Summit Book Signing: From Pots and Vats to Programs and Apps

Not everything about computers and software these days is related to packaging, but a lot is. How can users acquire software faster and run it more easily? How should software be packaged up so that we can run it wherever we like? How do we resolve the tensions between the siren song of public cloud convenience and open source freedom and flexibility?

Play in the Developer Cup Game at Red Hat Summit – get more swag

Developers, it’s time to learn and earn: let’s have some fun at Red Hat Summit.

I’m hosting the Developer Cup game for you to earn “Developer Dollars” while you learn about really cool development tools and technologies.  Once you earn enough, you can “buy” some excellent swag such as this hoodie!  We have other stuff too, but I can’t show you those yet – you’ll need to attend Summit and see for yourself. BTW, there are over 90 ways to earn these Developer Dollars.  Hmm, too easy?  :/

//Make the game harder next year.

 

It’s really simple to play.

Perform hands-on, real-world IoT development at the Red Hat Summit IoT CodeStarter

What happens when you have expensive industrial equipment that needs to be moved from point A to point B and you want to anticipate all that could happen in the process: improper handling, power failure, or even thievery? How do you collect data from its various sensors (vibration, humidity, etc.) to make sure your equipment is operating properly? How do you provide connectivity so that all the way from point A to point B, your asset is reporting to a backend server to allow for remote tracking? What kind of backend system should you rely on for collecting and making use of the information that you will be collecting?

Join this year’s Red Hat Summit IoT CodeStarter [1] to experience – live! –  the capabilities of open source projects such as Eclipse Kura and Eclipse Kapua for creating efficient and easy-to-maintain IoT solutions for asset management.

Red Hat Summit 2017 – Planning your Cloud and Containers Labs

This year in Boston, MA you can attend the Red Hat Summit 2017, the event to get your updates on open source technologies and meet with all the experts you follow throughout the year.

It’s taking place from May 2-4 and is full of interesting sessions, keynotes, and labs.

This year I was part of the process of selecting the labs you are going to experience at Red Hat Summit and wanted to share them to help you plan your cloud and containers labs experience. These labs are for you to spend time with the experts who will teach you hands-on and how to get the most out of development with containers and in the Cloud using products like OpenShift Container Platform.

Each lab is a 2-hour session, so planning is essential to getting the most out of your days at Red Hat Summit.

As you might be struggling to find and plan your sessions together with some lab time, here is an overview of the labs, you can find the exact room and times in the session catalog. Each entry includes the lab number, title, abstract, instructors, and is linked to the session catalog entry:

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.
