One of the most significant shifts that developers have had to face has been the coming of age of the hybrid cloud. Cloud-native paradigms like microservices and Linux containers–and now serverless–have shaken up traditional application development practices. Modern application development in a cloud-native world requires developers to apply new tools and new ways of thinking.

At Red Hat Summit 2018, Red Hat’s John Osborne and Microsoft’s Harold Wong gave a talk: Developing .NET Core Applications on Red Hat OpenShift.
.NET Core 1.0 availability for Linux was announced two years ago, but many developers still have a number of questions about the differences between .NET Framework and .NET Core. The session started with an overview of the differences. In a nutshell, .NET Framework is the set of APIs and libraries that Windows developers have used to years, which is pretty heavily tied to Microsoft Windows and Windows GUI APIs. On the other hand, .NET Core is the cross-platform set of APIs that are available for building applications that can run on Linux, macOS, or mobile devices via Xamarin. .Net Core 2.0 was released last August; see Don Schenck’s article.
One of the key questions is when to use one versus the other. Here’s the summary Harold Wong presented:

Early this year, the book Effective Business Process Management with JBoss BPM launched a free ebook on Red Hat Developers that you can download. Next week I’ll be at the Red Hat Summit 2018 conference in San Francisco, CA, at the Moscone Center speaking and presenting a hands-on lab.
The surprise event is that Red Hat authors will be spending time at the booth where we’ll be signing copies of our respective books. Look for me at the following times at the section labeled DevZone ready to sign and give you a copy of Effective Business Process Management with JBoss BPM:

Cloud-native application development is the new paradigm for building applications and although is it often mistaken for microservices, it is much more than that and encompasses not only the application architecture but also the process through which applications are built, deployed, and managed.
New apps are often seen as the focus of cloud-native applications; however, we believe existing and new applications are alike and can incorporate cloud-native practices if they have the four defining characteristics of cloud-native applications:
- Service-based: Build modular loosely coupled services (for example, microservices).
- API-driven: Expose services via lightweight technology-agnostic APIs.
- Containers: Package and deploy in containers as a portable unit of compute.
- DevOps: Adopt agile and DevOps principles.
The Getting Started with Cloud-Native Apps lab at Red Hat Summit 2018, which takes place in San Francisco on May 8–10, has a packed agenda that focuses on walking participants through the principles of building and operating cloud-native applications.

Red Hat Summit 2018 will focus on modern application development. A critical part of modern application development is of course securing your applications and services. Things were challenging when you only needed to secure a single monolithic application. In a modern application landscape, you’re probably looking at building microservices and possibly exposing application services and APIs outside the boundaries of your enterprise. In order to deploy cloud-native applications and microservices you must be able to secure them. You might be faced with the challenge of securing both applications and back-end services accessed by mobile devices while using third party identity providers like social networks. Fortunately, Red Hat Summit 2018 has a number of developer-oriented sessions where you can learn how to secure your applications and services, integrate single-sign on, and manage your APIs. Session highlights include:
