As Andrew mentioned in his blog, this conference is:

A unification and expansion of individual events we’ve had in the past (e.g. JUDCon, CamelOne, Developer Exchange).  Our modus operandi:

  • Grow open source
  • Cater to a highly-technical audience of software and maintenance engineers
  • Extend our reach to communities outside Red Hat’s sphere of influence

There are no set “themes” or “tracks” but here is general guideline on what we are looking for:

  • Enterprise application development
    (e.g. concurrent, multi-user applications with data stores, security, transactions)
  • Front-end development
    (e.g. display technologies, client-side scripting and layout, templating engines)
  • Mobile development
    (e.g. Android, iOS, Cordova, HTML5 for mobile)
  • Big data
    (e.g. RDBMS and NoSQL, persistent storage and associated computational problems with large data stores)
  • Application integration
    (e.g. Service-oriented architecture)
  • DevOps and continuous delivery
    (e.g. build and deployment environments, administration and management)
  • Performance and tuning
    (e.g. analysis and techniques to get the best out of your applications)
  • Platform development
    (e.g. C++ and *nix applications)
  • Cool stuff
    (Any helpful bits you’d love to share with your peers)
