comment How can I gather client's data on Google App Engine without using Datastore/Backend Instances too much?
GAE label (sponsored) on Stack Overflow have a huge selection of this kind of question with dozen of answers. @Ruslan, if you want your question to be answered, consider to delete this one, asking it again over there.

IMO this should be moved on StackOverflow where there is a lot of people interested on GAE. The risk to have it here is 1.OP won't get any answer 2.GAE community won't have the chance to read and answer on such a good question.

comment Is it okay to use a language that isn't supported by your company for some tasks?
@Thomas you are right; as said in some comments above, I've ported many scripts in C# (Company supported language)

@Chad eheh nice one but the problem could be another; Python sdk is not part of the default installation of the development machine. In order to install it I've payed a lot of coffees to the right sysadmin ;).

comment is GAE an infrastructure capable of hosting an app used by millions of active users?
Agree with all the points except for the 2.1; Local db pretty sucks.

Believe it or not, after posting this question and receiving a lot of insightful suggestions, I have ported several scripts in C#.

comment Is big-O really that relevant when working in industry?
@Tho I bet you like this argument a lot :); I got your point and I promise that I will study again my old friend Fibonacci. Anyway the "except case" is something you would probably want to optimize just if you really need it.

@Tho if you need to sort you just use the sorting functions provided by your language of choice that I doubt will be a bubble sort. Regarding Fibonacci (Nitpicky, with one b), although Italian like me I hate that guy :) and I really never used his damned number sequence in real life.

comment Is big-O really that relevant when working in industry?
@Tho no :), I'm saying that I have never done proof of Computational Complexity for my programs; but I believe it really depends on what kind of software you are developing. Obviously I don't program with a slice of salame in front of my eyes and I know how to avoid dangerous O(n^2) bad performance.

@MM01 I've studied it in high school and University. Although I recognize it as a building block of a Programmer knowledge, I never used it in any of my job.

comment Have you ever been involved in a BIG Rewrite?
A project that is consolidated during many years; ie not a project that can be rewrited in one month.
