Share SproutCore with Google App Engine and Chrome by Charles Jolley

Event Details

With a new generation of high-powered browsers, like Chrome, it is possible to deliver native applications on the web that look and feel like the desktop. SproutCore is a new JavaScript framework that makes it easy to harness this power in your own software. It currently powers the desktop-like web applications at Apple's MobileMe service among many others.

During this talk, we will show you how to use the Cocoa-inspired SproutCore framework along with Google App Engine and Chrome to deliver a desktop-like experience on the web.

Lightning Demos

During the networking hour, we invite our members that develop applications using Google Technology to do brief demos of 5 minutes or less. Please contact Van Riper to indicate your interest to demo your stuff. Time permitting, we will include as many demos as possible before the main event.

Charles Jolley is the creator of SproutCore, co-author of an upcoming SproutCore book, and the chief architect behind some of the largest applications currently using the framework.
