PaaS: Buildpacks

By Phil Whelan, April 22, 2014

buildpackBuildpacks have become the way to standardize the setup of your stack in a PaaS. In some areas of PaaS, buildpacks may become displaced by Docker images and Dockerfiles, but for now they are the best and most portable option for PaaS and the majority of the PaaS ecosystem is standardizing on them.

Why I joined ActiveState

By John Wetherill, September 20, 2012

During my software development career I've been fortunate to work with dozens of bleeding edge, innovative, and very cool technologies.

I have a keen interest in the tools, processes, languages, frameworks, and systems that improve developer productivity and overall software success. I love elegance, simplicity, and automation, and I'm always on the lookout for developer tools and processes that exhibit these traits.

Using Eclipse STS with Stackato
