Credit where credit's due
We've used a whole host of technologies to put Nomad together, and we'd like to say a particular thanks to all the great open source projects which make life so much easier nowadays for a startup.
Nomad is hosted partly on Amazon's ec2 service and partly in our own colo space at Rackspace. We manage our stack with Puppet for configuration management, Capistrano for application deployment, and supervisord for process management.
Our VS extension was not surprisingly built by Rob in C# with Visual Studio and NUnit.
We'd also like to acknowledge a whole host of other tools we've made use of along the way, including Pivotal Tracker, Mixpanel, Zendesk, Jekyll, Mailchimp, Github, Tumblr, Feedburner, and Google Analytics.
Most importantly, Nomad uses the excellent PhoneGap without which the service would not be possible.
