Let's Play! in the Cloud: Developing Java Web Apps on OpenShift

On demand

Want a web-based shared to-do list for your team? Or a mobile-friendly shared shopping list for your household? Build your own—and get it running in the cloud.

This technical webinar shows you how to go from code to cloud in minutes with the open source Play framework and OpenShift, Red Hat's free, auto-scaling Platform-as-a-Service for Play and a host of other languages.

What's the Play framework?

  • Uses Java and Scala to simplify web application building
  • Focuses on developer productivity
  • Targets RESTful architectures

Learn by example

Sebastián and Jorge cover Play! fundamentals and show you how to build your own application by walking step-by-step through a sample address book app. Next, Mark shows you how to build a real-world useful shared-list app.
