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. You'll 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, you're ready to get started.
