I returned late Sunday night from a trip to the south of France, where I was privileged to speak about Microservices, OpenShift, and how to do it all on Node.js. The conference was RivieraDev/JUDCon: Riviera 2017 and took place in Sophia Antipolis, near Nice, Cannes, St. Tropez and other fabulous Mediterranean cities on the southeastern coast of France.

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.

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.

Google Summer of Code (GSoC) is a yearly effort run by Google to bring students and open source projects together. Open source projects apply to be mentoring organizations. Google selects some organizations where students then apply. A limited number of them is selected to work on the projects. Each selected student gets a stipend from Google.

Last week, I attended a DevNation talk, “Getting Started with C# on Red Hat Enterprise Linux and OpenShift”, given by Scott Hunter from Microsoft. The first thing Scott asked was, “Does anyone know how to recover from hitting CTRL-ALT-F8 in Red Hat Enterprise Linux?”

Just like winter, The Developer’s Conference (TDC) and the Red Hat Developers group are arriving at São Paulo from July 5th to July 9th, 2016. We are all very excited to meet one of the largest development conferences in Brazil (if not the largest) that encompasses a whole set of developers from a myriad of different communities. It doesn’t matter the technology, chances are you’ll find your peers at São Paulo in this mild winter (and we’re sure that for many outsiders, it feels like summer: temperatures this week will reach up to 28ºC or 83ºF).
This year we’re going to have the largest Red Hat presence ever at TDC, with many Red Hatters as track leads and a dozen of talks presented by Red Hat engineers. And of course Red Hat developers is sponsoring the event with thousands of swag to give away (but hurry up if you want some). Please be welcome to visit our booth and chat a bit with our staff and engineers that will be more than happy to assist you in anything related to Red Hat technologies.
Check out what Red Hat will be delivering on TDC São Paulo:

From May 10th to May 14th we arrived at Florianópolis (with a short travel to Campinas) to do what we love the most: talk to developers. We from Red Hat Developers had an amazing time with the developer community gathered together at both The Developer’s Conference (TDC) Florianópolis and DevCamp.
Red Hat delivered a lot of great content to the audience, with speakers presenting dozens of talks in the Java EE, Java, Cloud Computing, Architecture, DevOps and .NET tracks. Congratulations and thank you to George Gastaldi, Eder Ignatowicz, Edson Yanaga, Ricardo Martinelli de Oliveira and Filippe da Costa Spolti for sharing your experience and expertise with 4200+ developers at Florianópolis and 700+ developers at Campinas!
The thing that most amazed us? The massive presence of developers interested to talk with Red Hat engineers at our booth. We had a lot of people interested in DevOps, Containers, OpenShift, Microservices, Wildfly Swarm, Forge and Drools. Thanks to this enthusiastic crowd we were able to earn an incredible achievement: they formed a huge line on the Expo Hall in front of the Red Hat booth and we ran out of swag on the first 30 minutes of the first day of the conference! We guess they loved our talk. Or our swag. Or both!

The Developer’s Conference (TDC) is one of the largest development conferences in Brazil, and encompasses a whole set of developers from a myriad of different communities.

At Red Hat Developers, we’re working to create a new breed of developer community – one where its participants Learn, Code, and Share together. As part of the process, we’re publishing information that you find helpful, interesting, and things that generally make you awesome, feel awesome, and inspire you to do awesome things. (That’s the goal, anyway.)
One thing you might not know, is that most of the articles that get published here are actually contributed by our community members (you can contribute too!), but our contributors want to know what you care about, so they can share things that matter.
That’s why were going to be running monthly surveys to learn what you care about, and learn what you want to hear about. So if you’ll give us one minute of your time, it would help us deliver just that – information worth reading and sharing. Please take that minute to fill out the survey below!
