18F is an organization that is building the 21st century digital government. In order to build online government services that have the high quality of modern cloud applications, 18F built Cloud.gov, a platform-as-a-service that can be used to stand up web applications for divisions of the government.
Aidan Feldman helped build Cloud.gov, and on today’s episode he dissects its architecture. Cloud.gov is built on CloudFoundry, which sits on top of a special version Amazon Web Services built specifically for the US government. We also explore how application development works at 18F, and how 18F has built a culture that reflects an ideal mix of public service and fast-moving innovation.
