Google Developer Groups and Startup Weekend are joining forces to help developers and entrepreneurs become more successful!
We know that during a Startup Weekend event there isn't a lot of time to learn new things. You come in with the tools you have in your belt, and you do the best you can with those. But sometimes those tools aren't enough, which is why we're running this pre-Startup Weekend technical bootcamp
We wiil walk newbies, including designers and folks famiar with basics of web programming through a declaritive mobile tablet website driven by Google App Engine. You will install GAE on your machine. Pull the mobile site from Github. And get a hello world mobile tablet development enviornment working. Easiest to work is Apple Macbooks running OSX and Windows 7 machines (odd ball / older / newer machines unlikely we can help with)
Note Exchange Building - Enter on 2nd Ave @ Marion. Door Closes 6pm - try arrive a few minutes before hand. We will watch the door till 6:15. Arrive later text 650-453-8 one five seven
PS. Google Developer Group regular members who can assist with GAE/ Github are welcome to attend as GDG trainers at no cost. Please let us know you are here to help. THX
