How to Run A Shiny App in the Cloud Using Tutum, Digital Ocean and Docker Containers

A few weeks ago I ran a link about running an application in a container in the cloud. The idea of this is that you create a complete operating system and server in a single package and run it on a cloud-based service. After I ran the post about the server ruunning Bluemix, Docker, and Watson, Tony Hirst published instructions describing how to run a Shiny app in the Cloud Using Tutum, Digital Ocean and Docker Containers. What's neat is that he stores the code in GitHub and sets it to update his cloud-based app when he updates his code. I don't know if I'll ever have the time to become expert in this, but I really like the way it's headed.
