DevNation 2016 Kubernetes CodeStarter with Google Cloud Platform

rhd_newsletter_may2016_300x600Join Red Hat and Google for an evening for code hackers. Yes, there will be fabulous food and drink but more importantly we are going to get seriously hands-on with microservices, Linux containers (Docker), Kubernetes+Openshift and Google Cloud Platform. We will be exploring numerous microservices coding patterns and leveraging the power of Kubernetes+OpenShift for managing those microservices at scale. This session will primarily be a series of hands-on exercises but will also include experimentation time. In addition to the great experience, you’ll walk away with some pretty good swag, too.

*What is a CodeStarter? It’s like a hackfest but without the competitive part. It’s still an evening of hacking/coding with lots of tasty food and beverages (beer, etc.). And as we mentioned, good swag.

WHEN:  Monday, June 27, 6:00 pm, San Francisco, CA, USA.

DevNation 2016 – IoT workshop – sponsored by Eurotech

We are pleased to announce that Eurotech, a global leader in connecting distributed devices that make up the IoT, is sponsoring the Tuesday evening IoT technical workshop at DevNation 2016.  As a participant, you will not only walk away with a lot more IoT knowledge, but with your very own TI SensorTag.  :)

IoT RHIoTTag evening workshop

Join us as we utilize a custom Texas Instruments’ SensorTag – we like to call them RHIoTTag – to build an interactive game that integrates with the Eurotech gateway and cloud hosted MQTT server. You will learn about integrating IoT Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) sensor data into your middleware using MQTT, an ISO standard publish-subscribe based “light weight” messaging protocol.

About Eurotech:

Eurotech solutions combine hardware, firmware, operating systems, M2M middleware and device cloud services that drive business success. A global leader in connecting distributed devices that make up the Internet of Things, Eurotech collaborates with customers, partners, and integrators to bring rugged, reliable and cost effective data management solutions to market.

Logistics:

Full stack development with Node.js and NoSQL

Speaker:  Arun Gupta (@arungupta) Nic Raboy (@nraboy) of Couchbase

Abstract:  In this session, we’ll talk about what’s different about this generation of web applications and how a solid development approach must consider the latency, throughput, and interactivity demand by users across mobile devices, web browsers, and Internet of Things (IoT). We’ll demonstrate how to include Couchbase in such applications to support a flexible data model and the easy scalability required for modern development. We’ll demonstrate how to create a full stack application focusing on the CEAN stack, which is composed of Couchbase, Express Framework, AngularJS, and Node.js.

From Object-Oriented to Functional-Domain Modeling

Speaker:  Mario Fusco, Red Hat

Abstract:  The main consequence of the introduction of lambda expressions in Java 8 is the possibility of conveniently mixing the object-oriented and the functional paradigms. It’s still uncommon to see functions used together with data in the business domain model. For example, it’s usual to pass a list of data to a function that processes them, but there are cases when you may want to create a list of functions and pass a single data through all of them. Immutable objects leads to an inherently thread-safe domain model. Functions often compose better than objects. Side-effect-free code allows better reusability.

In this session, we’re:

  • Not going to compare object-oriented and functional programming
  • Are going to show how the two styles can be combined to take advantage of the good parts of each
  • Going to look at practical examples to distill the essence of functional programming

Fabric8-ing Continuous Improvement with Kubernetes and Jenkins Workflow

Speakers:  James Rawlings, Red Hat; James Strachan, Red Hat

Abstract:  Using Docker for building and packaging small discrete microservices, and Kubernetes to ensure they stay running and gaining OOTB service discovery, significantly reduces the challenges of having a consistent way to build, package, and run applications. Then, there’s how to develop, test, promote, release, support, and improve our container-based architectures, taking an idea from inception to repeatable releasing in a live environment. In this session, we’ll look at how fabric8, which runs on top of OpenShift 3 by Red Hat and Kubernetes, uses Docker and Jenkins workflow for pipeline orchestration to provide an extensible OOTB CD solution. Fabric8 significantly simplifies the creation of new projects with a one-click setup and the wiring-together of tooling such and version control systems, artifact repositories, and release pipelines. With human approval, automated integration testing, ChatOps, environment + pipeline visualisation, commit traceability, and a developer experience that helps teams deliver value faster, we’ll see how the strength of the open source community works together to provide a consistent approach to building and releasing software for new, cloud-based microservices.

Drools 7.x Happenings and Roadmap

Speaker:  Mark Proctor, Red Hat

Abstract:  Do you want to catch up on the latest developments in the Drools community for the 7.x series? In this session, we’ll look at changes to both the workbench and the core engine—what’s available now and what’s in the roadmap. The 7.x workbench has had a big usability revamp with improved advanced editors and automated deployments to the execution server. We’ll look at a “low code” example to see the authoring, deployment, and usage of decision service. This example will integrate the new forms and application directory functionality. The workbench is now highly customizable and we’ll demonstrate how to add new custom editors and the mash up capability of the workbench to easily add new pages and components for your domain. The 7.x engine delivers a new hybrid reasoning capability to make it much easier to work reactively with nested objects, providing a new XPath inspired notation for list comprehension, making things much more natural for Java developers. And it now has a pluggable layer for different knowledge types, and we’ll discuss and demonstrate how to integrate another subsystem such as a Bayesian Network. We’ll also demonstrate the new capabilities for default and exception rules and cover pojo-rules that make use of Java 8 lambda for rules in pure Java.

DevOps in the Enterprise: Organizational Change for High-Performance IT

Speakers:  Alanna Brown, Puppet Labs; Nigel Kersten, Puppet Labs

Abstract:  Over the last few years, we’ve seen rapid adoption of DevOps practices in enterprise environments with varying degrees of success. From our extensive experience with customers, and from the last 2 years worth of data from Puppet Labs’ State of DevOps Survey, a set of common factors have emerged as part of the most successful organizational transformations toward high-performing IT departments. In this session, we’ll cover these common attributes and refute the most common myths and blockers that we’ve seen negatively impact transformations.

Developing with OpenShift Without the Build Waits

Speaker:  Peter Larsen, Red Hat

Abstract:  As application systems move to Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) environments and every source code change results in a full build, a simple change can easily take minutes. This is much longer than developers are willing to wait to verify a change. And working in the cloud shouldn’t mean loss of control and visibility into how an application is working. In this session, we’ll cover how OpenShift by Red Hat works closely with Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio to let you push code directly to a container, see your changes as you make them, debug live in deployment, and much more.

Developer meet designer

Speakers:  Andres Galante, Red Hat; Brian Leathem, Red Hat

Abstract:  This presentation will take developers behind the scenes of the Keynote Demo to showcase how designers and a developers work together to achieve outstanding results. In this presentation, we’ll identify the gap between designers and developers, and walk you through an actual example of how to build bridges that increase trust in your products. You’ll learn about:

  • UX basics
  • Design within open source communities
  • Understanding the problems between developers and designers
  • The advantages (and disadvantages) of working with a designer
  • Coping with common pitfalls and false assumptions
  • Specific CSS and JS techniques used during the Keynote demo visualization

You’ll leave knowing that UX goes beyond the UI, with a better understanding of why working with a designer is important, and how to work together successfully.
