Cloud Foundry: Automated Deployment and Management for Java applications on Amazon EC2


POJOs in Action

Available now

"A good way to quickly get up to speed with today's practices for lightweight development."
Floyd Marinescu, Founder, Creator,

Reducing development costs and improving the effectiveness of Java developers

Led by Chris Richardson, hands-on architect and author of POJOs in Action, we are a team of expert software developers with a deep knowledge of enterprise Java technologies and highly productive development techniques.


Need someone to build and deploy your application?

We work with you to build and deploy the least amount of software required to beat the competition and make money. We can even help you create your engineering team. We will also work with you to deploy your application, on either your own servers or the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2).


Starting a new project?

We work with your team to implement one or more vertical slices through your application. We train them on how to use frameworks such as Spring and Hibernate  effectively and help them learn highly productive development techniques such as automated testing.


Need help with an existing project?

We review your architecture, your code, your team and your development practices and create a plan to improve your application and boost your team's productivity. We will then coach your team while they implement the plan and, if necessary, our consultants can implement some of the improvements.


Need to deploy your application on Amazon EC2?

We can help your team quickly get up to speed with Cloud Computing. We will help you migrate an existing application to the Amazon EC2 environment. We can also help you architect new applications to fully leverage the capabilities of Amazon Web Services.


"I enjoyed Chris's Spring and Hibernate class. Unlike other training I've attended, his class was heavy on substance and light on fluff. I highly recommend it."

Brian Miner, Senior Programmer, Edfund

"Not only did Chris help us with important Spring and Hibernate design issues but he also tracked down some critical bugs right before we went live. Getting Chris involved early in a project is an excellent way to avoid traps and pitfalls."

Andre Taube, VP of Engineering, Rubiconsoft
