Announcing Google App Engine Book

by Noah Gift

I thought I would officially announce that Mike Orr and I are writting a book for Manning on Google App Engine.

It is a bit strange to be working on a new book, when the first book I wrote isn't even released yet, but Mike and I plan to finish this book around December08/Jan 09, which is a very aggressive writing schedule. We will be releasing PDF's of each chapter approximately every month until the book is finished. Stay tuned for more.

Noah, cool! I'm sure it will be fun tracking all the new APIs they keep adding ;) App Engine development seems to be moving very quickly.

Kumar/Yes, it is pretty fun to write about. The way we are doing the book is a very open process as well, so we will be posting our outline, and publishing rough material. People can pretty much tell us what they want us to change or highlight as we write the book. Mike Orr is going to add a huge value as well. I think we are going to have a great mixture of WSGI talk sprinkled in too.

Where will we be able to check out the chapter PDFs as they are created. At this point I am hungry for GAE specific instruction and thus am really looking forward to the book.. Thanks!
