Do you wonder how App Engine orchestrates hundreds of instances so smoothly? Can you imagine how Datastore queries and transactions work behind the scenes? Do you want to know the magic of how App Engine experts dramatically reduce traffic costs using edge caching? We’ve just published a series of great App Engine training videos to help you better understand our platform. These seven voice-over technical videos provide insight for both newbies as well as seasoned App Engine developers. The videos delve into each major App Engine component’s operation and how a developer can best utilize them.
Each video runs for half an hour or less. We recommend you follow the videos in sequence if you are new to App Engine, or you can pick and choose if you’re already familiar with the platform. Throughout the year, we intend to publish codelabs to complement the voice-over training videos, not only for App Engine, but for Google Cloud Storage, Google Cloud SQL, Google BigQuery, and Google Compute Engine as well. So stay tuned for updates! -Posted by Gary Downing, Cloud Platform Solutions Technical Training Manager
