Backend as a Service. With a BaaS provider such as Parse, Google App Engine, or Azure Mobile Services, you don't even have to worry about provisioning resources on the cloud. Instead you just import an API wrapper into your mobile app and configure a few cookie cutter options on the BaaS provider's web site.

These providers make cloud-enabling your product incredibly simple. The tradeoff of using one versus the more traditional ‘cloud' is that costs rise exponentially …

Good story of how nearby.lk moved from Google App Engine to EC2 , nodejs, and mongodb. Migration decision based on: ease of development, performance and cost. GAE suffers from slow database operatations, costly over provisioning of instances, slow startup times lead to timeouts, low 1MB memcache size limit, bulk loads and exports of data a nightmare, search is slow. Like about nodejs: one programming language on client and server, portability, fast. Like from GAE: could see everything …

…architect our app with Heroku in mind, but it's not nearly as severe as hosting on Google App Engine. There's always been a reasonable solution for what we want to do.

Buying the Domain

Naming our website and acquiring the domain was probably the hardest thing to accomplish. We stumbled on Upworthy very late in the process. It was preceded by weeks of head scratching and hair pulling because the domain name industry is completely broken. It's been reported that if Obama

He thought about generating bytecode. However, that doesn't work on Google App Engine. Furthermore, it was too implementation specific.

Using the ast module is more limited. However, it's easier to debug. Furthermore, it does not segfault the interpreter (at least starting in Python 2.7).

Using pure source code generation always works. However, it's very limited, and it's hard to debug without hacks.

The ast module is much better.

Jinja is way faster than Django…
