Building freely distributed containers with Podman and Red Hat UBI

Building freely distributed containers with Podman and Red Hat UBI

DevNation tech talks are hosted by the Red Hat technologists who create our products. These sessions include real solutions and code and sample projects to help you get started. In this talk, you’ll learn about building containers with Podman and Red Hat Universal Base Image (UBI) from Scott McCarty and Burr Sutter.

We will cover how to build and run containers based on UBI using just your regular user account—no daemon, no root, no fuss. Finally, we will order the de-resolution of all of our containers with a really cool command. After this talk, you will have new tools at the ready to help you find, run, build, and share container images.

DevNation Live Bengaluru: Kubernetes serverless application architecture

DevNation Live Bengaluru: Kubernetes serverless application architecture

Our first DevNation Live regional event was held in Bengaluru, India in July. This free technology event focused on open source innovations, with sessions presented by elite Red Hat technologists.

In this session, Burr Sutter discusses serverless architectures, which have become a common approach in organizations that want to be more effective in DevOps and optimize their IT resources. This approach adds further flexibility to the next generation of microservices, and Knative helps running your microservices serverless workloads on Kubernetes/OpenShift be more agile and effective.

Intro to Apache Kafka and Kafka Streams for Event-Driven Microservices on DevNation Live

Intro to Apache Kafka and Kafka Streams for Event-Driven Microservices on DevNation Live

Scalability is often a key issue for many growing organizations. That’s why many organizations use Apache Kafka, a popular messaging and streaming platform. It is horizontally scalable, cloud-native, and versatile. It can serve as a traditional publish-and-subscribe messaging system, as a streaming platform, or as a distributed state store. Companies around the world use Apache Kafka to build real-time streaming applications, streaming data pipelines, and event-driven architectures.

Securing apps and services with Keycloak (Watch DevNation Live video)

Securing apps and services with Keycloak (Watch DevNation Live video)

The video from the last DevNation Live: Securing apps and services with Keycloak is now available to watch online.  In this session, you will learn how to secure web/HTML5 applications, single-page and mobile applications, and services with Keycloak. Keycloak can be used to secure traditional monolithic applications as well as microservices and service mesh-based applications that need secure end-to-end authentication for all front- and back-end services. The examples in the video cover PHP, Node.js, and HTML/JavaScript.

Securing applications and services is no longer just about assigning a username and password. You need to manage identities. You need to integrate with legacy and external authentication systems to provide features that are in demand like social logins and single sign-on (SSO). Your list of other requirements may be long. But you don’t want to develop all of this yourself, nor should you.

July 19th DevNation Live: Container pipeline master: Continuous integration + continuous delivery with Jenkins

July 19th DevNation Live: Container pipeline master: Continuous integration + continuous delivery with Jenkins

Join us for the next online DevNation Live on Thursday, July 19th at 12pm EDT for Container pipeline master: Continuous integration + continuous delivery with Jenkins, presented by Red Hat principal technical product marketing manager for Red Hat OpenShift, Siamak Sadeghianfar.

In this session, we’ll take a detailed look into how you can build a super slick, automated continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) Jenkins pipeline that delivers your application payloads onto the enterprise Kubernetes platform, Red Hat OpenShift. You see how zero-downtime deployment patterns can be part of your release process when you are using a container platform based on Kubernetes.

Automating your build, test, and deployment processes can improve reliability and reduce the need for rollbacks. However, we’ll show you how rollbacks can be handled too.

Register now and join the live presentation at 12pm EDT, Thursday, July 19th.

Next DevNation Live: Feature toggles and hypothesis-driven development, July 5th, 12pm EDT

Next DevNation Live: Feature toggles and hypothesis-driven development, July 5th, 12pm EDT

Can you “foresee the feature?” Do you know if proposed changes to your application will have the desired impact to your business? Let’s drop the crystal ball approach and start practicing some hypothesis-driven development so you can test your assumptions. Not every new feature is guaranteed to be a success. Some might just waste time and increase your technical debt. Join us for the next online DevNation Live on July 5th at 12pm EDT for Feature Toggles and Hypothesis-driven Development, presented by Red Hat director of Developer Experience, Edson Yanaga.

In this session, we’ll demonstrate how feature toggles can be incorporated into your software development process to let you quickly assess the business results of changes. By toggling functionality on and off, you can measure the impact and make better decisions based on real data.

Join us to gain an understanding of how the use of hypotheses, not requirements, can help you deliver what your business actually requires while learning quickly what works and what does not.

Register now and join the live presentation at 12pm EDT, Thursday, July 5th.
