Software Development & Deployment with Google App Engine

I have been developing applications for 5 years and worked on wide range of programming languages and platforms. If we exclude my undergraduate studies (like; tiny applications working on embedded devices or cross platform compiled iphone apps … etc.) briefly my experience on software development;

So, far I have dealt with many programming languages, platforms and most of them have painful development/deployment processes except one.  Google App Engine is the only platform that I have never had problems with software deployment.  I doesn’t matter which box you have (mac, win, linux ..etc)  for development, deployed application works as it in your local. You don’t have to worry about changes about model, app engine handles it smoothly. It is amazing. I have never seen such a thing before. Even I had problems with php but not with app engine. That’s why Google like companies must exits, they are the real innovators.


Microsoft IE Loses the Battle Against Firefox and Safari

Check out w3school browser stats and see how Microsoft IE is losing market share against Firefox and Safari.  So, why are they losing the browser war?  Remember the old saying “First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.”

Now let’s quick look at the new IE 8, following sites are not supported by IE 8:

  1. microsoft.com
  2. google.com
  3. yahoo.com
  4. wikipedia.org
  5. flickr.com
  6. wordpress.com
  7. adobe.com
  8. facebook.com
  9. apple.com
  10. youtube.com

A quick look for the new Safari 4; Safari 4 Released, Claimed “30 Times Faster Than IE7”

First they ignored us now Open Source is winning the battles against Microsoft.


What Is Singularity?

Do you hear the word “Singularity” so much these days? I do. So, what is it? Singularity may refer following concepts; mathematics, complex analysis, algebraic geometry, science, television … etc. I’m interested in technological singularity which aims to develop machines smarter than human intelligence.

The word Singularity sounds like a something mystic and the concept behind it reminds me the movie The Matrix. I don’t believe it’d happen as long as I’m alive. Despite its probability to happen there are huge investments on this project like The Singularity Institute and Nasa – Google companion Singularity University.

Assume that somehow singularity succeeds and smarter machines are developed. Now the question is “what happens when these smart machines seek intelligent systems?”


Testing Zemanta

I finally installed Zemanta plugin for my wordpress (personal blog). I’ll be testing it for a few days and see if it helps for enhancing my content. For now, it works well and I liked the auto tagging feature.
