How to develop Python Google Cloud Functions

I've been using Google's Cloud Functions for a project recently. My use case was building a small webscraper that periodically downloads excel files from a list of websites, parses them and write the structured data into a BigQuery database. In this blogpost I'll show you why going serverless with cloud functions is so amazing and cost-effective. And I'll discuss some practical problems that have solutions you can't easily find in the documentation or stackoverflow.
