Hey, wanna start a band? A new Chrome Experiment, JAM with Chrome, lets you play music in a web app and jam with others online in real time. You get to pick from 19 different instruments, including drums, guitars, and keyboards. Once you get really good, you can use shortcuts on your (computer) keyboard to play your instrument.



When you’ve had enough fun making music with your friends, you can explore how JAM with Chrome works. Take a look at the tools and technologies that were used to make this app, and for details, read the case study. Then you can decide whether you want to build the next great web app or become a rock star instead.

Speaking of stars, scientists have astonishingly figured out how to learn about light from every star that ever existed. Researchers used the orbiting Fermi Large Area Telescope to look at distant galaxies and measure photons from various places around the universe. This data goes back to the formation of the first stars more than 13 billion years ago.

Finally, back on our own planet, you might have noticed that Google Maps recently added more building footprints to map displays. In case you didn’t count them, over 25 million new building footprints have been added to both desktop and mobile versions of Google Maps. Maybe you’ll see the new footprints while exploring your favorite city this weekend.


On Fridays we detour slightly from our usual posts and publish a Fridaygram, a fun compilation of nerdy stuff to amuse you (and us). And how cool is it that we have orbiting telescopes?

| More

Chromium Blog: Backstage at JAM with Chrome

Earlier today we launched JAM with Chrome. JAM with Chrome is an interactive web application that enables friends in different locations to play music together in the Chrome browser on their computers.



JAM with Chrome was built with the latest browser technologies:
  • Web Audio for high fidelity playback without resorting to lots of pre-recorded audio samples. 
  • WebSockets is used to deliver immediate real-time playback across all the members of the band ensuring they stay in sync and playing from the same tab sheet. 
  • Finally, CSS3, SVG and Canvas provide rich visuals and an immersive experience.
To learn more about how we built this experience, check out “How we made the Audio rock”. This is the first of three HTML5 Rocks articles that describes how the team used Web Audio to deliver an absorbing auditory experience. Stay tuned for more developer stories by following +Google Chrome Developers.

Enjoy playing music with friends at www.jamwithchrome.com and be sure to open Chrome’s developer tools to see what’s going on backstage!

Google App Engine Blog: Get started at no cost with a faster, larger Google Cloud SQL database



You want your application to be fast. Databases play a big role in your overall application speed and end-users’ experience. Reads and writes should execute instantly, even as your user base grows to millions of users, and this requires faster, larger databases



Google App Engine is designed to scale. And now Google Cloud SQL, a MySQL database that lives in Google’s cloud, is scaling up alongside App Engine to meet that demand for faster access to more data. With the features we are launching today, you can now work with bigger, faster MySQL databases in the cloud:






  • More Storage: We’re increasing the available storage on Cloud SQL to 100 GB - ten times more than before.



  • Faster Reads: We’re increasing the maximum size of instances to 16 GB RAM. This amounts to a 4 times increase in the amount of data you can cache.



  • Faster Writes: We’re adding optional asynchronous replication, which gives the write performance of a non-replicated database, but the availability of a replicated one.



  • EU datacenter availability: If you sign up to be a Premier customer, you can choose to store your data and run your Cloud SQL database instance in either our US or EU data centers.



  • Integration with Google Apps Script: We’re making it quick and easy for businesses using Google Apps to use Cloud SQL. Publish and share your data with Google Sheets, add data to your Google Sites pages or create simple Google Forms without worrying about hosting or configuring servers.



Introducing a new trial offer



We’ve received many requests from users for a trial offer to test out Cloud SQL. Today, we’re introducing a 6- month trial offer at no charge, effective until June 1, 2013, and will include one Cloud SQL instance with 0.5 GB of storage. Sign up now to get started.

[Gd] A Virtual Battlefield... with Bugs: Ship Wars @ Google Kirkland

Google Testing Blog: A Virtual Battlefield... with Bugs: Ship Wars @ Google Kirkland

By Anthony F. Voellm (aka Tony the @p3rfguy / G+) and Emily Bedont


On Wednesday, October 24th, while sitting under the Solar System, 30 software engineers from the Greater Seattle area came together at Google Kirkland to partake in the first ever Test Edition of Ship Wars. Ship Wars was created by two Google Waterloo engineers, Garret Kelly and Aaron Kemp, as a 20% project. Yes, 20% time does exist at Google!  The object of the game is to code a spaceship that will outperform all others in a virtual universe - algorithm vs algorithm.

The Kirkland event marked the 7th iteration of the program which was also recently done in NYC. Kirkland however was the first time that the game had been customized to encourage exploratory testing. In the case of "Ship Wars the Test Edition," we planted 4 bugs that the engineering participants were awarded for finding. Well, we ran out of prizes and were quickly reminded that when you put a lot of testing minded people in a room, many bugs will be unveiled! One of the best unveiled bugs was not one of the four planted in the simulator. When turning your ship 90 degrees, the ship actually turned -90 degrees. Oops!

Participants were encouraged to test their spaceship built on their own machine or a Google Chromebook. While the coding was done in the browser, the simulator and web server were run on Google Compute Engine. Throughout the 90 minutes, people challenged other participants to duels. Head-to-head battles took place on Chromebooks at the front of the room. There were many accolades called out but in the end, there could only be one champion who would walk away with a brand spankin’ new Nexus7. Check out our video of the evening’s activities.

