Cloud Foundry is the first open platform as a service (PaaS) project supporting multiple frameworks, multiple cloud providers, and multiple application services all on a cloud-scale platform. Cloud Foundry allows developers to focus on writing applications instead of worrying about infrastructure or needing to configure application and database servers.
This talk will focus on Cloud Foundry's rich ecosystem of application frameworks (including Node.js), data services, and cloud providers. Showing the ease of deploying apps, consuming services in the cloud, and moving your application between different clouds.
We all know that modules are in our future. ECMAScript.Next modules (aka "Harmony" modules) will start appearing in browsers in early 2012. Too bad Harmony modules won't be universal 2021 when IE9 will finally be dead.
No need to wait! AMD and CommonJS Modules/1.1 are fully supported in a wide variety of environments already. But why are there two standards? Which one should I pick?
We'll take a quick look at each of the formats, compare and contrast their features, discuss the benefits of using modules now, and finally draw some conclusions.
