At Red Hat Summit 2018, learn about the the top trends shaping the future of modern application development. You'll find out how service mesh and serverless computing are continuing the evolution that started with the move to microservices architecture. Hear Burr Sutter, and Brad Micklea discuss the 10 major changes that are poised to reshape the developer tools market for years to come. Gain insight as Red Hat CTO Chris Wright shares his views about how serverless, AI, and blockchain are likely to influence the future of technology.

You can also learn about the future of Red Hat's developer tools:

Join us May 8th – 10th at Red Hat Summit 2018 in San Francisco, at the Moscone Center.

Session Highlights:

10 trends reshaping the developer experience 

Speakers: Burr SutterBrad Micklea


Red Hat’s developer tools group is focused on creating compelling experiences for developers working with containers and serverless technologies. In this session, you will learn about the 10 major changes that we believe will reshape the developer tools market in the next 10 years and how our four product goals will help Red Hat customers and Red Hat OpenShift developers thrive in this new world. We’ll conclude with a demo of our cloud-native developer tooling for Red Hat OpenShift.

Charting new territories with Red Hat

Speakers:  Chris Wright


What emerging technologies is Red Hat exploring?

Attend this session where Red Hat CTO Chris Wright will provide insights into Red Hat’s research, innovation efforts, and direction related to emerging technologies, such as serverless, artificial intelligence (AI), blockchain, and more. Learn how innovative projects and technologies are evolving to help you plan and refine your IT strategies and roadmaps.


Kubernetes and the platform of the future

Speakers:  Steve WattClayton ColemanBrandon Philips


In this fireside chat, we’ll interview Clayton Coleman (Chief Engineer for OpenShift) and Brandon Philips (previously CTO of CoreOS, acquired by Red Hat) on their long term view on platforms and where we’ll be taking Kubernetes and OpenShift in the future. Clayton and Brandon have led development for most of the major technologies that power the Linux Container ecosystem today (Kubernetes, Open Container Initiative, etcd and more). Come prepared to ask questions and learn about the past, the present, and the future.


Containers, microservices, serverless: On being serverless or serverful

Speaker: Burr Sutter


The first generation of microservices was primarily shaped by Netflix OSS and used by numerous Spring Cloud annotations all throughout your business logic. The next generation of microservices will use sidecars and a service mesh. In this session, we'll give you a taste of Envoy and Istio, 2 open source projects that will change the way you write distributed, cloud native, Java applications on Kubernetes.

Then we'll show you the power of Serverless architecture. Serverless is a misnomer; your future cloud native applications will consist of both microservices and functions, often wrapped as Linux containers, but in many cases where you, the developer, ignore the operational aspects of managing that infrastructure.

In this session, we start off building a Function-as-a-Service (FaaS) platform with Apache OpenWhisk deployed on OpenShift. With OpenShift being the de facto platform for cloud-native Java applications, we'll explore further to see how to make cloud-native Java applications (a.k.a microservices) complement the serverless functions.


Clouds today, serverless tomorrow: Your future apps and platforms

Speaker: Stephanos Bacon


For years, the future of software architectures has been described as a proliferation of lightweight, cloud-connected devices. Many organizations are adopting microservices architecture (MSA) alongside more traditional ones to realize this future, where modular systems can be created more quickly and managed on a scale that exceeds earlier approaches. And yet, we continue to move forward. An exciting future that includes serverless is emerging. Serverless is a major shift in the way developers will build and deliver software systems by further insulating them from infrastructure concerns.

Each approach offers its own set of benefits and challenges. The reality is that most organizations will have a mixture of architectures, platforms, tools, and processes for the foreseeable future. How should you be thinking about the evolution of your application architecture and the platforms that support it?

If you do it right, developers will be able to exploit complex logic and large datasets from a variety of sources to build applications that they could never have imagined just a few years ago. Attend this session to learn what existing and emerging technologies Red Hat is exploring in this area and which ones you should be considering to tie it all together.



An eventful tour from enterprise integration to serverless computing

Speakers:  Christian PostaMarius Bogoevici


Microservices, data streaming, and serverless computing are trendy, and for good reason. These technologies have evolved to provide economical solutions to modern problems, and have been enabled by technical innovations, such as cloud platforms and an increased demand for data, and experiment-driven business models.

However, simply following trends is not a recipe for success. To adopt new technologies and architectural patterns efficiently, developers and architects must understand how they evolved in the larger context of messaging and event-driven architecture.

Join us for an overview of different styles of messaging and event-driven architecture, ranging from enterprise integration to event-driven microservices, data streaming, and serverless computing. We will show you how these technologies came into existence, how they evolved from each other, and what problems they solve. To keep things practical, we will show you how to build and run them on Red Hat OpenShift with Red Hat portfolio components.
