App Engine: Qwik Start - Go

GSP070

Google Cloud Self-Paced Labs

Overview

App Engine allows developers to focus on doing what they do best, writing code. The App Engine standard environment is based on container instances running on Google's infrastructure. Containers are preconfigured with one of several available runtimes (Java 7, Java 8, Python 2.7, Go and PHP). Each runtime also includes libraries that support App Engine Standard APIs. For many applications, the standard environment runtimes and libraries might be all you need.

App Engine offers you a choice between two Go language environments. Both environments have the same code-centric developer workflow, scale quickly and efficiently to handle increasing demand, and enable you to use Google’s proven serving technology to build your web, mobile and IoT applications quickly and with minimal operational overhead. While the two environments have a lot in common, they differ in a few important ways.

The App Engine standard environment makes it easy to build and deploy an application that runs reliably under heavy load and with large amounts of data. Your application runs within its own secure, reliable environment that is independent of the hardware, operating system, or physical location of the server. It supports Go 1.6, 1.8, and 1.9.

The App Engine flexible environment is based on Google Compute Engine and automatically scales your app up and down while balancing the load. It supports Go 1.10, 1.9, 1.8.

This hands-on lab shows you how to create a small App Engine application that displays a short message.
