Google App Engine

April 8, 2008

Hmmm, the Google App Engine is all over the “blogosphere” today. I first read about Google’s new service yesterday, so I promptly signed up to be a beta tester. Today, I was invited to join 10,0000 other programmers to give the App Engine a trial run.

The App Engine is being greeted with mixed feelings by the developer community. Personally, after reading the documentation and API, I can’t think of a good reason to use it. It has some benefits over other application hosting options, but it sacrifices flexibility in return.

Search Google for plenty of buzz.
