Remember that next SDG will be next Thursday at Korjaamo. First plan was to have it on Wednesday but we had to reschedule it to Thursday because there is some gig at Korjaamo on Wednesday. Hope to see as many of you there as possible! In the future please RSVP on facebook to get the latest updates.

SDG about Google App Engine

Thanks for everyone who made it to SDG last week! I got very good feedback about the event and I think everyone had a blast. The topic of the next SDG will be Google App Enginge. In May Jani Luostarinen talked about Amazon Web Services and specially about S3 and EC2. Now it is time to have a look what google has to offer in this space. Stefano J. Attardi is a CPO of Zipipop. He has been using Python for web-development since 2001 and has lot of experience about different frameworks. He started using Google App Engine shortly after it was published. Here is how he introduces us to the topic.

Google App Engine

App Engine looks like the dream platform for Python web developers. It makes deployment completely transparent. You press one button and the site goes live, and it scales indefinitely. No syncing and restarting servers, no load balancing, database replication, etc… And it’s free! Too good to be true?

I will cover:

  • The Good Things: deployment, versioning, logs, data viewer, scalability, reliability, costs.
  • The Bad Things (and how to live with them): quotas, profiling, limits on files, subdomains, custom error pages, data viewer, ssl, lock-in.
  • Tips: data modeling, scheduled tasks, using versions, timezones, unit testing.
  • Conclusions: when to use it, when not to use it?
