Google Apps Developer Blog - for developers, by developers

Monday, February 8, 2010 | 11:00 AM

Welcome to the Google Apps Developer Blog. Today we're excited to introduce the Google Apps Developer Blog, for developers interested in building applications that leverage Google Apps. In this blog we'll cover topics of interest to Google Apps developers building applications on top of Google Apps, integrating with them or utilizing the APIs. Examples of some of the topics we'll cover and resources we'll provide include:

  • code snippets and samples
  • reviews of customer integration and deployment cases
  • interviews with developers on best practices for developing in Apps
  • voting on most-requested developer extensions in Apps
  • discussion of OAuth roadmap
  • references to OpenID
  • smart ways to do logging (and analysis/reporting) in AppEngine, etc.
  • Storing JSON in AppEngine
Watch this blog and subscribe to our feed for announcements of developer events, DevFests, Google I/O updates, product announcements, links to other Google developer related content and case studies on actual integration, implementation and deployments.

Also, don't forget to register for Google I/O, which is May 19-20, 2010 in San Francisco. Google I/O will feature 80 sessions, more than 3,000 developers, and over 100 demonstrations from developers showcasing their technologies. You'll be able to talk shop with engineers building the next generation of web, mobile, and enterprise applications. Last year's I/O sold out before the start of the conference, so we encourage you to sign up soon.

We'll do our best to bring you the most relevant developer content right here on this blog, and you can also check out these excellent sources of information for Google developers:

Finally, we want your feedback! Ask questions, suggest topics, and even submit your own stories for possible inclusion in this blog. Contact me at GADBeditor at google if you have a story for submission, or story suggestion. Comments will be enabled on this blog, and we hope you'll join the discussion.