Sounds fun, huh? We sure hope our participants, including our first place winner shown receiving the Nexus 7 from Garret, enjoyed the evening! Beyond the battles, our guests were introduced to the revived Google Testing Blog, heard firsthand that GTAC will be back in 2013, learned about testing at Google, and interacted with Googlers in a "Googley" environment. Achievement unlocked.

Special thanks to all the Googlers that supported the event!

[Gd] A web developer’s guide to the latest Chrome Beta

Chromium Blog: A web developer’s guide to the latest Chrome Beta

Today’s Chrome Beta channel release includes a slew of awesome new developer features.

Datalist support in date and time

datalist allows you to specify a list of suggested dates and times for input elements. Of course, users still have the freedom to enter arbitrary dates and times. One use case is helping users choose when their food should be ready for pickup:









MathML

Now you can write mathematical content in MathML and expect it to be consistently beautiful across the web. Special kudos to WebKit volunteer Dave Barton for implementing this on his own accord.




Other new features in this release
  • CSS custom filters have landed behind a flag. They enable sweet cinematic effects like page flipping with just CSS and HTML. You can turn them on with chrome://flags
  • Chromium now parses the autocomplete attribute according to spec. Use it to specify which type of saved user data the browser should use to prefill input elements. Examples are name and street-address
  • A few brand new features landed with a prefix: -webkit-hyphens gives you more control over hyphenation at line breaks, and -webkit-clip-path enables you to clip DOM content to an SVG shape. 
Un-prefixed APIs 

APIs un-prefixed in today’s Beta release include:
Today’s Beta release supports these APIs in both their prefixed and un-prefixed forms. If you’re currently using the prefixed versions, you should switch to the un-prefixed versions after today’s Beta release reaches the Stable channel. At that point the prefixed versions will be deprecated, and future releases may not support them.

Experiments removed in this release 

As the web platform evolves, support for some experiments has been removed. The Blob constructor should now be used instead of the WebKitBlobBuilder API, and the Blob.webkitSlice() method is deprecated in favor of Blob.slice(). We also gathered a lot of valuable data and feedback from our experimental support for Web Intents and decided to disable the feature in today's Beta release.

Stay in the loop 

Visit chromestatus.com for a complete overview of Chrome’s developer features, and circle +Google Chrome Developers for more frequent updates.

We hope you enjoy this Beta release as much as we’ve enjoyed working on it!

[Gd] Domain-wide delegation of authority and OAuth 2.0 Service Accounts

| More

Google Apps Developer Blog: Domain-wide delegation of authority and OAuth 2.0 Service Accounts

Some enterprise applications need to programmatically access their users’ data without any manual authorization on their part. For example, you might want to use the Tasks API to add a task to all of your employees’ Google Tasks lists during the holiday season to remind them of something like, “Come pick up your holiday gift at the front desk!” Or, you might want to run some company-wide analysis of the content of your employees’ Google Drive.

In Google Apps domains, the domain administrator can grant applications domain-wide access to its users' data — this is referred as domain-wide delegation of authority. This basically allows applications to act on behalf of Google Apps domain users when using APIs.

Until recently this technique was mostly performed using 2-Legged OAuth 1.0a (2-LO). However, with the deprecation of the OAuth 1.0 protocol and the resulting programmed shutdown of 2-LO, the recommended authorization mechanism is now to use OAuth 2.0 and service accounts.

Unlike regular Google accounts that belong to an end user, service accounts are owned by your application and therefore identify your application. They can be created in the Google APIs Console and come with their own OAuth 2.0 credentials.

Google Apps domain administrators can delegate domain-wide authority to the service account’s credentials for a set of APIs. This results in allowing the application, by using the service account’s credentials, to act on behalf of the Google Apps domain’s users.

If you’d like to learn more, have a look at the recently published Google Drive SDK documentation on using OAuth 2.0 and service accounts for domain-wide delegation of authority.. These documents provide a step by step process and code samples to help you get started with service accounts.

[Gd] Upgrading to Python 2.7: simple and practical

Google App Engine Blog: Upgrading to Python 2.7: simple and practical



We launched a major improvement to the Python runtime when we introduced support for Python 2.7 last February. It has since proven to be astonishingly popular – just a few months later more than half of all active Python applications on App Engine are using Python 2.7.

What’s so great about Python 2.7? It isn’t just a language update, it also includes a number of features that can help your apps run much more efficiently.

Increase efficiency with concurrent requests. Now a single frontend instance can handle multiple requests at the same time in separate threads. This means App Engine requires fewer frontend instances to handle the traffic, which can lead to significant cost savings.

Rapidly growing mobile gaming company Pocket Gems reduced the cost of running their front-end instances by 78% when they switched to to the Python 2.7 runtime. “We immediately saw a dramatic difference” said engineering director David Underhill  “We only need one third as many instances under Python 2.7 as we did under 2.5 to handle the same traffic”.

Move faster with more native C modules. In Python 2.7 we’ve added more native C modules to App Engine. Core libraries like cPickle run much faster than the equivalent pure Python library available in the Python 2.5 runtime.

Take advantage of popular third-party libraries like PIL and numpy. We’ve greatly expanded the number of third party libraries available for use in App Engine in Python 2.7. So far we’ve added the Python Imaging Library (PIL), lxml, numpy, and several others.

Best of all, upgrading won't require lots of code changes. “It was pretty straightforward,” says Underhill. “We had to be careful, but we ended up needing to change less than 0.4% of the code”.

If you're ready to make the switch, check out our migration guide, find out more about the other great features of the Python 2.7 runtime and get in-depth tips from the App Engine Python team by watching their talk on Migrating to Python 2.7 at Google I/O 2012.
