I’ve been playing with Google App Engine recently. It’s actually pretty cool, to the point that I’m almost ashamed to have ignored it when it was released. I kind of felt like it would be too restrictive with just Python, just their own database and so on.

And you get all the App Engine specific goodness: easy authentication with Google Accounts, free hosting with huge quotas, and most importantly easy scalability on Google’s infrastructure… Having to call your hosting company to add new servers is a pain in the ass (and in the wallet), having to create and delete instances on Amazon S3 is a much better, but not having to think about it at all is just pure joy.
