Java in the Google Cloud
Chris Read will give us the potted history of how we arrived at Cloud Computing when so many similar initiatives failed to take off. He will also outline what makes GAE/J different from other Cloud technologies. While getting your first Java application working on GAE/J will probably only take you ten minutes Ola Bini will explain some of the differences you need to take into account between regular Java Web development and development on GAE/J. He will also look at how GAE/J and JRuby allows you combine the power of GAE with the pleasure of Ruby programming.
