Devoxx Belgium 2013 proposals for Rock Star and OpenShift submitted

After getting a talk selected last year and having to pass it off to a colleague, I am excited to be heading down to Belgium once again.

I have submitted the following two talks, hope to get the chance to talk to you all in November. There is a lot going on in Antwerp during Devoxx so be sure to head on down there for this mega Java conference from November 11 - 15, 2013.

OpenShift Primer - get your Applications into the Cloud
Ever wondered about the new Cloud offerings out there? What is a PaaS? What is this thing called OpenShift?

Whether your business is running on applications based on Java EE6, PHP or Ruby, the cloud is turning out to be the perfect environment for developing your business. 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 your existing application written in the language of your choice - Java, Ruby, PHP, Perl or Python, with the Java project of your choice deployed into the OpenShift PaaS in just minutes. All this and without having to rewrite your app to get it to work the way the cloud provider thinks your app should work.

If you want to learn about OpenShift PaaS and see how investing an hour of your time can change everything you thought you knew about the Cloud!

(Speaker author e-book: OpenShift Primer, will give away free copies in session)


Do you want to be a Devoxx Rock Star?
So you have seen the perfect Java project for your current development problem. Now what?

You have seen amazing demos done by the core developers of these projects, but you want to create your own awesome demo to convince your friends, team and boss that this is exactly what they need. We can help you to become a local Devoxx Rock Star with this session. We will provide you with the tools to setup repeatable demos and provide you with guidelines to allow you to consistently amaze and dazzle. This session will walk through three example integration demonstrations that span multiple Java components and are setup from scratch in minutes.
