Using Cloud Foundry to Create the #ContributingCode Competition App

by July 11, 2012

A situational application generally has a short lifespan and sidesteps formal requirements so that it can be developed quickly with a narrow focus. Cloud-based application development and deployment platforms lend themselves very well for such applications. This blog post will demonstrate a situational application that I developed and guide you to use cloud platform services to aid in your web development.
This app was built to register participants for a VMware Service Foundation pilot project called #ContributingCode, a program that involves an intense coding competition for students that is set to begin July 13, 2012.
