This year, Red Hat is organizing DevNation for the first time (April 13-17, San Francisco), a new open source, polyglot conference for application developers and maintainers. It combines for example the old JUDCon and CamelOne conferences, but offers top notch keynotes, sessions, labs, hackfests, and panels geared for those who build (with) open source. It is _the_ place for a developer to get excellent technical information from the experts directly, and/or hang out with pizza and beer !
Co-located is Red Hat Summit (April 14-17, San Francisco), meant for anyone looking to exponentially increase their understanding of open source technology and identify powerful solutions for their business needs (although typically at a slightly higher level compared to DevNation). From community enthusiasts and system administrators to enterprise architects and CxOs, there are sessions and tracks for each level of interest and need.
This year, I'll be doing a "BRMS 6" presentation (available for both DevNation and Red Hat Summit attendees), giving a quick overview of the BRMS 6.0 features, but also sharing a lot of technical information on some of the most important new features, such as the new convention and configuration approach to building and deploying.
But this is just one tiny part of the huge amount of interesting keynotes, presentations, workshops, etc. you'll be able to attend. Looking forward to speaking to some of you, or maybe even touching some code during the hackfest (bring your laptop and we'll get you started)!
Drop in Clinic
There will also be another all day drop in clinic, where Dr Kris Verlaenen (jBPM project lead) and I will be hanging out and coding all day. So you can drop in an hang out with us. Either to code, or ask questions or just admire Kris' big brain.
