Cloud Foundry is the open platform as a service project initiated by VMware. It supports multiple developer frameworks including Rails, Sinatra, Spring and Node.js. Using Cloud Foundry, Rails developers are able to deploy and scale applications in seconds while leveraging a variety of application services like MongoDB, MySQL, Redis, RabbitMQ and more. Cloud Foundry applications are not locked into any particular cloud (private or public). At this session, Derek Collison, CTO and Chief Architect of Cloud Foundry will provide a detailed overview of the Cloud Foundry architecture, developer APIs and how Rails developers can use the system.

This session is sponsored by VMware
