I would really really appreciate your sharing this discount with the group. This PaaS is written in Ruby and is mostly used by Ruby developers, so I think it would be of great interest to your group.
Register now for this special October 19 Dev Day! 75% off!
This hands-on Developer Day will ramp you up from hello world to building sample apps on Cloud Foundry's free hosted and open source Private PaaS options (written in Ruby by the way). Cloud Foundry (from VMware) provides an environment that comes preinstalled with services such as Tomcat, Nodejs, RabbitMQ, and four databases (MongoDB, MySQL, Postgres, and Redis), allowing web app developers to get developing right away with only a minutes of set up. It supports Ruby on Rails, Node.js, Spring, Scala, and many other languages and platforms. Most of our users are Ruby developers.
Meet our experts who will guide you through our Cloud Foundry vision, getting started, Cloud Foundry internals and architecture, setting up your own private PaaS using Cloud Foundry Bosh, and additional hackathon.
