Google Cloud Platform

Creating and launching with App Engine

Google App Engine is a platform for building scalable web applications and mobile and IoT backends. App Engine provides built-in services and APIs, such as NoSQL datastores, memcache, and a user authentication API, common to most applications.

Participants will be able to follow along as we create and deploy a small App Engine application that displays a short message. The demo that we will run can be found here, and users should come prepared with Java SE 8 Development Kit, Google Cloud SDK, Apache Maven, and Git installed. Basic coding experience is helpful, but not necessary!
