This is a follow-up, hands-on workshop to our first OpenShift Tutorial workshop held on July 26th. We’re excited to have Red Hat’s Steve Citron-Pousty back to talk to us again!

“In this workshop we are going to be developing a web application on the Platform as a Service (Paas) from Red Hat called Openshift. Using a PaaS let’s you focus on building applications not managing servers. We are going to build a simple web application in Python using the Flask web framework and we are going to talk to MongoDB, a document-based NoSQL database.”

** What are the $10 donation tickets?

To thank you for donating to CodeChix Bay Area, CodeChix Bay Area will give you a free O’Reilly book! When you donate $10 to attend this workshop, you’ll be able to pick a book from our collection when you arrive.

We’re raising funds to apply for non-profit status and for 2013 CodeChix T-shirts. Applying for non-profit status is a hugely expensive process (on the order of $5K-$7K) and we would love to have any help we can towards this effort. And, we’d also love to get CodeChix T-shirts to distribute, too. Please help us by signing up, coming to our event and donating towards these items.

We are greatly appreciative of your support and hope to continue bringing you great speakers and events.

Please feel free to forward this along to any interested women and men. Thanks for showing your support for our speaker and CodeChix Bay Area by signing up/registering today!
