Google App Engine and Python

Quick steps to develop with Google App Engine:

- download the SDK
- this will place a Google App Launcher shortcut on your desktop
- click on it
- File > Create New Application and choose the directory (a subdirectory with the app name will be created there)
- Edit and change the name of the main *.py file you'll be using (say,
- create your file and save it in the subdirectory created 2 steps ago
- select the app in the Google App Launcher main window and click Run
- open a browser: http://localhost:808x (this is the default value, check in your application settings as defined in Google App Launcher)
- then you have to deploy it to your applications in your Google profile

More, later, this is just a quick vade mecum.
