Open Source Conference 2011 - technical workshops and sessions on OpenShift, JBoss SOA and jBPM

We are going to roll out the technical workshops and sessions this year the the Open Source Conference 2011 in Amsterdam on the 9th of December. The following will be the JBoss middleware track, with first the workshop in the morning and the two sessions in the afternoon.



An OpenShift Primer for Developers to get your Code into the Cloud

Whether you’re a seasoned Java developer looking to start hacking on
EE6 or you just wrote your first line of Ruby yesterday, the cloud is
turning out to be the perfect environment for developing applications
in just about any modern language or framework. There are plenty of
clouds and platform-as-a-services to choose from, but where to start?
Join us for an action-packed hour of power where we’ll show you how to
deploy an application written in the language of your choice – Java,
Ruby, PHP, Perl or Python, with the framework of your choice – EE6,
CDI, Seam, Spring, Zend, Cake, Rails, Sinatra, PerlDancer or Django to
the OpenShift PaaS in just minutes. And without having to rewrite your
app to get it to work the way the cloud provider thinks your app
should work.

Check the command-line fu as we leverage Git to onboard apps onto
OpenShift Express in seconds, while also making use of the web browser
do the heavy-lifting of provisioning clusters, deploying, monitoring
and auto-scaling apps in OpenShift Flex.

If you want to learn how the OpenShift PaaS and investing an hour of
your time can change everything you thought you knew about developing
applications in the cloud, this session is for you!



Afternoon sessions:

JBoss Brings More Power to your Business Processes


A Business Process Management System (BPMS) offers you the
capabilities to better manage and streamline your business processes.
JBoss jBPM continues its vision in this area by offering a lightweight
process engine for executing business processes, combined with the
necessary services and tooling to support business processes in their
entire lifecycles. This allows not only developers but also business
users to manage your business processes more efficiently.

A lot has happened in the BPM area over the last few years, with the
introduction of the BPMN 2.0 standard, the increasing interest in more
dynamic and adaptive processes, integration with business rules and
event processing, case management, etc. In this session,  we will show
you how jBPM5 tackles these challenges, discuss migration to this new
platform and give you an overview of its most important features.
