From Seo Wiki - Search Engine Optimization and Programming Languages
Google Code is Google's site for developer tools, APIs and technical resources. The site contains documentation on using Google developer tools and APIs - including discussion groups and blogs for developers using Google's developer products.
The site also features a variety of developer products and tools built specifically for developers. Google App Engine is a hosting service for web apps. Project Hosting gives users version control for open source code. Google Web Toolkit allows developers to create Ajax applications in the Java programming language.
Google offers a variety of APIs, mostly web APIs for web developers. The APIs are based on popular Google consumer products, including Google Maps, Google Earth, AdSense, Adwords, Google Apps and YouTube.
Google Data APIs
The Google Data APIs allow programmers to create applications that read and write data from Google services. Currently, these include APIs for Google Apps, Google Analytics, Blogger, Google Base, Google Book Search, Google Calendar, Google Code Search, Google Spreadsheets, Google Notebook, and Picasa Web Albums.
The AdSense and AdWords APIs, based on the SOAP data exchange standard, allow developers to integrate their own applications with these Google services. The AdSense API allows owners of web sites and blogs to manage AdSense sign-up, content and reporting, while the AdWords API gives AdWords customers programmatic access to their AdWords accounts and campaigns.
Developer Tools & Open source projects
Gears is beta software offered by Google to enable off-line access to services that normally only work on-line. It installs a database engine, based on SQLite, on the client system to cache the data locally. Gears-enabled pages use data from this local cache rather than from the online service. Using Gears, a web application may periodically synchronize the data in the local cache with the online service. If a network connection is not available, the synchronization is deferred until a network connection is established. Thus Gears enables web applications to work even though access to the network service is not present.
Google Web Toolkit
Google Code runs a project hosting service that provides revision control offering both Subversion and Mercurial (transparently implemented using BigTable as storage), an issue tracker, a wiki for documentation, and a file download feature. The service is available and free for all Open Source projects that are licensed under one of nine licenses (Apache, Artistic, BSD, GPLv2, GPLv3, LGPL, MIT, MPL and EPL). The site limits the number of projects one person can have to 25. Additionally, there is a limit as to the number of projects that may be created in one day.
Accessing Google Code website and its hosted contents is banned from countries on the United States Office of Foreign Assets Control sanction list, including Cuba, Iran, Libya, North Korea, Sudan and Syria.
Google Developer Events
Google I/O is Google's largest developer event. This year it was held in Moscone Center in San Francisco.
Google Summer of Code is a mentoring program to find students for open source projects. In 2007, the program received nearly 6,200 applications.
Google Code Jam is an international programming competition.
