This is the first, introductory, part of a four part video tutorial on using Pivotal’s Cloud Foundry to build and deploy cloud-native applications. Check back in the next few days for additional segments…

The old in-house ways of developing and deploying enterprise software are complicated and slow. They are gradually being replaced by a new set of more automated services, often housed in the cloud.  But how does the developer get up to speed on this new stack, if you will?

Don’t worry, we’ll get you to the cloud’s blinking cursor.

The video embedded below is the first in a four-part series, running through early next week, that will walk users how to get started using the Pivotal’s Cloud Foundry-based set of cloud services. Cloud Foundry can run Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, OpenStack clouds, VMware’s vSphere-based clouds.

In this introductory installment, Michael Coté, director of technical marketing at Pivotal, provides a high-level overview of how cloud services are architected. Cloud Foundry, and its supporting tools, provides the interface to developers so they don’t have to worrying about configuring databases, middleware, or others services needed to run an application in the cloud.

As a developer, “You don’t need to worry about managing everything underneath” your application, Coté said.
