Portugal Java User Group (JUG) - on tour with jBPM and Openshift

I will be in Lisbon, Portugal on Feb 16 at the Portugal JUG with sessions on  jBPM and OpenShift. The abstracts are below and will soon be published on their JUG site, but it is in Portuguese so you might need some translation help!

JBoss jBPM 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 life-cycles. 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.

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!

The schedule is shaping up like this:

  • 17h30 - Welcome and registration
  • 18h00 - JBoss Brings More Power to your Business Processes
  • 19h00 - An OpenShift Primer for Developers to get your Code into the Cloud
