April 27th @ 6 - 7:30pm
The Google App Engine team just announced various new features: support for Java as a runtime language, cron support, database import, and access to firewalled data.

Google Spreadsheets API & Gadgets
March 10th @ 5:30pm - 7pm
Google Spreadsheets is more than just a web version of Microsoft Excel - it also has a full read/write Google data (AtomPUB) API, and support for Google Visualization API Gadgets. This talk will introduce both of these ways of enhancing the functionality of spreadsheets - from the simple to the sophisticated.
The codelab will involve making a spreadsheets-based map, and a spreadsheets-powered command-line database.
Google App Engine
March 3rd @ 5:30pm - 7pm
Google App Engine enables you to build web applications on the same scalable systems that power Google applications. The talk will give an overview of the App Engine architecture from a developer's perspective, followed by a live demonstration.
The codelab will involve making a wiki application.
Gears & Offline Apps
Feb. 10th @ 5:30pm - 7pm
GMail recently introduced offline support using the Gears plugin. We'll go over the various modules in Gears, and focus on those that enable offline support.
The codelab will involve taking a website offline (resources and data).
Google Maps API for Flash
Feb. 3rd @ 5:30pm - 7pm,
We'll go over what the new Maps API for Flash can do, and show how to easily integrate it with other libraries for parsing XML/GeoRSS/KML/JSON. We'll also show how to use it with the HTTP version of the Google AJAX libraries. The talk will include an introduction to ActionScript3 (like JS but better!), Flex development, and Flex controls.
The codelab will be making a map that uses all of the features of the API, and the free Flex SDK.
