How to set up Stackato on OpenStack

By Ho Ming Li, June 10, 2013

This post presents a picto-guide with some commentary on how to get a Stackato PaaS up and running quickly and easily on OpenStack.

Stackato is delivered as a Virtual Appliance, meaning it is delivered as a ready-built VM image for you to import to your hypervisor and get going right away. You don't have to build the whole PaaS from scratch, and you don't need any specialized build tools.

Protoduction: An agile workflow enabled by PaaS

By Troy Topnik, May 30, 2013

Here is a word I recently saw on the #stackato IRC channel: protoduction

It's not in any dictionary that I'm aware of, but it's generally construed to be "a prototype that ends up in production" or some sort of hacky solution that ends up being deployed in a hurry. The word was used in reference to a proof-of-concept system that had been opened up to developers and was now hosting production applications a little... ahead of schedule.

A Small Simple App

A Small Simple App

This is a fictional story, based in reality.

It sounds as if the idea I have will work. Feedback has been good, and I did not get slammed on Hacker News. There's a nice flow of people signing up on the landing page, so I think I should be able to get a few people kicking the tires as soon as I have something live.

Polyglot

By John Wetherill, November 9, 2012

A polyglot is defined as one who is fluent in multiple languages. This is similar to how a multilinguist is ... uh ...fluent in multiple languages. (OK, who invented two words for the same concept?)

Well, it turns out polyglot applies not only to spoken languages, but to programming languages as well. Thus in the software world, a polyglot application is one built on multiple languages. The term also applies to developer tools that can manipulate such apps.
