Were excited to announce that Mark Lapasa will be presenting a great session that is sure to excite the entire GDG Toronto. You won't want to miss this one! RSVP today!

Session Description:

So you've built mobile clients and deployed them into the store. The
apps you make take advantage of the device features but the data your
users generate or consume come from 3rd party API's.
What if you could make your own API's? What if you're not a strong
server-side/database programmer or an experienced system administrator
who manages servers for a living? This talk is aimed to introduce
Google technologies currently available that will make developing
cloud based mobile application development faster and easier.

Audience:

200 Level

Session Summary:

  • Brief introduction to Native Android development
  • Brief introduction to Google App Engine
  • Introduction to Google Cloud Endpoints
  • Working example: CRUD Contact application
  • Demo: Game Prototype

    Great presentation on Cloud Endpoint. Presenter did the best he could given that this is bleeding edge technology. Would have liked to have a list of references at the end of the talk for a more deep dive later.

    I enjoyed the presentation very much. Mark was an amazing speaker. I loved the way he explained various programming concepts.

    Cloud Android is an eye opening technology. The presenter could try to make it a little more exciting by using some story telling and case scenarios to describe a use case. We did not need to be sold on native Android OS development at the outset of the presentation.

    • Lapasa D.

      I agree too David. I had a use case that I'm sure would have excited everyone but I couldn't have it demo-able in time for tonight. Maybe next time. Thanks for your feedback about Native Android dev. It's a tricky juggle how much to talk about of one side of Endpoints e.g. The server side or the client side.

    I had a 3000+ character note to post but I'm limited to 1000....you can find some great questions that were asked tonight by great people. You can find my responses to those questions on my most recent blog post at http://knowledge.lapasa.net/?p=893

  • Lapasa D.

    Thank you all for coming. Let's keep in touch via Twitter (@mlapasa) and/or LinkedIn. I blog at http://knowledge.lapasa.net

    If you have a short moment, please rate this session and let me know what I did good and how I could do better so I can become a better speaker.

    I hope you enjoyed the talk and will find the slides + video (http://bit.ly/endpointsGTUG) helpful on getting started with Endpoints. The technology behind Endpoints and Client Libraries really lower the bar for many developers out there like myself. It's an exciting time to take a great idea along with a few clicks here and there, you can have a mobile client with a scalable backend as your starting foundation.

    The presenter was excellent, thoroughly knew his material and provided valuable insight for developers interested in developing mobile apps for Android. I valued the first half of the presentation and his thinking on why android versus HTML5 for mobile. This was a presentation for highly competent developers.

    Any suggestions for parking around BNOTIONS (at 7pm)?

    January 29, 2013

    • Greg C.

      There is a Green P around the corner - intersection of Market & The Esplanade (the end of Market). Or there's street parking all around.

    Everyone,

    If you can't make it out tomorrow night, please make sure to change your RSVP status so others can take your spot. We would really appreciate if you could do us this favor. Thanks & it's going to be an awesome session!

    Man it is cold in this city. 6 days to go. Hope all of you can brave it out and I will promise I will do my best to help you get started on an end-to-end Google Stack. These are exciting times to be an Android dev. Much of the same theory/technique can be applied to building key parts of iOS and HTML5/JS clients.

  • Krishna M.

    Hope I get a chance to be in.. I am on waiting list (:-
