Google Appengine, the easy cloud

Google App Engine allows developers to leverage Google's cloud infrastructure (Bigtable, Memcache, XMPP, Tasks, Cron) to run their web applications. App Engine was first released for Python, then for Java. But in the past few years there has been many efforts to make scripting languages work on the Java VM, and these community efforts have made a lot of progress to allow you leverage App Engine in other languages: JRuby, Quercus PHP, Groovy.
I'll cover Appengine APIs, including recent features like XMPP and Task Queues, tools integration, limitations, how to run other JVM based languages used in the wild (JRuby, Quercus PHP, Groovy), and show cool apps that have been developed with appengine.
