OpenShift Developer Spotlight: Doug Garrett

OpenShift Developer Spotlight: Doug Garrett

Our developer spotlight this week features Doug Garrett and his application, Rate a Meeting which provide attendees of a meeting with a quick and easy way to rate the meeting on a scale from 1-5 to give the presenter feedback. The app was created using bootstrap, and MongoDB, Express, AngularJS, and Node.js (MEAN stack.)

Learn more about Doug as a developer and check out his app in our application gallery.
