Google Developer Day London: GData APIs - Part 1

Posted in Companies, Conferences on June 08, 2007

Google's mission is to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful. The Google Data protocol helps accomplish this by providing a common mechanism for accessing a wide range of Google services.

The Google Data protocol embraces the Atom syndication format and the Atom Publishing Protocol (APP) and uses the extension mechanisms adopted by these standards to expose services like Picasa, Google Calendar, Google Spreadsheets, Google Base, Blogger and more.

This talk will give an overview of the protocol and dive into some example applications. Previous knowledge of HTTP and XML is beneficial.

Lane works with the Google developer community to help them build implementations on top of the Google Data APIs — specializing in the Calendar data API and account authentication mechanisms. Before joining Google, Lane worked with the Air Force and NASA developing communications and flight control software.
