This year Red Hat Summit will be held on the West Coast in San Francisco from 11 - 17 April. I have been invited this year to speak on several interesting topics, which will take the form of a session and a lab workshop.

Attached to this is the all new community event, DevNation, that you won't want to miss.

My sessions and lab are as follows, check the Red Hat Summit schedule for exact day, time, and location to be posted soon.

The JBoss Cloud Guide to all things xPaaS

Whether your business applications are based on Java EE 6, PHP, or Ruby, cloud environments are turning out to be perfect for business development. There are plenty of cloud and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) options to choose from, but where do you start?
In this session, Eric Schabell will provide examples, demos, and practical tips for ratcheting up your knowledge of open source, middleware-based xPaaS functionality. Not only will you be able to set up diverse PaaS solutions, you’ll also learn how to use your existing application with the product of your choice. Using OpenShift by Red Hat, our PaaS, we’ll show examples with Red Hat ‘s BPM and mobile solutions, SwitchYard, Opta Planner, and Red Hat JBoss Portal, in just minutes.
Join us to learn more about the practicality of Red Hat’s xPaaS vision and the role Red Hat JBoss Middleware can play.

Lab: Automate Your Business with JBoss Integration & BPM

Both business process management (BPM) and business rules management (BRM) technologies have emerged as powerful approaches to building agile business solutions, fostering true collaboration between business and IT stakeholders. Red Hat is leading the way with a new generation of open source BRMS and BPM platforms.
In this lab, we’ll spend a couple hours hunkered down with Red Hat JBoss BRMS and Red Hat’s BPM solution. You’ll:
  • Learn to automate your business with flexible, rules-based, process-driven business applications.
  • Work on existing functional projects that you’ll be required to extend, using new components such as the model designer, form designer, process designer, and rules tooling.
  • Be able to recreate several complete demo projects by the end of the lab and you’ll have the material to extend them with various real life business aspects.
