Appsterdam Guru Sessions are informal, very hands-on workshops to share a technology or a technique between App Makers. Explanation from your peers, open discussion and practical experience are key to these sessions.
At this session, Alessandro Bahgat will share an introduction to Google App Engine - an application engine running in the cloud. In this session we'll learn about basic deployment, building a mobile backend, storage, and the exciting experimental features such as Google Cloud Endpoints and the Channel API.
