TPDP Episode #10: All About The Google App Engine

TwitterFacebookRedditLinkedInHacker News

There are a few different ways to host applications online. You can spin up your own VPS or container, but those are not easily scalable. Instead there is a nifty service called Google App Engine that is designed for scalable web applications at a very cheap price. In this episode of The Polyglot Developer Podcast, I have guest speaker Terry Ryan from Google to help spread the word on all the things Google App Engine can accomplish and why you should use it.

This episode has been published to all the major podcasting networks including iTunes and Pocket Casts, but it can be heard below as well, if you prefer.

I encourage you to listen to this episode if you’re contemplating a hosting solution for your next web application.

If you’re interested in being a guest on a future episode, reach out to me on Twitter and we can see if you’d be a good fit.
