If you have any questions at all about the service, feel free to ask me anything.
Also, why the long delay? Is it because of the switch from C to Go in 1.5?
...and it gives me:
That's not true. We continue to invest heavily in App Engine as a platform.

They're not the same product, and in this case they serve different points in the space with different underlying requirements. App Engine Standard's cost structure on the backend just hasn't changed nearly as much as compute engine's lately where it's a much more direct: oh look Haswell released, more cores per host at similar dollars yields less $$/core.
Disclosure: I work on Cloud (Compute Engine mostly) and care a lot about our prices.
What does this even mean.

You have to have some measure of competency to be able to operate at Snapchat scale. You really do.

You really have no idea what you're talking about.

I find their app to be very poorly designed, I wouldn't be surprised if their back end is also poorly designed.
>You have to have some measure of competency to be able to operate at Snapchat scale. You really do.
Meh, they are big but they aren't that big. There are about 3000 bigger sites out there and not that many are built on GAE so that's a strange way to measure the competency of GAE or snap chat for that matter.
You can run at scale and do it poorly, Enterprises do it all the time. Size and scale aren't really a good indication of quality.
If you want to make a case for appengine, do that, but don't tell me that 'these guys vetted it, and they are kinda big, so it must be good' There's a lot more big sites that don't use app engine. Size doesn't equal competency.
