Hi, I'm just curious.

Does anybody know what is the server side language Google uses? Is it CGI based?

Yohan,
I know they use both C++ and Java. There may be other languages too.

Google certainly uses Java. Listen to The Java Posse, the famous Java podcast. Two of the presenters are guys who work at Google.

Yeah at least 5 of my Java friends all work for Google, and I had even interviewed there a couple years ago.

They have some internal languages, too. Many Map-Reduce programs are written in Sawzall, named after a really nasty reciprocating power saw that will cut through ... anything. A Sawzall program reads one line of input and produces one line of output. Pretty cool stuff. Read any papers you can find on Map-Reduce and other Google innovations. Lots of amazing things happening there.

I happened to read on Map-Reduce sometime back. Yes, it is a great concept, I agree with you 100% on that.
