Open BlueDragon on Google App Engine - Sample App and Presentation PDF

This is long-delayed after cf.Objective() 2010, but here is a zip of the sample app and the presentation PDF from the presentation Peter and I gave on running CFML applications on Google App Engine.

We also gave this presentation at the CFMeetup a couple of weeks ago (you can watch the recording), and are doing it again for the Mid-Michigan CFUG on Tuesday, June 8, at 7 pm Eastern US time.

To use the sample app create a new Google App Engine project in Eclipse, then copy the unzipped files into that project.

If you need help getting up and running with GAE on Eclipse, check this blog post on the Detroit Area Adobe UG's blog, or check the GAE for Java page. The MMCFUG may also be streaming this meeting live so I'll post again with a URL if that happens.

I didn't add this to the PDF or code before I uploaded them, but both are released under the Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike 3.0 United States License. Creative Commons License

OpenBD is leading the way with GAE. It is very cool. Great presentation. What is the reasoning behind releasing the code and slides under a license? And that license in particular? Thanks

Thanks Mike--basic reason behind releasing things under a license is so people know exactly what they can do with the materials without having to ask me.As for that particular license, I'm all about sharing so that specific CC license makes the most sense to me in most cases. It lets people re-use the materials, rework as they see fit, as long as they give some sort of attribution and don't use anything for commercial purposes.
