Summit's developer track also has a number of on-demand sessions that you can watch at your convenience. One highlight here that will be of interest to most Red Hat Developer readers is the Developer tools roadmap. Steve Speicher, Parag Dave, and Serena Nichols will illustrate how Red Hat supports a cloud-first approach to cloud-native development while tying it to the multicloud and hybrid cloud challenges developers face today. The approach includes how Red Hat's developer tools remove friction and provide solutions that help application teams deliver results faster, and how we bring new managed experiences with a push to offer more managed services to developers. The session outlines the full life cycle of the development process through the entire delivery pipeline, and focuses on the tools that meet the developers where they are: IDEs, CLIs, Web UIs, and more.

And we've got many more on-demand sessions that cover a variety of topics. Here are the highlights.

Cloud environments

These sessions show tangible benefits to running on environments provided by Red Hat in the cloud.

Developer productivity, security, and standardization: Are they at odds or can they all be achieved?

Ford Motor Company employs many developers and has many types of applications. Important security measures often frustrate developers and slow down their productivity. The company worked closely with security compliance experts, developer champions, and Red Hat to find a way to provide a consistent, secure, and productive way to unblock developers from getting their deliverables out of their workspaces and into production, delivering business value as quickly as possible and with the least risk.

In this session, Red Hat's Steve Speicher and Ford's Satish Puranam cover how Ford uses Red Hat OpenShift Dev Spaces (formerly CodeReady Workspaces) to host standardized and fully functional developer workspaces to let developers quickly get going in the IDEs in which they are most productive. The speakers will also cover application onboarding and continuous integration and delivery. You can join this session here.
