Please join us on July 31st for a Google App Engine Hack-a-thon in the
* Learn about Google App Engine
The events will include training on the major features of Google App
Engine, including data modeling, the App Engine APIs, some aspects of
Django, and how to mashup App Engine with other web services. Google
Engineers and Product Managers will be on hand to help and to answer
questions throughout the day.
* Build With Us, or Build Your Own
Throughout the day, we will be building a complete App Engine
application, and sharing the code with you so you can code along with
us. If, on the other hand, you already have a great idea for what to
build, bring that idea along. Even better, bring along anything you
can prepare ahead of time (sketches, designs, web page mock ups, etc.)
and use the time and information provided to develop your idea into a
working application, then share it with the world.
At the end of the day, we'll invite you to share your App Engine
applications with the group.
* What Do I Need?
We will provide facilities, power, food and refreshments and experts
to help you learn to use Google App Engine and write your application.
Just bring your laptops, ideas and enthusiasm to complete the mix.
