I am starting to learn about the Spring Cloud framework and the Netflix OSS. I will not add much information since I am newbie here, but I just wanted to share a video (well actually a list of videos) that show its capabilities i.e. how easy is building distributed applications using the framework.
Of course the easiness has a price, since you really get bounded to the framework. But if you want to be highly productive and you care about the business and not so much about controlling the infrastructure at low level, this could be a perfect way to go.
You can see the first video with the introduction by Matt Stine here:
