As the summer heat descends on the Northern Hemisphere we thought we’d release our newest App Engine version with some changes that are sure to keep you playing around in the cool, air-conditioned indoors (hey, you don’t want your computer to overheat, right?).
Lastly, we have some exciting news related to the experimental Go runtime. While it still remains experimental, starting with 1.5.2, all HRD apps will have access to the Go runtime in production.
As always, there are also some small features and bug fixes, the full list of which can be found in our release notes (Python, Java). We look forward to your feedback and questions in our forum.
You may have heard the news that 2011 is Google’s biggest hiring year yet. And the App Engine team is looking for a few great Software Engineers to join us in San Francisco to code, collaborate on innovative ideas for platform computing, and get burritos with us every Friday.
We think we have some of the best and most enthusiastic developers out there-- so we thought we’d ask you to come work with us. The App Engine team needs talented developers to help build the platform by developing the features on our road map and issue tracker, as well as that amazing feature idea you have that will revolutionize App Engine for our users.
If you are a backend engineer who is experienced with C++ or Java, lives and breathes distributed systems, and is obsessed with scalability, please visit our jobs website to submit your resume along with a cover letter describing your experience with App Engine. We’ll be in touch if we think your experience matches our open positions.
Thanks for continuing to help make App Engine a great platform!
