In addition to its own suite of web applications, Google offers a wealth of world-class APIs and tools that can help startups and well-established businesses alike easily (and cheaply!) add significant value to their desktop, mobile, and web-based applications.
In this presentation, I will provide a broad overview of the 70 APIs and developer tools that Google offers, touching on everything from the assortment of Apps, AJAX, and geo APIs (e.g. Calendar, YouTube, Maps, and Search, just to name a few), open web initiatives, mobile and social products including Android and Buzz, development/hosting solutions, and more. Rather than diving deeply into one API in particular -- that comes a bit later -- this session is designed to open your eyes to the bounty of Google APIs available and help inspire you to find creative ways of using them to enhance your present or future business, or even, dare I say it, change the world.
