For the last couple of years, Red Hat has presented Red Hat Developer Toolset features, roadmaps and demonstrations at Red Hat Summit and co-located developer events.

This year, we'll be attending both Red Hat Summit and DevNation, both of which are happening slightly earlier in the year, in April (13-17 to be exact) at San Francisco's Moscone Center. I'll be attending and showing audiences the Red Hat Developer Toolset 2.1 update, complete with video demonstrations so you can see as well as hear about the great new features.

Primarily for C, C++, or Fortran developers, but also catering to the needs and interests of managers and system administrators, I'll cover how to access supported versions of the latest and greatest tools with the features and standards support they provide. I'll walk through how you can use Red Hat Developer Toolset to write and test your application once, and then deployment to multiple versions of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

This year, there's a shared track that all Red Hat Summit and DevNation attendees can participate in. I’ll be giving a talk on that shared track on Wednesday, April 16 4:50 pm - 5:50pm covering our latest development tools and news on Red Hat Developer Toolset.  Look for "Developer toolset: Build, run, & analyze apps on multiple Red Hat Enterprise Linux versions" on the "Taste of DevNation" track.

For Red Hat Summit attendees, however, your first opportunity to hear a little about Red Hat Developer Toolset and some of the stability-focused tools in Red Hat Enterprise Linux will be at the Red Hat Enterprise Linux Roadmap talk. You'll find that on Tuesday, April 15 1:20 pm - 3:30 pm in the main Summit "Best of" track.

And if you can't make either of those, there will be video demonstrations and opportunities to ask questions at the Red Hat booth at various times throughout the week. You’d be very welcome at any of these sessions – come along, bring your friends and ask us any questions you like about our tools.

Coming back to the talk on the shared Summit/DevNation track, I'll talk about the new Red Hat Developer Toolset 2.1 release. Specifically, I'll talk about how it provides functionality that empowers developers to use a single set of tools to build, run, and analyze the performance of their applications for multiple versions of Red Hat Enterprise Linux. I’ll also cover how to use Developer Toolset to develop applications with the same GCC version on multiple Red Hat Enterprise Linux releases. We'll then look at how resulting applications can then be run and analyzed on multiple Red Hat Enterprise Linux releases without changing the operating system runtime. Finally, I’ll talk about how you can access Developer Toolset yourself.

So, as a quick reminder:

  • "Red Hat Enterprise Linux roadmap: Parts I and II" on the Summit "Best of" track
    Tuesday, April 15, 1:20 - 3:30pm
  • "Developer toolset: Build, run, & analyze apps on multiple Red Hat Enterprise Linux versions" on the shared Summit/DevNation track ("Taste of DevNation")
    Wednesday, April 16th, 4:50 - 5:50pm
  • Red Hat Developer Toolset Demos
    At various times [to be posted] within the Red Hat Booth and Developer Lounge

Look forward to seeing you there! Remember, Summit and DevNation are earlier this year than last - in April rather than the summer - so register today!
