Google Cloud Playground - A Browser-Based Environment For Trying Google Cloud Platform

Sign up for Google Apps with the following promo codes:

Google Cloud Playground is meant to give developers a chance to try some sample code and see how actual production APIs will behave, or to just share some code with colleagues without them having to install your whole development environment.

To get started, you simply head for the Cloud Playground or, if you just want to see it at work, head for Google’s getting started documentation, which now features green Run/Modify buttons that allow you to run any of the sample code on these sites. The Cloud Playground itself features numerous sample apps and also gives you the option to clone other open source App Engine template projects written in Python from GitHub.

The project itself is open source and consists of a basic browser-based code editor and mimic, a Python App Engine app that serves as the development server.
