Google App Engine on the Road

More members of the App Engine team are hitting the road in the next two weeks. If you'll be at any of the following events we'd love to meet and talk shop! Here's where you can find us:

Wednesday March 18th
5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
New York City

Pete Koomen will be at CommunityOne East participating in the Closing Panel Discussion – "Enterprises and the Cloud".

Wednesday March 25th
9:00 am - 12:20 pm

Joe Gregorio will be teaching a half-day tutorial at PyCon 2009 entitled An Introduction to Google App Engine. From the session description: "Google App Engine allows you to build scalable web applications and host them on Google hardware. This hands on tutorial will walk you through the steps of building a basic web application, from setting up the SDK through to using the major APIs that App Engine provides."

Thursday March 26th
1:30 pm - 2:30 pm

Joe Gregorio will be giving the presentation "Under the Covers of the App Engine Datastore" on March 26th at the Emerging Technologies for the Enterprise conference in Philadephia. From the session description: "This talk walks through the internals of the App Engine Datastore, how data is stored, how indexes are built, and how queries are executed. We then discuss how those architectural decisions make the App Engine datastore scalable and finally go into how those constraints affect how you design your applications schema so your application can take full advantage of that scalability."

Wednesday April 1st
Time TBD
New York City

For the second time in two weeks we return to New York City where Joe Gregorio will be giving the same "Under the Covers of the App Engine Datastore" talk at the Cloud Computing Expo in New York City.
