DevNation Live Blog: Building Reactive Applications with Node.js and Red Hat JBoss Data Grid

At DevNation, Red Hat’s Galder Zamarreño gave a talk with a live demo, Building reactive applications with Node.js and Red Hat JBoss Data Grid. The demo consisted of building an event-based three tier web application using JBoss Data Grid (JDG) as the data layer, an event manager running on Node.js, and a web client. Recently, support for Node.js clients was added to JDG, opening up the performance of a horizontally scalable in-memory data grid, to reactive web and mobile applications.

DevNation Live Blog: Developing with OpenShift without the build waits

Red Hat’s Peter Larsen, the OpenShift Domain Architect, gave a talk at DevNation, “Developing on OpenShift without the build waits”. Developing with the OpenShift Platform-as-a-Service can be very compelling: developing and deploying software without having to worry about the infrastructure. When you first try OpenShift, it’s quite impressive to see how easy it is to develop and deploy software using the built-in templates that include preconfigured components such as databases and application servers. This allows developers to start coding right away.
