DevConf.us 2018 - Process driven development, cloud, containers and more...

devconf.us 2018
DevConf.us 2018 is the 1st annual, free, Red Hat sponsored technology conference for community project and professional contributors to Free and Open Source technologies at the Boston University in the historic city of Boston, USA.

As a big fan of this type of grass roots conference, I'm supporting by putting in a few talks and a workshop hoping to foster some of that exchange that's open source fundamentals.

Here are the details around when and where you can find me.

When: Friday, August 17 to Sunday, August 19, 2018

Venue: Boston University, George Sherman Union Building

You should consider attending this DevConf event if you are:
  • A developer
  • A technology architect
  • An IT consultant
  • An IT student or a teacher from an IT university/faculty
  • Or simply an IT enthusiast interested in the latest trends in open source and emerging digital technologies
Talks, presentations, and workshops will all be in English. I submitted the following sessions:
