source Repository and then pull that code into a Cloud Function. Trigger the function with the click of a link, and you'll get the fireworks you've always wanted — complete with sound explosion.
