Welcome to another edition of the JBoss Editorial, our regular dip into the JBoss Communities to discover topics of interest to you all.
Red Hat Summit is finally here!
Next week sees many of us returning to San Francisco’s Moscone Center for this year's Red Hat Summit and OpenShift Commons events, taking place from Monday 7th May through to Thursday 10th May. If you are visiting the area or attending either event then arrange a meet up with any of the developers and talk about your favourite projects.
While at Summit you may be interested in attending a hands-on lab to learn more about technologies which interest you, this year we have labs covering Cloud Native Applications, running OpenShift Container Platform on Azure and others. Siamak, one of the presenters of the Cloud Native Applications lab, has a more detailed introduction covering the lab and what sessions you can expect.
Christian Posta will be giving a number of sessions at Red Hat Summit including
- Istio with Zach Butcher
- Evaluating when you should move to microservices
- Messaging patterns, Event Driver Architecture and Functions as a Service with Marius Bogoevici
and finally a panel session with Louis Ryan and William Morgan discussing Service Meshes.
Eric Schabell, author of Effective Business Process Management with JBoss jBPM, will be joining a number of Red Hat authors during the week to meet developers, chat and sign copies of their books at the DevZone. Stop by and meet your favourite author!

At Devoxx France Galder first teamed up with Clement Escoffier from the Vert.x team to deliver a 3 hour session on streaming data analysis, they both then teamed up with Google's Ray Tsang to deliver a 3 hour streaming data hands-on workshop.
