What’s Going on in the Columbus Startup Community
Central Ohio Cloud Computing Group – Heroku and Cloud Foundry
When: Monday, Aug 8, 6:00pm
Where: TechColumbus 1275 Kinnear Road Columbus Ohio
Cloud platforms promise a way to make your applications available to any user on the Internet, scalable to any size demand, affordable to any budget, compatible across all platforms, and accessible to any programmer able to build a “Hello, World” app. Those are all typically true, but some are mutually exclusive. This discussion will talk about each of these aspects in the context of Heroku (with a brief nod to CloudFoundry). We will cover setting up an application, add-ons, the command-line, available technology stacks, cost structures, environments, and lots of other fun stuff. Although Heroku supports node.js and Clojure (recently announced), we will be using Ruby for the evening.
