Google I/O playlist, day 7: Data pipelines with Google App Engine

This is the seventh in a series of posts providing a day-by-day playlist to help break up the Google I/O session videos - specifically the App Engine ones - into manageable chunks for those that haven't seen them.

Today's session is Brett Slatkin's talk on Data Pipelines with Google App Engine. This is a really fascinating talk, and it's a must-watch for anyone wanting to do advanced, high-throughput processing on App Engine. Brett describes in detail, with working code, a couple of high level concepts that make it possible to do 'eventually consistent' processing on App Engine, with one of the goals being Materialized Views.

The examples are in Python, but the talk will be useful for Java developers too - it's the concepts that are really important here.
