We will build a RESTful web service backed by MongoDB in Scala, Java, Ruby, and Node.js and deploy each instance to CloudFoundry. We will go over how to build a cloud manifest, how to keep our database credentials and application configuration outside of our code by using user-provided services, and go over what it takes to build a 12 Factor application in the cloud. This presentation will be heavy on code and light on slides!
