Programming Google App Engine with Python
Build and Run Scalable Python Apps on Google's Infrastructure
Publisher: O'Reilly Media
Final Release Date: June 2014
Pages: 454

With Early Release ebooks, you get books in their earliest form—the author's raw and unedited content as he or she writes—so you can take advantage of these technologies long before the official release of these titles. You'll also receive updates when significant changes are made, new chapters as they're written, and the final ebook bundle.

Programming Google App Engine with Python 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, using App Engine’s runtime environment for the Python programming language.

The Python runtime environment provides a fast interpreter for the Python language, and includes Python libraries for all of App Engine’s features. It is compatible with many major open source web application frameworks, such as Django and Flask.

If you’re a Java programmer, look for Dan Sanderson’s companion volume Programming Google App Engine with Java.

    Comments about oreilly Programming Google App Engine with Python:

    If you want to work with Google Application Engine and Python, you really need this book.

    Google's documentation is scant to say the least. This work provides the background reference and various examples you need to build your application.
