Cover image for User Accounts and memcache in Google AppEngine

Book description

When you move your data and applications into the cloud, handling users and tuning your memory usage are no longer a few clicks in a GUI. In this O'Reilly Breakdown, you'll learn how Google AppEngine handles users, and master the complexities of interacting with Google account holders. You'll also learn how to move from application-specific logins to the Google authentication system. Once you've got your users under control, you'll also tune caching to really enhance your application's performance.

The experts in the O'Reilly Breakdown live video series not only break down the concepts of difficult and complex subjects, they also demonstrate practical implementation and use. Each episode features an experienced programmer, developer, or software designer working on real-world challenges, ranging from iPad user interface design and multi-tasking on Android phones to caching in cloud-based applications.
