Red Hat Summit 2018 theme
This years Red Hat Summit will be in San Francisco, CA from May 8-10, 2018.

It will be located at the Moscone Center and has expanded to include more room for sessions, labs, lightning talks, panels and the pavilion.

You can register online and the agenda will be posted soon since the call for papers has closed.

This year I'm part of the organization committee that's providing the entire labs experience at Red Hat Summit. Since it's such a massive effort to organize, I've backed down my normal array of submissions to work with a few select presenters. Below are my submissions, a session and a lab, but there might be a few more small mini-theater type of talks as these tend to be arranged closer to the actual event.

Looking forward to seeing you there, be sure to stop by or find me on social media to grab some time to chat. I am always excited to meet fellow enthusiast who are excited about OpenSource technologies, Cloud technologies and of course anything related to Business Process Management.
