Developers are getting excited about Cloud Foundry, the multi-vendor Platform as a Service (PaaS). Cloud Foundry eliminates a lot of the more boring aspects of our job - no more installing middleware, sorting out databases, and banging heads against complex deployments. This leaves us with more time for the fun stuff - writing code and getting stuff out to users fast.
With Cloud Foundry, an application can easily be deployed to a variety of managed clouds and scaled up and down as required. This talk will demonstrate how to get started with Cloud Foundry by live-coding an application (with a front-end, a back-end, and even a middle-bit) and then live-deploying it to the web.
