|App Engine engineers talk to developers in the cloud platform sandbox at Google I/O|
- In our overview session, Peter Magnusson and Greg D’Alesandre introduced many of our new features and announced that we have attained 7.5 billion hits per day and are running more than 1 million active applications.
- We announced Google Compute Engine and Alon Levi and Adam Eijdenberg showed how to use App Engine to orchestrate compute instances.
- Cloud SQL began taking open signups and we witnessed an epic battle of the backends in our SQL vs NoSQL session, with Alfred Fuller representing the Datastore and Ken Ashcraft representing Cloud SQL.
- We announced Google Cloud Endpoints and hosted a codelab to give developers early access to our trusted tester program.
- Brian Quinlan covered the finer points of the Python 2.7 runtime.
- And last but not least, Marzia Niccolai, Greg Darke and Troy Trimble gave some great tips for optimizing App Engine applications.
We’ll be taking a short break from our regularly scheduled release cycle in July, but we’ll get back on our usual drumbeat of monthly releases in August.
