Here’s your chance to learn how to build your own Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS). Come check out this session with Krishna and Mark from the OpenShift team and learn how to install, configure and deploy OpenShift Origin – the open source project that powers the OpenShift service – on your laptop.

Attend this informative tutorial and be entered to win a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (10.1)!

In this tutorial you’ll learn about:

  • Command line fundamentals on how to deploy apps
  • How to extend your PaaS by adding support for customized middleware, databases, frameworks, and languages

At the end we’ll get our hack on in a mini-hackfest, complete with cool prizes for the most impressive applications. And everyone who attends this tutorial will be entered to win a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (10.1)!

Bring your laptop because we’ve got everything you need ready to rock on a USB stick with your name on it.
