Google App Engine New York Hack-a-thon

Yesterday, Google App Engine held our first ever hack-a-thon at the Google Office in New York City. We had a great turn out of App Engine developers. Some programmed along with us, building a wiki, and some developers brought along their own ideas and spent the day building some awesome applications.

At the end of the day, a few developers even came up and presented their work:
  • An application that provides 'a simple API for writing and reading small chunks of data from anywhere' :
  • An app that adds photos to the developer's facebook account
  • An Open Source Django utility project:
  • An application that searches for clinical trials based on keywords
  • An application that uses GWT, Maps and Gears to track and map appointments and uses App Engine to keep the client side data synced
  • An app where users can list items for sale and get emails from interested buyers:
Check out the pictures for the event at:

We look forward to seeing you at the San Francisco Hack-a-thon on May 16th
