JUDCon 2012 Boston - OpenShift State of the Union / OpenShift Primer

Boston, June 25-26

The call for papers is open, but not official on the website yet. I thought I would submit my sessions before I get snowed under (really, it is below zero here in NL all week, skating on the canals, snow today...). Hope to get accepted and see you all there!

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.

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!

OpenShift State of the Union, brought to you by JBoss

It has been a marriage made in heaven. JBoss has brought the enterprise application platform and JEE to the OpenShift PaaS for all of your development tasks. It is much more than a simple application server though, JBoss provides a multitude of projects that cover everything from mobile, business process management, web development, support tooling to inter connectivity with other development languages like Ruby.

This session will take you through an overview of what OpenShift has to offer right now, how to get started, and then provide some highlights of the various projects that you can now access within the JBoss community. Bring you laptop and follow along as we help you get started in mobile development with Aerogears, Ruby Java connectivity with TorqueBox, process development with tooling from jBPM and much more. These will all be real world projects put on display for you with code you can access live during this session!
