Welcome To The Cloud
Imagine this: You build a whole web application by yourself: the client in Flash or Flex, the server, the database. It's easy.
Keep imagining: You press a button and your application is deployed to The Cloud and scales perfectly no matter how much traffic it gets.
Now stop imagining and do it! With Google App Engine!
In this session Aral Balkan introduces you to Google App Engine, the latest technology solution from Google that heralds the dawn of the Commodity Web and gives us ordinary developers access to The Cloud.
Join Aral as he shares with you his real-world experiences in building the web site for the Singularity web conference, one of the first commercial web applications on Google App Engine.
