Topics presented at previous events

Beauty of the Container Revolution

Ian Lawson, Principal Specialist Solution Architect at Red Hat, presented the Beauty of the Container Revolution:

"With the advent of OCP4 and the push within Red Hat to encourage developers through opinionated tooling to develop 'Cloud Natively', it is time to look in depth at the advantages and efficiencies provided by embracing the Container Revolution!”

This session included a discussion and sneak peak at the forthcoming major release of OpenShift Container Platform v4.0 and the future direction of the product.

AppDev in the Cloud Workshop

Eric Schabell, Global Technology Evangelist Director at Red Hat, will be hosting an AppDev in the Cloud workshop:

"Ready to get hands-on with AppDev in the Cloud with container based services? This workshop will let you experience the wonders of Red Hat's open technologies for cloud-based container application development, letting you integrate multiple services into a polyglot cloud solution.

In this workshop you're a developer working for Destinaisa, a travel agency that needs to set up its online bookings application backend services. You'll be given the OpenShift Container Platform, then you’ll install JBoss BRMS to work in the Destinasia discount rules. Once they are completed, you leverage Ansible playbooks to see infrastructure automation in action.

Each playbook will deploy a new container-based service to support flight, hotel, car and discount rule queries from your application. In total you will be running 6 container based applications or services in a private PaaS before testing this solution with a REST client, sending a booking and verifying the discounts provided by the rules you implemented. Become the cloud hero you always dreamed of as you learn with this workshop!"
