O’Reilly Authors are Heading to Summit – microservices, raspberry pi hacks, .NET and more.

Red Hat Summit is just around the corner in Boston and we are preparing just a few of the many Red Hat authors for their book signings.  We’ve given them 6 steps to signing books:

  • Step 1: Get books ordered.
  • Step 2: Get to Boston.
  • Step 3: Bring a marker.
  • Step 4: Bring a spare marker.
  • Step 5: Show up at the right time.
  • Step 6: Enjoy sharing your work with attendees!

How to Get Developers to Adopt Your Product

This article is written as opinion. The opinions expressed within are solely those of the author, and do not represent the views of Red Hat.


Recently, I participated in a focus group where developers were asked to discuss how they make technology adoption decisions. Even “the big guys” seem unsure of how to get developers to notice and adopt their products. So, in this post, I’m going to try to reduce our learning and adoption process down to some concrete steps. The truth is, we don’t just pick up tools, components, libraries, or languages just to complete a particular task or project. In truth, any technology we adopt has to help us do one or more of three important jobs. The more of these jobs your product can do, the more likely developers will pick it up and stick with it.

New Distributed Primitives for Developers

Object-Oriented Primitives (in-process primitives)

As a Java developer, I’m well familiar with object-oriented concepts such as class, object, inheritance, encapsulation, polymorphism, etc. In addition to the object-oriented concepts, I’m also well familiar with the Java runtime, what features it provides, how it manages my applications, what would be the life cycle of my object and the application as a whole, etc.

And for over a decade, I’ve used all the primary tools, primitives, and building blocks as a developer to create applications. In my mental model, I would use classes as components, which would give birth to objects that are managed by the JVM. But that model has started to change recently.

Open Source is Everywhere

“OPEN SOURCE”- it’s FREE! This is what comes first to mind when someone asks us about our knowledge of Open Source. It was the case with us until someone told us about what exactly Open Source is and its importance in the present IT sector. Today we definitely stand apart from not only our classmates but also from those who believe that open source is just what you do to pass the time and because it’s OPEN SOURCE.

Red Hat Certified Engineer – what a big name. This certification made us feel confident that we can excel in the field of Open Source irrespective of what we are at present, which is either a student or an employee working in a multinational company. It was the end of our vacation of the third year and the start of another era called the final year. But this era would not be easy as that spent in the last three years, as there will be different obstacles moving forward.

The Shadow Man on Our campus

Engineering is the platform where after the tenure of a four-year term we look back, feel proud about some of our own decisions, and regret others as well. Such as the following case at our college when first-time industry professionals met with one of the most experienced trainers of Red Hat, at our campus, spreading the word of Open Source.

Working with a Dispersed Team – Part 7 of 7

How to Build Community in Your Dispersed Team

People want to be part of something bigger than themselves. The identity of your team hugely influences that. Some teams discover shared interests or hobbies. Others share a sense of humor to cope with challenging customers. Camaraderie makes all the difference for workplace satisfaction. When that happens, people will work harder, work more smoothly with each other, and be less likely to leave. It’s great news that distance does not have to get in the way of your team’s community.

Direct Kernel Open vSwitch Flow Programming

Typically, users will interact with the Open vSwitch kernel datapath by way of the ‘ovs-ofctl’ utility to program OpenFlow rules into the ‘ovs-vswitchd’. However, this isn’t the only mechanism for forwarding packets via the openvswitch kernel module. An additional direct flow-programming interface is available using the ‘ovs-dpctl’ utility to add flows to the kernel. This post will cover influencing the movement of packets through the openvswitch kernel module using the ‘ovs-dpctl’ utility.
