Google App Engine represents the first steps in opening the Google server infrastructure to external web applications.

In this talk you will learn about the building blocks and APIs of Google App Engine and learn in what ways it is similar and different to developing LAMP web applications. There may also be a demonstration of constructing a web application for Google App Engine using the first supported language - Python.

Ryan Barrett is the lead engineer on the Google App Engine datastore. He's a systems engineer at heart who happened to get sidetracked into making webapps scale. Before App Engine, Ryan worked on transaction processing, database sharing, distributed and grid computing, and network protocols. Outside of work, Ryan contributes to open source projects.
