Publisher Comments:

As one of today's cloud computing services, Google App Engine does more than provide access to a large system of servers. It also offers you a simple model for building applications that scale automatically to accommodate millions of users. With Programming Google App Engine, you'll get expert practical guidance that will help you make the best use of this powerful platform. Google engineer Dan Sanderson shows you how to design your applications for scalability, including ways to perform common development tasks using App Engine's APIs and scalable services.

You'll learn about App Engine's application server architecture, runtime environments, and scalable datastore for distributing data, as well as techniques for optimizing your application. App Engine offers nearly unlimited computing power, and this book provides clear and concise instructions for getting the most from it right from the source.

  • Discover the differences between traditional web development and development with App Engine
  • Learn the details of App Engine's Python and Java runtime environments
  • Understand how App Engine handles web requests and executes application code
  • Learn how to use App Engine's scalable datastore, including queries and indexes, transactions, and data modeling
  • Use task queues to parallelize and distribute work across the infrastructure
  • Deploy and manage applications with ease

Synopsis:

Written by the developers of Google App Engine, this book explains how to build web applications to take advantage of Google's immense network infrastructure. "Programming Google App Engine" teaches intermediate and advanced web developers how to build infinitely scalable applications with App Engine. Like Amazon's EC2, App Engine lets companies "rent" cloud computing resources. This book describes ways to perform common development tasks using App Engine APIs and services, and explains what kinds of web applications are best suited for App Engine and what kinds are not.

Synopsis:

Build and Run Scalable Web Apps on Google's Infrastructure

Synopsis:

Written by a member of the Google team, this book explains how to build infinitely scalable web applications using Google App Engine and either the Python or Java runtime environment.
