Cloud Platform Sessions at Google’s I/O Conference in San Francisco 6/27 through 6/29/2012

Google is holding their annual I/O Conference at San Francisco’s Moscone Hall on 6/27 through 6/29/2012. Here’s the schedule of sessions related to App Engine in the Cloud Platform track:


Rumor has it that Google will announce it’s entry into the Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) cloud provider sweepstakes during Wednesday’s keynote, which will be streamed live starting at 9:30 AM on 6/27/2012.

Check out Barb Darrow’s (@gigabarb) Google App Engine: What developers want at Google I/O post of 6/26/2012 to GigaOm’s Structure blog, which begins:

imageMost of the noise coming out of Google I/O this week will be around the company’s long-percolating infrastructure as a service plan. But many developers who have banked on Google App Engine, the company’s platform as a service, will be looking for other things.

imageFor many, Google App Engine has seemed a sideline for the big search company, a perception some Google execs have labored to correct. Google claimed 150,000 active GAE developers going into the show, a number it will doubtless update.

Barb continues with a nine-point developer wish list.
