RedHat Shadowman Logo
Red Hat Summit has always catered to multiple user roles and this year will be no different.  What will be different in 2017 is an expanded focus on professional application developers much like DevNation has done in recent years.  As such, we will not be hosting a separate DevNation event alongside Summit 2017. Instead, Summit will include more advanced Application Development sessions, CodeStarters, labs, birds of a feathers, a new "Developer Zone" in the expo area, and much more.
What does this mean for you?
  • Attendees:  Every attendee can now access everything that's developer-related and at no extra cost.
  • Speakers:  You now have a larger audience to share your application development story, plus you and co-presenters get access to the entire Summit event.
Speakers:  submit your Application Development proposals today!
  1. Submit your proposal on the Summit CFP site [1] and tag it with the primary theme of Application Development.
  2. We're interested in advanced technical topics of all developer-related topics, but especially looking for sessions on: Microservices, MicroProfile, Containers, .NET, modern coding practices, CI/CD, DevOps, cloud/OpenShift, Mobile, Eclipse / Che, IoT, Node.js / Javascript, Software Collections, C++, performance tools, etc.
  3. Got a developer topic that's not listed in item 2?  Submit it.
DevNation going forward
The DevNation brand will continue to be used for remote and regional events (e.g. DevNation Federal) so you can all expect to see more of it in the years to come.
[1] Submit your proposals at and check out the guide.

The CFP will be open through Dec. 2, 2016.
