It started a little over a year ago, the first talk that I coined the term 'OpenShift Primer' was given in Amsterdam. It was born from a need to get the general developer public up and running with Red Hat's OpenShift Platform as a Service (Paas) project. Not just up and running as in getting it installed, but actually getting started coding with real projects.

It is not just about real development projects, but about focusing on JBoss related projects. You will find a lot of examples and quick-starts related to JBoss projects in the Java section as this might be my favorite open source software community to demonstrate enterprise ready solutions.

I tied into this over the following year by adding more and more quick-starts, howto's and just plain fun examples to my github repository. This led to a few online articles and then a rather large talk in Boston called OpenShift State of the Union.

In the middle of this I started collecting the pieces together for this book. It is available via developerpress.com in e-book format only, pushed out to Amazon and iBooks. This is perfect timing for you to stuff some stockings for the holidays!
