What makes Python a preferred choice as App. Engine?

I visited Google App.Engine site and found that it is offering either Java or Python interpreter. I am also seeing that Python is gaining more popularity in the social networking programming and as an Application Server.

What is making Python a preferred choice in these areas?

Well for starters, there’s a lot more google-created libraries for Python on app-engine than there are Java libraries :slight_smile:

Python is about 10x less code to write than Java :stuck_out_tongue:
