Event: Tokyo 2.0 – August 11

PRESENTATION 1: Google: Programming the Cloud

The Internet has evolved from a collection of hyperlinked documents to a full fledged programming platform. Web service APIs, data feeds, and online computing resources enable you to design, develop, test, and deploy applications without ever installing anything on your local machine. Applications live in the cloud, reachable from anywhere via a simple URL.

Google wants to make the cloud more accessible to everyone by providing API’s, tools, and computing power. This talk gives an overview over Google’s initiatives and shows you what it’s like to program the cloud using Google Data API’s and Google App Engine.

Gregor Hohpe is a software engineer with Google, Inc. Gregor is a widely recognized thought leader on asynchronous messaging architectures and service-oriented architectures. He co-authored the seminal book “Enterprise Integration Patterns” and speaks regularly at technical conferences around the world. Find out more about his work at www.eaipatterns.com.
