Google DevFest Singapore 2010

I just attend my first Google event last friday , the Google DevFest Singapore. This is my second geek event this year , I am looking forward for this , I will blog about the different between this 2 geek event on my next post, this post will be just summarize the DevFest only.

The event kick start with Google Maps API by Daniels Lee , the poor guy was coughing during the presentation.

After Google Maps API presentation and 10 min break , the next HTML5 presentation done by Jeremy Orlow.

Interesting HTML5 presentation end with no FAQ session due to time constraint, follow up is a 2-Person presentation by Timothy Jordan (@timothyjordan) and Bob Aman (@sporkmonger) on Google Buzz API.

  • Google Buzz API Presentation – not just about Google Buzz , Timothy actually talk about how the social work , oauth and activity streams too.

After the buzz buzz , lunch time started with some boring lunch box, there is this guy approach me when I queue up for Starbuck, we just have a short chat on what we think about the event so far, but I m a bit shy on these kind of social thing , after my coffee ready and I just make a move first, sorry pal.

The presentation continue once every one come back from back from lunch, it start with Jeremy Orlow again on Google Chrome Developer Tools, I would say this is really an eye opener and I really understand why firebug never migrate over to Chrome, because Chrome itself already contain a very powerful debugging tools , the only thing I wish will be edit the style sheet and you can see it on the fly ( now every changes you need to enter ). I can’t really find the presentation for this but I think the pdf on Google IO is quite good enough

Patrick Chanezon (@chanezon) is the last presenter, He cover lot of topics in his presentation which share on slideshare. These are the topics which cover by Patrick.

  • Google Apps – the one allow you use Gmail and other google service for your own domain.
  • Google Apps Marketplace – a market place that allow developer selling their application/service that tie to Google service

2 company pitched when Patrick talking about Google Apps Marketplace.

Patrick continue his presentation on some other new Google product.

The last part of the day is the Code Lab session
