Evangelist's Corner - The Red Hat Summit
As mentioned above, the Red Hat Summit is around the corner! It's less than a couple of month away! If you have the chance to attend it, you should definitely checked out this Ultimate Guide to Red Hat Summit 2018 Labs on Hands-on with Linux Containers done by Eric. D Schabell. This will help start preparing for the event, especially if you want to focus on Docker container.
As often mentioned here, the Hibernate community is a huge part of the JBoss Community but also its own thriving ecosystem on its own. That's why there is nothing better than this monthly Hibernate Community Newsletter (05/2018) to keep up with them...
Everything Eclipse Vert.x
Vert.x ist a trending technology for a little while, but maybe you did not have time (yet) to jump on the wagon. Well, you're in for a treat, as Clément Escoffier just released a very nice Introduction to Eclipse Vert.x - My First Vert.x Application ! Go check it !

Indeed, even if Winter is still crippling the Northern Hemisphere, Spring are Summer are getting closer and closer, which also means that the Google Summer of Code 2018 is also coming.

And as always, last week so a fair amount of releases from some rather important project of the JBoss community:
- Hibernate Search 5.9.1.Final was just released
- Infinispan: Final release for Hotrod clients C++ and C# 8.2.0 are out!
- Announcing WildFly Swarm 2018.3.3

Before concluding the editorial, let's leave a bit the Java ecosystem and take a look at what happened around it last week. In this regard, I think that the following announcement of pretty cool: Node.js General Availability in Red Hat OpenShift Application Runtimes. If you are interested in Node.js application I think you will find that having runtimes on OpenShift for you is going to be an excellent way to put your apps in the cloud.
