Programming with the OSS Cloud Stack

Location: D139-140 Level: Intermediate

The “cloud stack” development environment—one that lets you not just build cloud-based app for the web, but actually build them while on the Web—is a reality. Using open source, standardized software and management tools, it’s now possible to code, test, debug, and deploy web based solutions; all from a modern browser.

Tools featured in this talk include Cloud9 IDE, Node.js, CouchDB, Github, and Heroku. Attendees will see a complete project built from start to finish to deployment all using free open source software. Along the way, the notion of how a collaborative, social, online environment affects the way software is built and deployed is also explored.

Ready to join the world of Cloud Stack development? This talk is for you.
