- Developer Tools

Since Stackato’s launch in May, we've watched with interest as Stackato beta testers mixed and matched their favorite languages, web frameworks and databases to create new applications and migrate existing ones. We're hosting a few on Stackato.com to showcase the diversity of our cloud platform and the ease of deploying to the cloud with Stackato.
My favorite application so far is Candidate Buzz (http://buzz.stackato.com), a Rails 3.0 application that tracks the twitter activity related to the candidates running for the US 2012 Presidential Election.
The result is a web application that is buzz-worthy itself and lots of fun to play with for political junkies. Especially if you are following the US presidential candidates as they blunder through the opening rounds of the campaign. As with all our sample apps, it's open source so you can play with the code behind it as well and create your own buzz site on a topic near and dear to your heart. If you do, let us know!
We've tried to keep up with sample applications for all the combinations, but as it's all about choice and we keep adding new services - it's inevitable that we'll miss one combination - so if you'd like to submit your application as a sample app or tutorial, drop me a line (and a link to github)!
If you'd like to join our Beta Program, fill out the form on http://activestate.com/cloud and we'll send you an invite code!
