If I already know basic PHP/MySQL, what else should I learn to use Google App Engine?
The overview and help pages of Google App Engine seem to make too many assumptions about the reader’s tech level. I understand that Python and Java are among the reqs, but I can’t see anything about a MySQL equivalent and how to access it. Is Python a big leap from PHP? I don’t have formal training, and have learned website creation on my own over the years.
