Chennai GeekNight Aug 20th 2009,six thirty Post meridian

Heard about the buzz, but didn't know what geeks do at night ??

Well, be sure not to miss the next one on Aug 20th 2009, Friday from 6:30 p.m. onwards at ThoughtWorks Chennai office.

So what is a Geek Night ?

A Geek Night is a forum for discussion and dissemination of ideas, technologies and techniques in the field of software development.
This is also an informal gathering where we pick a hot technology topic and proceed to discuss it and learn from each others experience and perspectives.
The meeting takes about two hours inclusive of eating/drinking (soft drinks only ;)) and heckling the presenters.
Join your fellow techies, geek gods, tech savvy pros, press, and other industry luminaries for an informal gathering at ThoughtWorks Chennai.

Also an opportunity to meet some of your old tech friends, and make some new ones.

Best of all, this event is free!

The topics of this Geek Nights would be

1. "Google App Engine (Java)" by Udayakumar Rayala & Sudhir Jonathan:

This session will focus on the Google App Engine and its differences from other application development platforms. Google App Engine lets you run your web applications on Google's infrastructure. These applications scale as your traffic and data storage needs grow, even though there are no servers to maintain.

Participants will work on a simple application (with a Google Web Toolkit front end), learn why things are done differently on the GAE Datastore / Bigtable and how to use these differences to their advantage. We'll also take a quick look at the other APIs that are bundled with the App Engine (Users / Memcache / Mail / UrlFetch).

2. "Google Wave" by Boojapathy:

A brief Introduction on the wave protocol and Google wave product which was recently released. This session will also help the participants to write a Robot which will communicate with the wave participants.

It sure would be an evening to remember, do make it along with your friends. But before that register your names here (so that we have enough to feed you)
