Yesterday, at Red Hat Summit, Red Hat announced OpenShift.io. OpenShift.io is the next generation OpenShift platform, based on OpenShift 3, for building and running applications in the cloud. It gives you complete control of your application’s lifecycle, from build to production– regardless of deploying from source or running a pre-built container.

Today’s announcement of Red Hat OpenShift.io was followed by a full day of developer toolset Summit sessions. These were presented by the OpenShift.io product development team and covered some truly amazing OpenShift.io features. While there are too many features to cover in a single blog post, these were my top 7 items.

Developers often ask themselves these questions:
- Is this the right dependency to add for the feature that I need to build?
- What open source libraries and/or packages are others using?
- Is this a stable and secure version?
- Does this package’s license conform to my organization’s policies?
These are important questions that developers need to answer when choosing open source software components for their project. It is nearly impossible to deliver a modern application without depending on a number of software packages. It’s hard to justify spending time on the decision process since it doesn’t seem to add any visible business value. However, each component included is a potential liability if it has bugs or security vulnerabilities.

Installing software is a drag
Getting a team set up to work on a new software project can be quite time consuming. You have some great ideas for the code you want to write, but you can’t get down to writing it until you have a development environment for yourself and the rest of the team.
First, you have to select, download, and install tools. There are usually some settings that need to be configured for each one. Then, every other developer on the team needs to do the same thing, and you have to explain it or write up instructions. This is even more challenging if some of your workers are remote or in different time zones.
The more software you install, the more burdensome it is to keep it all up to date. As you update software, you need to make sure the rest of the team keep their environments updated to avoid consistency problems. After adding new versions of software to your environment, any instructions or scripts you wrote for onboarding new team members become out of date.

Digital transformation is about evolving into a technology business to compete in the digital economy. Businesses can’t transform without relying on the developer to implement the transformation strategy and deliver value. Unfortunately, as developers look to adopt new approaches that let them deliver business value more quickly, they find it challenging to get started in a timely fashion.

Wouldn’t it be great if you could try out a new product within minutes, or even seconds? As a developer your time is limited, and the last thing you want is to spend large amounts of effort downloading, installing, or configuring a product just to try it out. Or even worse, .. get stuck troubleshooting the process of getting a product up and running that you’re not even sure you want to use.
Red Hat is working with Codenvy to make it easier for developers to evaluate Red Hat technologies by allowing them to launch products in a browser-based IDE that is also running a helpful quickstart. It’s as simple as clicking a “Try It Now” button for the product you want to evaluate, and within ~30 seconds you can start editing the quickstart code within a cloud IDE.

In the first part of this series, you can see how to use and configure Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio in order to develop and deploy on the Next-Gen OpenShift platform. A step-by-step guide was given allowing us to:
- connect to the Next-Gen OpenShift platform from Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio
- deploy and tune a JBoss Enterprise Application Platform based application
- debug the deployed JBoss Enterprise Application Platform based application
In this second part, we will follow the same pattern but for a NodeJS based application.
