Cloud Foundry & Cloud on a Stick

A session at Stir Trek: Darkness Edition

Friday 17th May, 2013

1:00pm to 2:00pm (EST)

Cloud Foundry is an open PaaS project that has been gaining in popularity. One of the cool Cloud Foundry related tools is called Micro Cloud Foundry (AKA “cloud on a stick”). It allows developers to run a lightweight Cloud Foundry environment on their development machine. This session will give a quick introduction to the Cloud Foundry platform and highlight the benefits (and limitations) of using Micro Cloud Foundry in the development of cloud based applications. The examples will primarily be shown in Java, but Micro Cloud Foundry can be used for Scala, Node.js, and Ruby as well.
