Title: Introduction to Google App Engine

(The talk is jointly organized by IEEE Singapore Computer Chapter and Google Developer Group Singapore)


Cloud computing is revolutionizing the modern data centers of both enterprises and hosting providers. The cloud computing stack is generally divided into three layers - IaaS, PaaS and SaaS. Most of the products fit into one of these three categories while a few of them cross-over to adjacent layers. In this talk, the speaker will provide an in-depth introduction to Google App Engine from a system architecture and application development perspectives. Google App Engine supports three major languages - Python, Go and Java or other JVM compilable programming languages. This talk will focus on Python programming language.
