Silicon Valley Code Camp : October 3rd and 4th, 2009
I'm currently a web developer working in San Francisco, formerly a support engineer for OpenSocial and Google App Engine. My current interests include HTML5 and related technologies, iOS and Android development, and augmented reality.
Introductory session on Google App Engine, Google's service for deploying Python- or Java-based web applications to Google's scalable infrastructure.
I'll take you through a live demonstration of building a real-world Stack Overflow-like application from scratch, touching on the various services of App Engine such as the scalable datastore, user authentication, and task queues, and by the end of the session, we'll have a fully functional web app that can be deployed.
If you're new to App Engine and/or want to see what you can build with App Engine with a little know-how and some spare time, this session is for you!
