What inspired you to be a developer?
Inspired by many early inventors such as the Wright Brothers, I like to combine innovation and implementation.
Why did you choose OpenShift as your hosting platform?
I’m interested in OpenShift mainly because it is a Docker Container based PaaS. I like Docker and believe it will be the next generation virtualization mainstream. Meanwhile OpenShift provided a very good user interface. It is built on top of AWS EC2 so all the bandwidth to/from S3 are free.
What advantages does OpenShift give you that other platforms don’t?
It is easier to deploy a scalable application than other platforms such as AWS. Also money wise, it is good choice since you get the first small gears for free. OpenShift has many applications optimized to start with.
