Migrating App Engine Blobstore to Cloud Storage (Module 16)

Serverless Migration Station is a Serverless Expeditions mini-series, focused on helping developers modernize their applications running on a Google Cloud serverless compute platform. In this Module 16, the second video focused on App Engine Blobstore, Google engineers Martin & Wesley show developers how to migrate an App Engine app using its legacy Python NDB (Datastore) and Blobstore APIs. They also cover the webapp2 framework to Cloud NDB & Cloud Storage, the Flask framework, and upgrading to an app that’s both Python 2 & 3 compatible.
