Getting Started with Cloud Foundry for Data Science

Summary

Cloud Foundry is an open source Platform-as-a-Service that can be used to easily deliver data driven applications.

Description

Cloud Foundry is an open source Platform-as-a- Service that can be used to easily deliver data driven applications. In this tutorial we will learn how to push an application to a real CF instance, how to connect to managed data services like Redis and PostgreSQL and how to deploy PyData and R projects using community buildpacks.

By the end of the tutorial participants will know how to _ deploy your first app using Cloud Foundry, _ connect to databases and other data services, _ use PyData packages with a Heroku-style buildpack, _ find public and private Cloud Foundry installation options.

Participants will need to register on a public Cloud Foundry instance to follow along with the tutorial. Detailed instructions will be provided for Pivotal Web Services which offers a 60 day free trial. Other options include IBM Bluemix and HP Helion Development Platform.

Participants should be comfortable on the command line and download and install the CF CLI tools before the tutorial.
