OpenShift Tutorial

  • 2 hour tutorial or workshop

This tutorial will walk participants through the process of creating their own hosted mapping application using open source code, open data, and the open source OpenShift Platform as Service. The application will be a version of the demo app shown in the Cloud Craft for Spatial Cadets presentation, but it is not a requirement to have attended the talk. PHP and Python versions of the template app will be available; participants wishing to create an app in another language are welcome to do so, but will need to adapt the application code.
