Instantly Run An App in the Cloud 2
|Title||Instantly Run An App in the Cloud Using OpenShift Part 2|
|Overview||Students need to know what Cloud Computing really means, how it fits into the wider computing context, and how they can use an open source cloud alternative to quickly host coding platforms for them to toy around in. This activity sets out to do all of this as a walkthrough learn-as-you-go tutorial.|
What is the rational for this activity? This second portion of the cloud app activity goes a little deeper and focuses on de-facto technologies like ssh / shell access and git / github. Students will now take their new-found knowledge of the cloud paradigm and start to understand how it can link to a more technically flexible solution set. They can now customize their apps via editing and pushing code via a git publication process.
