Google seeks apps demo videos

Developers invited to make submissions of apps they have made based on Google's technology

Google is asking developers to send videos of applications based on the company's technologies, which could be featured on the code.google.com site or Google developer blogs.

The company, said Christine Tsai, product marketing manager for Google Developer Programs, has been posting videos of developers sharing how they built such applications as mobile systems for the Android platform or AJAX front ends with Google Web Toolkit or how they scaled Web applications using the Google App Engine cloud platform.

"We really enjoyed working with these developers to produce these videos. However, we thought it would be great to allow any developer to create their own video talking about their application and help them share their video with other developers on code.google.com," Tsai said in a blog post on Wednesday morning.

Google will consider videos sent via a video submission page. Videos, which can be no longer than five minutes, must adhere to YouTube terms of service. The company is encouraging use of visuals and screen recordings so developers can see an application in action.

Google is showing sample videos, including the Mibbit Web chat application built with JavaScript and Google APIs, and Giftag, an online "wish list" application developed on Google App Engine.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
