As always, any and all feedback is welcome in the Google Group!
Join fellow Google App Engine developers in Shanghai for Google App Engine Camp on November 22nd starting at 1pm. We'll be meeting at Google's Shanghai office, where you can come to discuss and develop your App Engine projects. We'll kick off the event with a round of lightening talks, after which you can meet other developers, and even get started coding!
Food and coffee will be provided, so just bring your ideas and your laptop. Full details and registration form can be found on the website.
Starting later this year the App Engine team will be getting out of the office for a series of developer visits.
We want to come to your home or office (or wherever you use App Engine), and look over your shoulder so that we can learn first-hand about how you use our product. Our goal is to see how App Engine fits into your development process. We want to learn what's working for you and what's frustrating you.
The initial round of visits will be to developers in the San Francisco Bay Area, and then in the new year we will visit developers elsewhere in the US. If you would like to participate, please take a few minutes to complete this sign-up form. That link also contains information about exactly what's involved in the field visit. Developers who we end up visiting will receive $150 compensation. For questions and updates check the App Engine discussion group.
We look forward to meeting as many of you as possible!
