Master the full range of development features provided by Google App Engine to build and run scalable web applications in Python
Google App Engine is a key component of the Google Cloud Platform and one of the most comprehensive cloud services. Together with Python, the first programming language ever supported by the platform, Google App Engine favors rapid development, significantly contributing to the success of your projects.
This book will guide you through the Google Cloud Platform starting from the basics all the way through successfully designing, building, and running modern and scalable web applications in Python with Google App Engine. From authentication to data storage, and from asynchronous jobs to server push techniques, you will learn how to use services such as datastore, cloud storage, Cloud SQL, task queues and channels in a Python application based on web frameworks such as Webapp2 and Django. As the topics in this book are covered in a step-by-step fashion, you will get to grips with the information quickly and easily.
