On Friday, May 16th, we had our second Google App Engine Hack-a-thon at the Google offices in San Francisco. For 12 hours, developers coded, talked with the Google App Engine engineering team and each other, and filled up on Google snacks.
At the end of the day we had some great results:
- The beginnings of a distributed datastore helper library
- http://cp.appspot.com - An online shopping cart integrated with Google Checkout
- http://gawsh.appspot.com/ an application that helps generate workers compensation forms
- And lastly, http://fat-burn-challenge
.appspot.com/an application to keep track of your running progress (for those of us who had too many snacks :)
Check out some pictures of the Hack-a-thon:
If you still haven't got a chance to meet the App Engine developers and build some apps with other App Engine developers, we will be holding some codelab sessions at Google I/O, our annual developer event on May 28th and 29th.
