Cloud computing is still one of the hot topics for programmers. We will start this session off with a quick explanation of IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS. From there we will dive right in to getting your code running on the FOSS Platform as a Service from RedHat, OpenShift. With a few simple command line (or eclipse plugin screens) you can have your application code and database running in the cloud. No servers to admin, no server software to configure - just you, your application, and your users. Participants can write their code in Python, Ruby, Node.JS, Java, PHP, or Perl and use either MySQL, Mongo, or PostgreSQL as their datastore. By the end of this session you will have an app with a public url running for you to host your own site.
