Google App Engine Hosting

A while back, I wrote a blog post about our website going live.  Well, the site has undergone a little bit of a make-over in the past 24 hours.  Our old website was powered by PHP and hosted on some server space that we purchased from our domain registrar.  We have now upgraded the technology that our site is built on to work with Google technologies.  Leveraging the power of Google Web Toolkit, which provides many tools to make the creation of AJAX-enabled, responsive, beautiful websites very nice for Java programmers, we no longer use PHP for our website.  Google App Engine now provides the environment for our website to run in and I couldn't be happier with the robustness and smoothness of this transition.  Our site is now built on a platform that will allow growth and scalability that will grow with us as we continue our rise to the cloud!
