At the Google Cloud Next event in San Francisco, the Google announced that its App Engine will now support any programming language. “What we are launching is an open generation of App Engine,” said Sam Ramji, VP of product management at Google.

In the past, it was somewhat difficult to remove an application from the Google Cloud Platform, but the changes will make it easier for enterprises to avoid lock-in to a particular cloud computing engine. The new version of App Engine includes integrated support for Java 8, Ruby, Go, Python 2/3, C#, PHP 5/7 and Node.js, but also allows programmers to use their own language runtimes, frameworks and libraries, as well as to bring binaries to App Engine in a Docker container.
