This track provides overview and deep dive sessions that cover the products, features, and technologies for datacenter modernization and consolidation. Example topics include: storage migration, performance optimization, management of data in distributed applications, and middleware integration. Attendees will learn how to enable lines of business to rapidly respond to business events in an automated manner, automate rules-driven business processes, and integrate applications, data, and embedded devices across all cloud environments.
You’re hearing a lot about big data these days. And big data and the technologies that store and process it, like Hadoop, aren’t just new data silos. You might be looking to integrate big data with existing enterprise information systems to gain better understanding of your business. You want to take informed action.
During this session, we’ll demonstrate how Red Hat JBoss Data Virtualization can integrate with Hadoop through Hive and provide users easy access to data. You’ll learn how Red Hat JBoss Data Virtualization:
We’ll also provide typical uses cases and examples and a demonstration of the integration of Hadoop sentiment analysis with sales data.

This track covers application development tools and technologies. Example topics include: best practices, methodologies, and techniques for building applications in C, C++, Java, PHP/LAMP, Ruby, Node.js, and many other commonly used developer tools and languages, and new development approaches such as Platform-as-a-Service. Attendees will also learn how the tools that build, run, and scale applications are evolving.
More than 5 billion people spend an average of 2 hours a day using their mobile phones to bank, shop, reserve hotel rooms, socialize, and more. This challenges companies to migrate their traditional Java EE applications in order to address the demands of mobile and tablet users.
In this session, you’ll learn about some of the approaches to migrate a traditional Java EE application to mobile using specifications like RESTful, Context and Dependency Injection (CDI), Enterprise Java Beans (EJB3), and messaging from the Java Platform, Enterprise Edition (Java EE) 6 for server-side services. You’ll also hear about various choices of client-side technologies, which depend on key differentiators between mobile native, mobile web, and mobile hybrid applications.

This track features sessions covering the trends and strategies driving the future of enterprise computing. Example topics include: big data, mobile, software-defined storage, and intelligent systems. Attendees will be among the first to know about what's coming from Red Hat and how to better plan for shifts in the IT landscape.
As mobile continues to revolutionize client development, application platforms need to include mobile-specific technologies like push notifications, offline support, and data synchronization. But the idea that you need completely new technologies such as a mobile enterprise application platform (MEAP) is misguided. Developers need to update existing platforms to include capabilities, tools, and techniques to meet the mobile challenge.
In this session, you’ll:
We’ll discuss the Red Hat projects and technologies that make this possible, including AeroGear, Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio, and OpenShift by Red Hat. And you’ll hear how our plans for mobile in 2014 will help you mobilize your modern middleware.

With new NoSQL stores arriving to the market frequently, choosing the right datastore can be a tough challenge. Each store provides its own low-level APIs, and migrating from one store to another is anything but simple.
Hibernate Object/Grid Mapper (OGM) provides easy access to NoSQL stores via the well-known Java Persistence API (JPA). Java developers who know how to use JPA also know how to access their favorite NoSQL stores.
In this session, you’ll learn:
This session is code-focused, with at least half the time spent coding and running tests in Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio. You’ll leave the session with a solid understanding of when to use (or not use) Hibernate OGM to handle everyday NoSQL challenges.
Topics: Big data, Clustering, Development tools, Flexibility, JBoss Community, OpenShift by Red Hat, Performance, Portability, Projects, Red Hat Cloud, Red Hat JBoss Data Grid, Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio, Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform, Red Hat JBoss Middleware, Reliability, Scalability

Co-located with Red Hat Summit, DevNation offers an agenda tailored to application developers and maintainers who build with open source. Attendees from both events will be able to attend sessions in this track, which will offer sessions relevant to both audiences.
How easily can you add your own custom tooling to your favorite integrated development environment (IDE)? JBoss Forge, a JBoss Community project, allows developers to add their own useful extensions to the tools they love and share them with others. JBoss Forge is not only a rapid application development tool, but a platform for creating reusable tools that can make you and your entire group more effective.
In this session, attendees will learn about:
After attending this session, you should feel familiar with Forge and the value it offers for rapid application development and operational efficiency improvement. You’ll also be able to use Forge to promote your own products, processes, and performance.

Businesses must clearly define their business processes, and quickly respond to new challenges. To do so, business analysts, developers, and end users need the tools to create, understand, analyze, and execute business processes.
In this session, Kris Verlaenen will demonstrate the capabilities of jBPM 6 and dive deeper into some of its core capabilities. You’ll learn how to:

Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform and Wildfly (the JBoss Community project previously known as “JBoss Application Server”) have redefined how people view Java EE and enterprise middleware. You don’t have to choose between lightweight and nimble or scalable and robust. These platforms deliver a lightweight core architecture with modular enterprises services; and they have allowed users to re-imagine what they can do with Java middleware.
As we move toward another major release of Red Hat JBoss EAP, we invite our community of users to the WildFly/EAP team to discuss the future of application platforms and help us shape the future.
