Building Scalable PHP Applications Using Google’s App Engine


Comments are closed.

Most of the presentation was about running asynchronous tasks, which was well explained, but the rest seemed to me a bit chaotic. I didn't get clearly why the Google App Engine is so awesome. Yes, it scales, but so do most of the clouds out there :).

I got a good overview of Google App Engine. Always a bit harder to present a productu which is very new and have not gone so for on the roadmap.

Less adequate speaker interesting well explained topic

Very interesting talk. Especially on how Google Apps engine differs on other hosting/cloud solutions.

Would love to see a bit less about TaskQueue and more about CloudSQL and more. But still a great talk, extremely well prepared.

Good overview. One suggestion, during talk try to use less 'emmm', 'ummm'. It can be hard to get rid of such thing, but not impossible. ;)

Interesting talk, I also liked that it mostly focused on one aspect (task queues) which was explained in quite some depth - instead of just giving a broad (but shallow) overview about everything.
Apart from that, as Endijs already said: The "emmm"s were quite a bit too frequent for my taste as well, something that could be improved.

Good topic, but a bit chaotic and not very well delivered. A bit too much about task queue and not pure scalability.

The information on Task Queues was in-depth, however I think some more information about what App Engine offers as a whole and why you would choose it over other Cloud solutions would've been helpful.
