Google App Engine comes with sweets and cakes

April 20, 2008

Google App Engine is like a treat to Python developers which comes with sweets and cakes. From sweets and cakes I mean like Google App Engine for Google Apps (I hope you know about Google Apps). The availability of SDK so it can be ported to other platforms like Amazon EC2 appdrop.com is now offering to host Google App Engine applications. And none the less support for Google App Engine has been added to Google Data Python Libaray.

All of these are available for your webapps if they are either built on Google Apps Engine SDK or Django web framework. Google App Engine being a buzz word now a days has brought attention of developers specially Python developers from all around the world to Google.

Many of them like me still waiting for their trun to be invited to sign up for Google App Engine Account. Hope our turn will come soon. Google will also be adding support for other languages like PHP and others, and that would be a turning point for Google App Engine. In my view as soon as the support for other popular languages will be available in Google App Engine, it will become the first choice of web application development framework.
