User Experiences demands are pushing modern web apps to a more distributed architecture. A pattern many developers have used is using a MVC framework on the client and communicate to the server with REST. Google App Engine’s easy to build, easy to manage environment makes it ideal for REST APIs for Web backends. At Google IO 2012, we made it much easier to build REST APIs on App Engine with Cloud Endpoints.
In getting ready for IO, Ido and I thought we’d build a modern web application using Cloud Endpoints. We decided on a topic that would be relevant to both App Engine and the general web developer community, something we both have some interest in and something generally useful…. a Beer rating and review web application.
