My main project during my 11 week summer at Google was to create a globally scalable version of the internal events calendar (or Ecal). Everyday, events open to Googlers happen on Google campuses worldwide, and they needed a way to view those events in one place, categorized in an intuitive way. I designed and developed a full featured web application that took care of this need.
A Job That Needed Doing
The application was built entirely from scratch using Python and the Django web application framework, running on Google App Engine (with a hefty sprinkling of JQuery).
