Next up was Andrew Wachira who gave a detailed description on how to use Google Sites and AppEngine, in that single session we learnt how to make simple Forms and collect data in SpreadSheet and CSV format.
We also learnt how to install and develop applications using Python and Google OS Databases.
We discovered that google basically offers huge space and bandwidth for you to develop your web applications.
Jeremiah Kamau showed us how to integrate and manipulate the Google Maps Engine and also announced that Google maps .co.ke for Kenya had been launched.
All in all the GTUG meeting was succesful with many questions and discussions on how Kenyans can succesfully use the google cloud.
