Google App Engine

Recently I learned about Google’s App Engine and I must admit I am extremely impressed.  I am already have heard of at least two start ups that are deploying on it.

What it promises in terms of scalability and the amount it gives for free in terms of storage and bandwidth is impressive.  It is too bad it has not announced yet the terms when you begin to go over these limits.

I watched this tutorial on developing and deploying an application on Google App Engine.

My initial impressions were:

  • Python, hmmm…
  • Django, interesting…
  • this is not nearly as easy as Ruby on Rails

Still once has to believe this is going to help Python and its web framework, Django, in terms of momentum.
