There are a few different ways to host applications online. You can spin up your own VPS or container, but those are not easily scalable. Instead there is a nifty service called Google App Enginethat is designed for scalable web applications at a very cheap price. In this episode of The Polyglot Developer Podcast, I have guest speaker Terry Ryanfrom Google to help spread the word on all the things Google App Engine can accomplish and why you should use it.
