Hope for Perl on App Engine


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.
