To: SDForum EMTECH-SIG <sdforum_emergingtech at yahoogroups.com>

 We are very excited to have Dick Wall, Developer Advocate from
Google, coming to talk to us in May about Google App Engine!

Google App Engine puts your applications on Google's infrastructure.
Just write your application, and you can scale and grow it without
having to manage your own server or data center. In this session we
will explore the different concepts that are important to that
infrastructure for your own applications, and how to build and
maintain your application using the Google App Engine SDK and
management tools. The environment consists of a dynamic web server,
persistent storage with queries, sorting and transactions, automatic
scaling and load balancing, email and authentication services. The
first language supported in Google App Engine is Python.
