Scaling App Engine Applications

A session at Google I/O 2011

Tuesday 10th May, 2011

11:30am to 12:30pm (PST)

During this talk, we’ll discuss how to write highly scalable apps on App Engine. We’ll describe how an app is granted more instances as traffic grows, and the importance of low latency, low memory usage, concurrency, async APIs, load testing, and profiling. We’ll also help you avoid common pitfalls, like entity contention and hot tablets.
