Trying out Google App Engine

Yesterday night Google launched App Engine, a highly scalable web application platform, which has the potential to become a game changer. I was lucky to grab a developer account, which is currently tied to several limitations:
  • only 10000 developer accounts available
  • applications have to be coded in Python
  • only three applications per developer
  • bandwidth, storage and CPU usage limitations
  • no road map, no info about future pricing model
On the other hand, it's free for now, you can use the Django open source web framework and template language, you can locally develop and test your app with the cross platform Google App Engine SDK (download size only 2.3 MB - on Mac OS X), you get a powerful administration interface at your Google account and most important, it is extremely easy to get started with, in no time you have a schema-less, database driven helloworld web application deployed on Google's server farm.

The internet users may start their own home business by having business deals with the global entrepreneurs. The different brands of computers have been manufacturing the latest and stylish models of different sizes and shapes for the computing clients. The main features of hosting plans of godaddy are reputable among the potential customers. You may get hosting services of high quality in affordable rates by joining powweb, reliable web host.
