MicroProfile: Optimizing Enterprise Java for a Microservices Architecture

The pace of Java EE releases has been slowing and has been unable to adapt to the rapid rise of microservices. MicroProfile was created as a means to collaborate with vendors, individuals, and organizations like Java user groups in an open forum, to rapidly bring microservices to traditional Java EE developers. We moved the project to the Eclipse Foundation and have officially renamed it Eclipse MicroProfile. Red Hat is implementing MicroProfile specifications via WildFly Swarm and optimizing it for use on OpenShift.

Building Containerized IoT solutions on OpenShift Lab

As technology continues to disrupt the industries beyond the first wave (led by Netflix, Amazon, Uber etc.), the enterprises are embracing digital transformation to meet the challenge. One of the key technologies enabling digital transformation is Containers through its inherent advantages with packaging (Atomic, built for CI/CD), collaboration and runtime (lightweight, distributable, portable).

At the Red Hat Summit in Boston, Andrew Block and I conducted a hands-on lab on how to build a containerized intelligent Internet-of-Things (IoT) gateway on Red Hat OpenShift. The application is deployed as a set of microservices inside containers on the containerize IoT workload using microservices running on Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform.

Innovating on Developers Events, Building the API Escape Room

It’s been almost a month after the first world edition of API Escape room at the Red Hat Summit in Boston. We thought you might be interested to hear details on how we prepared this event.

With the 3scale team, we often participated in classical hackathons where developers gather for 48 hours to come up with a working prototype. These were awesomely fun (!), but the outcomes of those events are quite uncertain for organizers, sponsors, and participants. You cannot guarantee that hackers will build stunning original hacks and it can be a tough ask to keep working for such a long period. You can’t be sure that it won’t just be another “recipe app” or “Uber for X”.

Building a Secure IoT Solution: Summit 2017

How do customers build an end-to-end IoT solution using commercial grade, open source products? This is the question we (Patrick Steiner, Maggie Hu and I) wanted to address with our session at the Red Hat Summit, Boston. The end-to-end solution is based on three-tier Enterprise IoT Architecture, which integrates IoT data with existing business processes and the human element.
