back to article Devs invited to bake 'Run on Google Cloud' button into git repos... By Google, of course

Google has come up with a neat idea to promote its serverless container service, Cloud Run, by asking developers to incorporate a "Run on Google Cloud" button into their git repositories. The Cloud Run Button is a "single click" option to build and deploy a container-based application to Google's cloud – though in practice a …
