Brett Slatkin This talk will cover App Engine's new Pipeline API, which connects together complex, time-consuming work (including MapReduces and human actions) in a distributed system. The API transforms Python into an asynchronous language for describing data dependencies in a novel way. We will discuss how the API works, how it achieves parallelism, and how to reuse its design and code outside of App Engine.
