Google had a handful of sessions about developing for Google Drive at Google I/O last week. Luckily for those who were unable to attend the event, Google has posted many of the sessions online for you to view at your leisure.
The first one is about what’s new in the Google Drive SDK. The description explains:
In this talk, we will introduce a number of major new features and platforms to the Google Drive SDK. We will discuss what we feel is a revolution in the way developers write collaborative applications. We will also announce a new API to make managing files in Google Drive even easier for developers, replacing some legacy APIs in the process.
This one is about what is possible with the SDK.
“Partners of Google Drive have already implemented a number of extremely compelling applications that use Google Drive for file storage,” Google says. “Implementing on the Google Drive SDK enables developers to distribute the cost of storage, while also removing the pain of reimplementing file management. In this session, we’ll take a look at a number of existing Google Drive SDK implementations with popular apps.”
Finally, a “deep dive” into the next version of the Google Drive API. This one covers best practices, how to properly sync files, how to manage sharing, and how to make apps faster and more efficient.
