Deploying Python Apps (and maybe even PHP) in the Cloud with MongoDB & OpenShift

Mark Atwood

OpenShift PaaS Evangelist at Red Hat

December 9, 2011

Drop in on this technical talk with OpenShift Evangelist and all-around Open Source guy Mark Atwood. In this talk you'll be able to follow along on your own laptop as we deploy a Twitter-clone Python app built using the Bottle web framework with a MongoDB back-end. Nothing complicated, nothing convoluted. We'll use Git to push code and OpenShift to host our app and MongoDB. We'll take a crack at how to preform snapshots (backups and restores) and effectively tail MongoDB logs while we are at it. If you don't have one, maybe even two MongoDB apps running on the cloud by the end of the talk, without having to pull out your credit card, you're doing it wrong. MongoDB on OpenShift is Big and it's FREE!
