This month Wesley Chun will be flying in from the Google office in New York to discuss the latest in App Engine and a little on Google's High Performance Computing services. App Engine currently supports Python, Java, and Go so programmers from any of these languages can get up to speed quickly. There will be plenty of code examples and a knowledgeable speaker to answer all your App Engine questions.
The presentation will outline the architecture of App Engine, what it's major components are, introduce its features and APIs, discuss the service and how it works (including information on the free quotas), and also present some information about current users and usage, including integration with Google Apps, and finally, we'll give a quick introduction to other cloud related products and services from Google.
Wesley is the author of Prentice Hall's bestselling "Core Python" series (corepython.com), the "Python Fundamentals" companion video lectures and co-author of "Python Web Development with Django" (withdjango.com). In addition to being a Developer Advocate at Google, he previously worked at Yahoo! and helped create Yahoo!Mail using Python. He holds degrees in Computer Science, Mathematics, and Music from the University of California.
