Heyo Hacker, very excited to announce that Hacker Noon has joined the Google Cloud for Startups program, which provides high growth companies cloud credits (up to $100K), technical support, and access to an engaging startup community.

Google Cloud Platform and Firebase give Hacker Noon the flexibility to craft a custom publishing platform optimized for technologists,” said Hacker Noon Interim CTO Dane Lyons. “Our serverless infrastructure will generate static content and pipe it into the low latency, low-cost Google Cloud CDN. We’re excited to focus on important product details and worry less about devops and cost optimizations.”

As a startup working to free ourselves from platform dependency, it’s humbling to have Google support our own infrastructure. These resources make our future more secure, our monthly burn rate more manageable, and ultimately provide a stronger partner for serving high volumes of traffic in the long-term. We’re very excited about launching the next iteration of Hacker Noon with Google Cloud Platform and Firebase!

In honor of Google’s support, we’ve dug into the Hacker Noon library, and would like to share 50 stories about Google*:
