How many engineers does it take to write a development article? Apparently three.
Vishwajith Krishnamurthy, Paneendra Ba, and I joined forces to program a client-server application using Desktop gadgets and Google App Engine.
What we came up with is the Question and Answer server. The server sends random yes-no questions to a Desktop gadget client and keeps track of answers. The client can also submit new questions and see a list of the most answered questions.
Writing the app was a lot of fun and easier than we expected. Please read Desktop gadgets and App Engine to see how we did it, and take some time to try out the application.
