Hope for Perl on App Engine

Posted by on July 23, 2008

Finally, after months of users begging Google to support Perl on Google App Engine (GAE), there looks to be a positive response as Brad explains.

The majority of the work will have to be done by the Perl community, but Google is giving Brad and other Google developers 20% of their time to be devoted to this pet project.

When launched I played with GAE briefly and once I saw the support for Django I took another look. Since I don’t program daily in Python it takes me longer to the most basic things I as spend my time writing pseudo code when unsure and looking up syntax later. I’ve yet to test the sample Django app out on GAE, but hope to someday soon.
