A platform is more than the sum of its component parts. You can read about it or hear about it, but to really learn what makes up a platform you have to try it out for yourself, play with the parts, and discover what you can build.
With that in mind, we started a project called Au-to-do: a full sample application implementing a ticket tracker, built using Google APIs, that developers can download and dissect.
Au-to-do currently uses the following APIs and technologies:
- Google App Engine (with the Python runtime, Datastore API, and Task Queues API)
- Google Cloud Storage
- Google Prediction API
- Google Tasks API
- OAuth 2.0
By the way, if you’re wondering how to pronounce Au-to-do, you can say "auto-do" or "ought-to-do" — either is correct.
