One of the advantages of OpenShift or any other Platform as a Service is that it gives developers the power to turn their ideas into applications. As a developer, you are only concerned about writing code and the platform manages and scales the underlying infrastructure for you. I am also a developer and I love to write code.
A few days ago, I came up with a very simple idea to show messages in real-time on a map. A user posts a message via the application user interface, the application captures the user’s current location using an HTML5 Geo-location API, and then displays the message on a map. If another user posts a message from some other part of world, the first user will see that same message in real-time. As users start posting messages, they will see all of the messages appearing on the map.
