Developing WordPress on OpenShift
So you’re building a WordPress site for a customer, and you’re ready to show it off to your client. Maybe the customer needs to begin inputting content while development is still going on. Being able to quickly spin up a staging environment helps to keep your project moving. I’d like to introduce you to a great product, made by Red Hat, called OpenShift, that makes developing for clients so much easier. Openshift is a PaaS (Platform as a Service) that makes it simple to develop customer sites, offering full SSH access, version control using Git, both a command line and GUI interface, and it is free for the first 3 gears (applications). In this presentation, we will cover everything you need to know about how OpenShift can help you improve your development lifecycle.
