Getting Started with Google App Engine and Datastore

Spinning up a dedicated virtual machine for a small app can be cost-prohibitive. This session offers an introduction to Google's App Engine solution that charges purely based on service demand, making it a fantastic platform for apps that are just getting started, or have traffic that will be difficult to gauge. A live example will be worked using the Java client libraries and will cover the core concepts behind app engine development with Maven, working with the datastore service to persist application data, workarounds for objects not white-listed by app engine, common web concepts in app engine such as thread-safety, sessions, and cookies, how to code for app engine while avoiding vendor lock-in with Google, and helpful resources including app engine documentation and JAVA DOCS for reference. A solid grasp of OOP in any language, along with knowledge of HTTP, will help attendees consume this session.
