Devoxx 2013 impressions of a JBoss OpenShift Primer

This year spending a few days at Devoxx 2013 in Antwerp with some of the JBoss friends I have, both old and new.

This event is amazing for the volume of attendees, 3500, and the quality of the talks is only paralleled by the value of networking with all of your fellow Java contacts.

I spent time chatting with Ray Ploski, Mike Piech, Koen Aers, Dan Allan, Dimitris Andradis, Emmanuel Bernard, Xavier Coulon, Tim Fox, Arun Gupta, Gavin King, Jason Porter, Burr Sutter, the local SA team, many customers, and a vast array of partner contacts.

I sat in on a few sessions but I had the most fun chatting with customers, partners, and users of the JBoss projects and products. There were also a nice set of mini JBoss sessions given throughout the conference days at the Red Hat booth.

My talk was in room 9, a large movie theater with about 300 attendees.

The following is a collection of pictures to give you a bit of a feel for the Devoxx experience.

There were also various mini sessions held at the Red Hat booth throughout each day. I was scheduled to give a talk on Wednesday, but something came up that prevented me from making my slot. I post the slides here for your enjoyment none the less.

See you next year at Devoxx 2014!
