Diving into Google App Engine!

As discussed in a previous post, it's become obvious to me that Google App Engine (GAE) is really the only viable choice, given how I feel about server uptime, config, backups, disaster recovery, etc.

So this is Day One of figuring out this weird, sheltered, somewhat limited environment that is GAE. I won't be posting daily updates, but I will post major progress points. This blog is as much a public information portal as it is a diary for me to remember how this company got itself off the ground (well, let's hope it does!).

And this will definitely prove to be a major piece of the puzzle; the odds of this company's success ride squarely on my ability to hitch ourselves to that silver and blue engine.

Here we go!
