We've had wonderful participation in the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 Beta, and if you participated in it, we hope you found the numerous related articles helpful. But whether or not you've tried Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 Beta, if you're attending Red Hat Summit 2019 next month, here are two hands-on labs you'll want to participate in.

The Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 Beta lab (with three time slots) will be applicable for nearly everyone and cover topics from AppStreams to yum. The Application Streams lab will be more for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 application development including container development with Podman and Buildah. If you're not familiar with Application Streams, read Langdon White's Introducing Application Streams in RHEL 8—he not only wrote the article but is also one of the lab instructors.

See you at Red Hat Summit; stop by the DevZone and say hello.

Using Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 Beta AppStreams and containers for app dev

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 Beta makes multiple versions of applications available to users to select and deploy with their applications. How does this work? Why would I need it?

In this lab, you'll experiment with the new AppStreams yourself. We'll guide you through developing an application with AppStreams. Along the way, you'll learn:

  • How and when to use AppStreams.
  • What AppStreams are available.
  • About AppStream profiles and defaults.
  • Using AppStreams with containers.

Come and build your first application using AppStreams.

  • Thursday, May 9, 2:00 p.m.–4:00 p.m.
