Google App Engine and Cloud Computing Overview - by Wesley Chun

Google+ Event 

Schedule:

6:00 - 6:55 Networking and Light Dinner

6:55 - 7:05 Announcements

7:05 - 7:15 Lightning Talk/Demo of GDG[x] Project Frisbee by Joshua Woodward

7:15 - 9:00 Wesley Chun - Google App Engine and Cloud Computing Overview

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Audience/Who should attend:

This talk is for Beginner/Intermediates that are a developer, consultant, technical or IT manager, VP, entrepreneur, director, CIO/CTO, or investor interested in a high-level overview of cloud computing and where Google App Engine fits into this ecosphere. Attendees may be evaluating cloud technologies and doing due diligence to determine which solution(s) are right for their organizations. Knowledge of Web development and client-server computing may be helpful but are not required.

Abstract:

Google App Engine is an exciting development and cloud-hosting platform that lets you build & deploy web (and non-web) applications on Google's scalable high-traffic infrastructure using familiar development environments. App Engine apps execute on servers in Google data centers and use the same technology that powers Google's websites for speed, scalability, and reliability. Applications are easy to maintain and scale as your traffic and resource needs grow (or shrink). With App Engine, there is no need to think about virtual machine images, operating systems, databases, Web servers, licensing, software updates/patches, load-balancing, or other hardware requirements. You just upload your code to Google: using our simple deployment system will have your app up and ready to serve the world generally in less than 60 seconds!

  • wesley c.

    It's not in the description and is not the main topic, but I will also be introducing other products in the Google Cloud Platform as well as other Google-related services & open source projects.

    The slide deck I will be using is developed by Google for use at upcoming GDG DevFests, and this is a sample (my) delivery of this talk. It may be useful for those who are planning or giving the same talk at their local DevFest. Irregardless, I look forward to meeting or reconnecting with you all next week!
