Low-Level App Engine

Rafe Kaplan and Guido van Rossum from Google's App Engine team will be on hand to explain what's going on in the App Engine SDK. Since there's little documentation on lower-level SDK programming and operation, this talk should be very useful to hardcore App Engine developers :)

Rafe will give the main talk covering these topics:
- Overview of protobufs.
- Overview of apiproxy
- Async calling
- Call hooks

Guido will be giving an extended lightning talk and we'll be slotting a few more lightning talks to round out the evening.

    Lots of interesting techniques discussed. People who give talks need more coaching on how to give them. They should try to provide a slide that summarizes all the moving parts of the final working result.

    Technically very interesting.

    I realized only when I arrived at the venue that this was a Python developers' meeting. Being a Java developer, I was initially apprehensive of how useful the session would be to me. However, five minutes into Rafe's session I was glad that I stayed since the concepts easily translated for me and the talk turned out to be very informative. I never really used GAE before, but after this session it looks interesting enough for me to try.

    Guido's presentation was interesting and his AppStats app novel. The RPC presentation was too banal - nothing really new, all hard questions had the same answer "this isn't possible".

    Lighting talks were interesting, however nothing surprising.

    some great background on the async API and how to make best use of it, the lightning talks also had a lot of value.
