There are so many things outside of the code that developers need to worry about – high availability, resource usage, scaling, and so on. Salvation lies in the cloud, my friend. Platform as a Services, like the open source CloudFoundry, free developers from worrying about such mundane things are resources and deployments and let them focus on what they love, writing code.
In this session, you’ll learn how to architect your systems for life in a PaaS, and how to deploy and operate your systems in the cloud. Using CloudFoundry as our example PaaS, we’ll demonstrate several deployment scenarios, several capabilities you get for free like application restarts, horizontal auto-scaling, and load balancing, and show how to deploy new versions of your software with zero downtime.
