What a couple of weeks it's been! We completed the first two stops of the Google DevFest tour in Beijing and Shanghai with a total of 150 developers in attendance.
There were some great presentations on OpenSocial, the Google Maps API, and Google App Engine. These presentations were given collaboratively between our local product engineers in China and engineers that flew out from the Googleplex in Mountain View for two weeks. The presentations
can be found here:
There were also two presentations given entirely in Chinese, so for those that can read them, here those are:
**The Maps talk was translated on the fly, so there is no presentation in Chinese for that.
At our event in Beijing we also saw an announcement from 51.com, a very large social network in China, about their support for OpenSocial v0.8. 51.com hosted their own developer day the following week at their office in Shanghai. Pretty exciting stuff for OpenSocial!
Pictures from our DevFest event in Shanghai are here. The DevFest event in Beijing pictures are here.
Thanks to everyone who came out!
