Introduction to OpenShift for application developers

Tired of waiting weeks to get a server spinning up and configuring your virtual servers? Come see how Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) can make you a happier and more productive coder. This will be a hands-on session. The goal is to leave you comfortable deploying your own apps. After starting with a Python + MongoDB application on OpenShift by Red Hat, we’ll deploy some Java code.

You’ll learn:

  • The meaning behind some acronyms you see thrown around: IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS.
  • Why PaaS is a developer’s dream come true.
  • How easy it is to get started with a Python (or Node or Java) web application in the cloud using Red Hat’s open source PaaS, OpenShift.
  • How you can complete all development life cycle tasks (from application creation to coding and deploying) from the command line.

Come in skeptical but with your laptop, and leave with a smile and working code.
