The authors, Amy Unruh and Daniel Guermeur are proud to announce the availability of their new book. This book is designed to give developers all the information they need to develop their own GAE+GWT applications, with a particular focus on some of the technologies useful for building scalable social-media-oriented applications. It is an easy-to-follow guide that shows you how to get the most out of combining the powerful features of GAE and GWT.

Wikileaks "history insurance" file on BitTorent

Wikileaks posted what they called "history insurance" file on BitTorent. The file is encrypted and can only be decoded with a special password key. In case 'something happens' to Wikileaks, they will release the decryption key for the world to unlock the file.
  • Tweet from @Wikileaks on Nov 25 2010: Now is a good time to download some "history insurance" - BitTorrent link
Pretty awesome idea to use BitTorrent. BitTorrent downloads are nearly impossible to stop once initiated because it is a peer-to-peer protocol.

According to this informal poll on CBC News site, as this post is being written, 71 thousand people voted, with 81.95% in favor of Wikileaks publishing sensitive information. However, Wikileaks may not be able to uncover and release much more in the future as Julian Assange is now wanted by Interpol, the International Criminal Police organization and soon probably by many more organizations. Here is Julian Interpol page.

Coming soon: Google App Engine Java and GWT Application Development

I am happy to announce the release of my first book I wrote with Amy Unruh. The title is
Google App Engine Java and GWT Application Development. I will be available at Packt Publishing in November. An overview of the book could go like this:
  • Comprehensive coverage of building scalable, modular, and maintainable applications with GWT and GAE using Java
  • Leverage the Google App Engine services and enhance your app functionality and performance
  • Integrate your application with Google Accounts, Facebook, and Twitter

It is a a practical guide with a step-by-step approach that helps you build an application in stages.
