My first speaking engagement/training in 2013 is coming up and the venue could not have been better.
Google Developer Group (GDG), Goa have been courteous enough to extend me an opportunity to conduct a workshop on Google App Engine. The App Engine Workshop is being organized in association with the upcoming BITS Pilani (Goa Campus) Quark 2013 Technical Festival.
The event schedule is spread across 2 days on January 12 and 13. On January 12, we will have a hands-on workshop to take the participants through Google App Engine. And then on Sunday, January 13 comes the 12-hour hackathon, where participants will hack away on their App Engine application. Great prizes are on offer for the winners and it should be exciting to see what the participants come up with.
I have the material wrapped up for the Google App Engine workshop on Saturday and I am excited to present it. The only prerequisites expected from the participants is basic knowledge of Java. The rest of the stuff including the App Engine ecosystem, the services and code will be explained in the workshop. The icing on the cake will the hands-on exercises and by the end of the workshop, participants will have an application running in the Google cloud. Not bad for a Saturday afternoon of work, eh ?
If you are in and around Goa this weekend on Jan 12/13 and have an interest in learning about App Engine, hop on and join the fun. Check out the Registration page.
Thanks once again to Smarth Behl, Head of GDG Goa for the invite. It will be great to catch up with the organizers of GDG and GAUG Goa, who have been terrific torchbearers for the community.
If you cannot make it in person, don’t feel bad. I have made the entire presentation, hands-on exercises and code available at a Github site : https://github.com/rominirani/Google-AppEngine-Workshop . So go through it at your own pace, follow it step by step and you could be writing Cloud Application powered by Google App Engine in no time. In case of any queries, just drop me an email and I will be glad to help.
