OpenShift and Drupal: A story of true open source collaboration and innovation

Click here to watch OpenShift and Drupal: A story of true open source collaboration and innovation

The success of Open Source technology is dependant on collaboration, contribution and innovation. One challenge we often see in open source communities is the time and effort of getting new developers set up in a development environment, so they can start creating and contributing code. Enter OpenShift, a completely open-source Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) product from Red Hat. We saw the opportunity to leverage Drupal with this tool to empower Drupal developers to quickly spin up Drupal 7 and Drupal 8 environments. With the support of Steven Merrill and the OpenShift community we developed a Drupal 7 quickstart, a Drupal 8 quickstart, a Drupal 7 helper cartridge, and a PHP-FPM cartridge for Openshift. This session will discuss how you can use Openshift and the Drupal cartridges to accelerate your web development.

Learn how OpenShift’s cartridge model makes it easy to build applications that can be deployed to your own fully open-source Platform-as-a-Service or to OpenShift Online and how OpenShift leverages open-source technologies to make it simple to deploy a Platform-as-a-Service on both Fedora and CentOS / RHEL.

This is a story of how two open source community leaders (Red Hat and Drupal) came together to contribute their expertise to the open source community to make one-click Drupal 7 or 8 available for testing with just one click!
