By the time you will read our editorial, there will be more or less than 24 hours left until the debut of DevNation, the open source, polyglot conference for application developers and maintainers. Its packed agenda features a stellar cast of technology experts, and it is collocated with the Red Hat Summit. So whether, you're packing for San Francisco, or are there already for the conference, we wish you a fun time attending the talks and mingling with your fellow developers. And if you're missing this year's edition (like for example I unfortunately do), don't worry - follow our upcoming posts and you will stay in the know, as we'll keep you updated with blog posts, articles and news, and you'll get to share even some of the fun!
