Google Technologies for Cloud and Web Development (TAU, 2015/2016, Semester A)

This is a workshop focusing on Cloud and Web Development, using primarily - but not exclusively - Google tools and technologies.
These include Android (Google Phone), Chrome and Chrome OS, Google Maps, YouTube API, Google Visualization API, Google AppEngine, Social networks, Google TV and more.

Students will group in teams of 4 students. Each group will come up with a project for the semester.
Project will include designing and developing a live web system.

The course will include several frontal lectures going over the technologies, and the rest of the semester will include project reviews (initial project presentation, design and workplan review, several iterations of project demos and finally a complete project presentation).
Each group will also maintain a web page with project documentation and design documents.
