Sandbox launched to simplify Kubernetes programming
Users of Red Hat OpenShift now have access to a range of new capabilities and updates that make developing applications for Kubernetes easier than ever before. The public launch of Developer Sandbox for Red Hat OpenShift brings about a no-cost and simple way to start creating applications without needing to spent time on their setup and configuration.
At a time when developers are constantly expected to quickly create cutting-edge applications, whilst also keeping abreast of changes in the often complex technological landscape, reducing barriers that slow developers down is vital.
When paired with the other developer tools on offer from Red Hat, the provider of open source solutions expects Red Hat OpenShift to solidify its position as the leading platform for building, deploying and managing enterprise Kubernetes applications.
Red Hat has recently updated many of its products, including their web console developer perspective that allows developers to quickly get started with new applications, as well as Red Hat CodeReady Workspaces 2.8 that offers a new dashboard to provide a more streamlined experience for users.
Red Hat reckons Developer Sandbox for Red Hat OpenShift is set to assist developers to build innovative applications that are future-proofed. According to Mithun Dhar, vice president and general manager, Developer Tools and Programs, Red Hat, a great deal of the work on Red Hat OpenShift has been focused on increasing developer productivity and handing control to developers so they are able to make the most use from the power of Kubernetes.
“We do this by abstracting the underlying complexity and offering a powerful platform and ecosystem built around it. With the OpenShift sandbox and latest update to our developer tools, we are taking steps to make it even easier for developers to get started building for Kubernetes,” says Dhar.
