Following on from our popular October event on Cloud technologies is a talk on Google App Engine.
Speaker - Amy Unruh (Google)
Google App Engine is a cloud development platform that makes it easy to write robust web applications, simple to scale them to a global audience, and straightforward to manage them over time.
This talk will give an overview of App Engine, with a focus on some of its newer features, such as Full-Text Search; the Sockets API, which provides outbound socket support (currently in the Trusted Tester phase); Cloud Endpoints, which supports APIs for mobile and web backends (also in Trusted Tester); and traffic splitting, which enables easy A/B testing. The talk will include a look at some code, and a demonstration of some of these features.
