Sprint 2017 GNU Toolchain Update

The GNU Toolchain is a collection of programming tools produced by the GNU Project. The tools are often packaged together due to their common use for developing software applications, operating systems, and low-level software for embedded systems.

This blog is part of a regular series covering the latest changes and improvements in the components that make up this Toolchain.  Apart from the announcement of new releases, however, the features described here are at the bleeding edge of software development in the tools.  This does mean that it may be a while before they make it into production releases, and they might not be fully functional yet.  But anyone who is interested in experimenting with them can build their own copy of the Toolchain and then try them out.

JBoss participates in Google Summer of Code 2017

Google Summer of Code (GSoC), for those who are not familiar, is an initiative led by Google to encourage students to participate in Open Source projects during their summer break. Projects like JBoss Community, Eclipse Vert.X or Fedora apply to be a mentoring organization and if selected by Google, are paired with students with whom they will mentor. Selected and successful students will receive a stipend from Google for their participation.

The JBoss community has been participating in GSoC for the past several years, with outstanding success, and I am happy to announce that the JBoss community has once again been selected as a mentoring organization for GSoC 2017. I have written about last year’s results in the past.

We have posted a list of ideas for proposals for students, but students are also encouraged to submit their own ideas.

Announcing Fuse for agile integration on the cloud – FIS 2.0 release

Today, I am very pleased to announce the GA of Fuse Integration Service 2.0. This release will make integration applications more portable, flexible and allow agile developers to react faster to business needs by supporting microservice architectures. Developers will now be able to realize the benefits of microservices within integration projects and be able to leverage integration patterns while breaking up monolithic applications and reducing the size of services pushed onto older ESB technology.

With FIS 2.0, developers can now choose a more suitable technology for the composition and integration of microservices,  with a more lightweight runtime providing for faster deployment, while simplifying packaging and ensuring a smoother process from development to production, as well as allowing management of the distributed application and taking care of fault tolerance all at the same time.

Red Hat Summit, DevNation, and an Application Development call for papers

Red Hat Summit has always catered to multiple user roles and this year will be no different.  What will be different in 2017 is an expanded focus on professional application developers much like DevNation has done in recent years.  As such, we will not be hosting a separate DevNation event alongside Summit 2017. Instead, Summit will include more advanced Application Development sessions, CodeStarters, labs, birds of a feathers, a new “Developer Zone” in the expo area, and much more.
What does this mean for you?
  • Attendees:  Every attendee can now access everything that’s developer-related and at no extra cost.
  • Speakers:  You now have a larger audience to share your application development story, plus you and co-presenters get access to the entire Summit event.
Speakers:  submit your Application Development proposals today!
