Getting applications into production these days has never been easier. If you want to get a proof-of-concept or a small app deployed quickly, you can use containers and some of the latest cloud platforms such as Heroku, AWS with Elastic Beanskalk and Good Cloud Platform quickly and easily. Vic will give live demos of doing just that by deploying a simple chat applications to the cloud. Instead of talking about different ways that we can do that, we will do it live, and showcase some platforms that are available to make our deployments easier. We will go over deploying an app using the Heroku platform, Amazon Web Services using Elastic Beanstalk, and using Docker and Google Cloud Platform, while highlighting and comparing the benefits of each provider.
