Next Steps

Now that you have completed this tutorial, you have learned how to build and deploy a simple Go App Engine application, and how to use the Google+ API.

The following are some ideas for extending the application that can help you further develop your App Engine skills:

  • Allow a user to search for arbitrary images (not just "gopher").

  • Search the Google+ stream in the background by using the Task Queue or the Cron service. Store the result in the Datastore, and use memcache to cache the most recent image URL.

  • Combine it with a different API: google-api-go-client comes with support for 20+ APIs.
