Seminar about Google’s Developer Products

Wesley Chun, a developer advocate at Google, will be speaking about Google's developer tools which may be useful for faculty/researchers/lecturers as well as university CIO/CTO/IT staff. The  public is generally aware of Google’s consumer products such as search, YouTube, Android, etc., but not Google’s developer products where programming is involved.  University staff who build apps that help the school operate, have web/mobile apps within their course curricula, research in the cloud and/or big data, etc., may be interested in hearing about Google’s APIs (which are typically at low or no cost). Wesley is a  software engineer, not part of sales, marketing, nor business development, so there won't be any "sales pitch."
