Google I/O 2013 – Mobile, Web and Cloud – The Triple Crown of Modern Applications

app_engine-256Can we had a better title for our talk? I’m not sure… But the description was along the lines of “…Ready to rock the world with your next application? Odds are you are thinking about mobile, web and the cloud.” So far… so good.

In this session we talked about building a modern mobile web application that takes advantage of the Google Cloud Platform. We touch on the powerful combination of the “mobile web AND the cloud” and in the process we tried to show the power of Google cloud endpoints and modern HTML5 apis. We built a fun little mobile web app “Pictureque” that give you the options to take photos (even on airplanes) and then share them with the world.

Please feel free to play with our demo application:

We passion about technology and the open web platform and we hope that developers will leverage the new APIs and features of Google cloud platform to create amazing experiences. The web platform is moving in a rapid pace and mobile web browsers are supporting a lot of the new HTML5 APIs.

  2. Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this blog.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s difficult to
    get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appearance.
    I must say that you’ve done a awesome job with this.

    Also, the blog loads super fast for me on Chrome.

    Exceptional Blog!
