Intrigued by the possibilities of developing web applications in the cloud? With this concise book, you get a quick hands-on introduction to OpenShift, the open source Platform as a Service (PaaS) offering from Red Hat. Youll learn the steps necessary to build, deploy, and host a complete real-world application on OpenShift, without having to read long, detailed explanations of the technologies involved.
Though the book uses Python, application examples in other languages are available on GitHub. If you can build web applications, use a command line, and program in Java, Python, Ruby, Node.js, PHP, or Perl, youre ready to get started.
Dive in and create your first example application with OpenShift
Modify the example with your own code and hot-deploy the changes
Add components such as a database, task scheduling, and monitoring
Use external libraries and dependencies in your application
Delve into networking, persistent storage, and backup options
Explore ways to adapt your team processes to use OpenShift
Learn OpenShift terms, technologies, and commands
Get a list of resources to learn more about OpenShift and PaaS
