Full-On (line) Speakers List Announced for IOTC 2008

The Irish Open Source Technology Conference has today announced its speaker line-up for the event June 19th - 20th.

The committee of the Irish Open Source Technology Conference, representatives of www.IrishDev.com (the organisers), The Irish Linux User Group,, Python Ireland User Group,, Dublin Java User Group,, Irish PHP User Group, Ruby Ireland User Group and Open Ireland, the association dedicated to promoting open source to businesses in Ireland, have selected an impressive line-up of international people (United States, Canada, England, Poland, Wales and Ireland) to speak at the event.
Barry Alistair of IrishDev.com commended the committee "the members of the IOTC committee have attracted a great line-up for the Irish tech community, and I believe we'll have a full house in Dublin's CineWorld complex between the 18th and 20th June."

He continued, "We are filming and streaming the IOTC sessions live on our website (http://iotc.firstport.ie) to open up access to people who live abroad or simply cannot make it to Dublin for the event - of course, the online interaction does not afford the same benefits as being in the same room as the speakers and other delegates, but at least people need not miss a minute."

  • There and Back Again: The MongoDB Cloud Story
    Before it was a database company, MongoDB was a cloud company. Founded in 2007 and originally known as 10gen, the company originally intended to build a Java cloud platform. After building a database it called MongoDB, the company realized that the infrastructure software it had built to support its product was more popular than the product itself, and the PaaS company pivoted to become a database company – eventually taking the obvious step of renaming itself to reflect its new purpose.

Red Hat Summit

  • Red Hat Summit Advocates the Power of Participation
    Red Hat hosted its annual Red Hat Summit customer event June 28-30 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, with a theme of harnessing the power of participation. Once again, the DevNation developer event, which is the successor to JBoss World, was co-located with Red Hat Summit. For JBoss, 2016 is a particularly significant year as it marks 10 years since Red Hat acquired it. At DevNation, Red Hat announced the new JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (EAP) 7 release, providing new cloud-enhanced capabilities for Red Hat's flagship middleware platform. JBoss is now also working to help enable Java for the container era, with the launch of the MicroProfile Project, an effort to optimize enterprise Java for a microservices architecture. Java wasn't the only focus of DevNation this year either, as Microsoft took center stage too, announcing the availability of its .NET Core for Red Hat Enterprise Linux. In this slide show, eWEEK takes a look at some of the highlights of the Red Hat Summit and DevNation 2016 events.
  • How Red Hat is tailoring OpenStack to fit … everyone

  • New technologies foster an open-source environment
    In 2007, when 3scale, Inc. was founded, some people thought it was crazy to be investing so much time and energy into API. But Steven Willmott, CEO of 3scale, Inc., said that even at that time his team knew that the future was API-driven, and they wanted to help that happen.
