Now playing: developer-created videos

FEB 18, 2009
By Christine Tsai, Google Developer Programs

In the last few months, we've posted videos of developers sharing how they built their applications with Google developer tools and technologies. These included developers building their AJAX front-ends with Google Web Toolkit, writing mobile apps for the Android platform, and scaling their web apps with App Engine. We really enjoyed working with these developers to produce these videos. However, we thought it would be great to allow any developer to create their own video talking about their application and help them share their video with other developers on

Today, we're happy to announce that we're now accepting developer-created videos through this video submission page. If you've got a great app built with Google developer products and want to be considered to be featured on, all you need to do is:
  1. Check out these instructions and guidelines
  2. Create a short video (or videos) based on the above guidelines and upload it to your YouTube account.
  3. Submit your video details on the submission page.
  4. We'll be reviewing submissions regularly and selecting videos to feature on and/or our developer blogs.
You don't need professional equipment or even a studio to produce a good video. Here are 2 examples of videos created by developers. Note that both were shot with hand-held video recording devices and basic video editing software. And as you can see, the "sets" used are just their own workspaces:
