TOPIC ABSTRACT
Redhat Openshift Hands-On Session

Tired of waiting weeks to get a server or spinning up and configuring your virtual servers. Come learn about how PaaS can make you into a happier and more productive coder. We will start by teaching you the meaning behind some acronyms you see thrown around  - IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS. Next we turn to PaaS and talk about why it is a developer's dream come true. From there we will use Red Hat's Open Source PaaS, OpenShift, to teach you how easy it is to get started with a Python (or Node or Java) web application in the cloud. We will show you how you can do your entire development lifecycle (from application creation to code and deploy) in with the command line. This will be a very hands on session - our goal is to have you go home comfortable with deploying your own applications. If time permits we may also show a little bit of working with Spatial MongoDB (or PostgreSQL) on OpenShift.  Come in skeptical but with your laptop and leave with a smile and some working code.
