DevNation talks I want to see, by Matt Newsome

We’ve just over a month to go until Red Hat Summit 2014 and the newly rebranded DevNation conference open their doors in San Francisco’s Moscone Center South, located in the heart of downtown San Francisco.

While we’re putting the finishing touches to our great new product releases for developers, we’re also really looking forward to attending the conferences ourselves. They present a great opportunity for like-minded developers to come together, see what’s new and share ideas – all part of the “Open Source way” Red Hat embodies.

So in that spirit, I’m making a short list of the top talks I’ll be looking forward to joining with my conference hat on:

  • Monday, April 14
    • 10:15am-11:15am

Of course, there are many, many more talks and sessions at DevNation, and that’s before looking in depth at the Red Hat Summit conference agenda. These are just some of my choices, but you can see there’s a wide range of topics to choose from as well as some social events for good measure.
