Java Apps with Cloud9 on App Engine [Video]

More Information
  • Get setup with a Cloud 9 Account so you can Code in the Cloud!
  • Configure a Cloud 9 Work space for Google App Engine development
  • Integrate the Google Cloud SDK into an App Engine project on Cloud 9
  • Understand what App Engine is and how to set up an app for Cloud deployment
  • Know the details of App Engine’s amazing list of features and services and integrate them into an app
  • Understand App Engine’s Cloud Datastore and use it to persist an app’s data.
  • Use Google Cloud Endpoints to expose an app’s data via a REST API
  • Design and build apps for the Google Cloud that can scale without limits

In this course we'll discover how Cloud9 works, how we can get access to an environment, and how to get a work space setup for Google App Engine/Java development. What’s great about Cloud 9 online IDE is that your environment is running on a virtual machine in the cloud and is fully configured for you by default in under a minute! Everything is provisioned for you in Cloud 9 with proven, compatibility-tested versions of everything, across the board. What’s also nice is you can access your Cloud environment from any browser, any where, on any device and you can share your environment with other developers for code review and/or paired programming. Working with an online IDE versus working with a typical hard-installed client is a similar experience as coding goes. But, when it comes to testing, running a localhost server, networking and some other subtle tasks, things go a bit differently because your environment is in your browser with Cloud 9. We'll learn the ins and outs of coding in the cloud and see just how efficient it can be.

Style and Approach

This course introduces the concepts of a cloud based development environment and an introduction to cloud solutions development and deployment via a well balanced presentation of theory and hands-on practice.
