Writing portable postgreSQL-backed applications for the Open Cloud

Instant Mapping Applications with PostGIS and Nodejs

Learn how to write PostgreSQL-backed applications that can be automatically cloned, built, monitored, and scaled in a matter of minutes. We'll walk you through all of the steps involved in developing and scaling your own Node.js-powered PostGIS mapping application on the OpenShift cloud hosting platform.

By the end of this talk, you should be able to instantly deploy your own PostgreSQL-backed network applications to your own public or private cloud in a single command.

This talk includes a brief architectural overview of OpenShift, a freely-available Open Source hosting platform.

Folks who want to follow along should bring their own laptop with git, rubygems, and nodejs installed & available.
