Velociraptor (VR) seeks to create repeatable deployments by technical and non-technical users across a suite of languages, providing the service commonly knows as Platform as a Service or PaaS.

VR is inspired by Heroku and in particular the 12-factor methodology. VR supports the use of buildpacks for flexible, pluggable building of source code into apps suitable for deployment into Linux containers (lxc).

Getting Started

In September 2015, Jason presented Velociraptor to DCPython. It’s long (45 minutes!) but provides an overview of what VR is and how it works.

Alternatively, view the presentation slides (PDF) for an outline of the talk.
