Please come to our next joint event with DC Area JBOSS User Group (http://www.meetup.com/DC-JBug/) for great technical discussion and 'deployment' of OpenShift (https://openshift.redhat.com/app/) PaaS from the RedHat team.
When: May 10, 6:30 PM
Speaker: Grant Shipley
It's finally here! OpenShift is built on open source and here's your chance to learn how to take the code and projects that power OpenShift to build your own PaaS. Come check out this session with Mark from the OpenShift team to learn where to download, how to install, and how to configure and deploy onto your local machine.
We'll cover the fundamentals of how to deploy apps onto your PaaS to make it do something useful for you. We'll cover ways to extend your PaaS by adding support for customized middleware, databases, frameworks and languages. Bring your laptop because we got everything you need ready to rock on a USB stick with your name on it.
If you are an open source enthusiast, want to learn how to contribute back to the project or just curious about the code that powers OpenShift, then this is the talk for you!
