BTW, there are over 90 ways to earn these Developer Dollars.  Hmm, too easy?  :/

Red Hat Summit 2017 is for developers

You may have read or heard that we folded DevNation into Red Hat Summit this year, which means that every Summit attendee has access to developer-related sessions, labs, and more!

Here are some highlights to look forward to at Red Hat Summit (and why you should attend):

  • LOTS of developer content. This is possibly the largest Red Hat-hosted commercial developer event ever with nearly 150 developer-related sessions, labs, BoFs, Lightning talks, CodeStarters [1], classes, and demos, plus nearly 50 Red Hat engineers available for one-on-ones in the new “Ask the Experts” area.
  • Find your sessions. As you search for topics, look at the Application Development track and beyond as you’ll find many additional and relevant sessions in different tracks as well.
  • Hot topic. Microservices, containers, and cloud are all hot topics right now, so for those of you that want to focus on these, we have a Cloud Native Development Trail Map that will help you focus on 40 sessions, labs, and more.
