Learn about Google App Engine
The events will include training on the major features of Google App Engine, including data modeling, the App Engine APIs, some aspects of Django, and how to mashup App Engine with other web services. Google Engineers will be on hand to help and to answer questions throughout the day.
For a better idea of what goes on at our hack-a-thons, see our previous posts about the New York, San Francisco, and Chicago hack-a-thons.
Build With Us, or Build Your Own
Throughout the day, we will be building a complete App Engine application, and sharing the code with you so you can code along with us. If, on the other hand, you already have a great idea for what to build, bring that idea along. If you already have a great idea for what to build, bring it along and go for it! Even better, prepare sketches, designs, web page mock-ups, etc. ahead of time, and use the hack-a-thon to develop your idea into a working application that you can share with the world.
At the end of the day, we'll invite you to share your App Engine applications with the group.
