A Gentle Introduction to the Google App Engine Python SDK [ID:269]
a series of video-tutorials by Kyran Dale
Google App Engine (GAE) promises to remove some of the hassles from starting and maintaining a web-site. Potentially difficult, technical jobs such as server, database and user-identity management are made considerably easier. Google has chosen Python as its initial application development language, allowing new users to leverage the considerable power and usability of such frameworks as Django or Pylons. This series will introduce the GAE, focussing on the use of its Python SDK and webapp framework. It aims to give good idea of GAE's workflow, assumes limited programming knowledge and, while not an introduction to Python, will try to explain most of the code used in a gentle walkthrough.
