Data Persistence in Google App Engine

Video description

Every application needs data, and cloud-based applications in particular have unique challenges associated with data persistence. In this O'Reilly Breakdown, cloud programmer Dan Pilone takes you through the ins and outs of storing data in the cloud. You'll learn how to interact with Google's data service, caching infrastructure, and even get a handle on indices and searching.

Through building a cloud-based application, you'll learn the services that Google provides and how to access each. You'll also persist data, read that data, investigate the problems of working with cloud-based remote data, and see how caching affects your user's experiences with your application.

The experts in the O'Reilly Breakdown live video series not only break down the concepts of difficult and complex subjects, they also demonstrate practical implementation and use. Each episode features an experienced programmer, developer, or software designer working on real-world challenges, ranging from iPad user interface design and multi-tasking on Android phones to caching in cloud-based applications.
