Google App Engine - Mass GTUG Meeting (January 12th 2010, 6 pm)

The next Mass GTUG meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, January 12th at 6 pm.

Meeting Agenda
  1. Introduction
  2. Google App Engine (Python version)
  3. Open Discussion

It is not an introduction to web programming or a Google Apps session. It is assumed you know server-side web development — perhaps ASP, JSP or PHP. Please note, this session will be based on Python. Still, it is not a programming language session — the emphasis will be on learning the available APIs which are common between Java and Python on GAE. The idea is to familiarize everyone with the basic App Engine APIs.

We will create a toy bank and be able to transfer "money" between accounts.

Meeting Location Details

We are meeting on MIT campus in Cambridge. The conference room is in the building W92 at 304 Vassar St, Cambridge and the building belongs to MIT IS&T.

The building (red brick front building) is near Hyatt hotel (Memorial Dr) and MIT Police station. From Kendall "T" station, it is a quite a bit of walk. There is a free shuttle called "TECH SHUTTLE" which stops next to MIT COOP and goes around the campus and drops you right in front of W92 building. The stop is Amesbury St/W92. There are other shuttles which go to other parts of campus but only TECH SHUTTLE comes to this building. See TECH SHUTTLE schedule and real time tracker.

Metered Parking/W92 Parking is available around the building (free after 6 PM). If you prefer to walk from Kendall, walk on Main st towards Vassar st, take a left onto Vassar st and keep walking (15 min walk)  until you cross the MIT police station on right. The red brick building is on left side of the police station.
