Deploying a “Hello World” App to the Free IronFoundry v2 Sandbox

May 9, 2014

0

I’ve been affiliated in some way with Iron Foundry since 2011. Back then, I wrote up an InfoQ.com article about this quirky open source project that added .NET support to the nascent Cloud Foundry PaaS movement. Since then, I was hired by Tier 3 (now CenturyLink Cloud), Cloud Foundry has exploded in popularity and influence, […]

Where the heck do I host my … .NET app?

August 16, 2013

In this short series of posts, I’m looking at the various options for hosting different types of applications. I first looked at Node.js and its diverse ecosystem of providers, and now I’m looking at where to host your .NET application. Regardless of whether you think .NET is passé or not, the reality is that there […]

Where the heck do I host my … Node.js app?

It’s a great time to be a developer. Also a confusing time. We are at a point where there are dozens of legit places that forward-thinking developers can run their apps in the cloud. I’ll be taking a look at a few different types of applications in a brief series of “where the heck do […]

Deploying a Cloud Foundry v2 Application to New Pivotal Cloud Environment

June 19, 2013

Cloud Foundry v2 has been talked about for a while – and being an open-source project, it’s easy to follow along with the roadmaps, docs, and source code – and now it’s being released into the wild. Cloud Foundry is shepherded by Pivotal (spun off from VMware earlier this year) and they have launched a […]

Last week I had the pleasure of visiting New Orleans to present at TechEd North America. My session, Patterns of Cloud Integration, was recorded and is now available on Channel9 for everyone to view. I made the bold (or “reckless”, depending on your perspective) decision to show off as many technology demos as possible so […]

This course, Patterns of Cloud Integration,  takes you through how application and data integration differ when adding cloud endpoints.

Besides this blog, I still write regularly for InfoQ.com as well in as a pair of blogs for my employer, Tier 3. It’s always a fun exercise for me to figure out what content should go where, but I do my best to spread it around. Anyway, in the past couple weeks, I’ve written a […]

Combining Clouds: Accessing Azure Storage from Node.js Application in Cloud Foundry

August 9, 2012

I recently did a presentation (link here) on the topic of platform-as-a-service (PaaS) for my previous employer and thought that I’d share the application I built for the demonstration. While I’ve played with Node.js a bit before, I thought I’d keep digging in and see why @adron won’t shut up about it. I also figured […]

Donnie Berkholz of the analysis firm RedMonk recently posted an article about observing tech trends by monitoring book sales. He saw a resurgence of interest in Java, a slowdown of interest in Microsoft languages (except PowerShell), upward movement in Python, and declining interesting in SQL. While on Twitter the other day, I was looking at […]

IaaS vs. PaaS: Deploying a Web Application

July 6, 2012

My buddy and partner-in-crime, Adron Hall, built a web application that we at Tier 3 plan on using for our internal/external product catalog. He initially deployed the app (ASP.NET + SQL Server DB) to our IaaS fabric, but wanted to compare THAT experience with the steps to deploy to our PaaS (Web Fabric) instead. So, […]
