Red Hat APIs and Microservices Executive Seminar and Technical Workshop


We are entering a new era of microservices and containers which is reshaping how enterprise IT is delivering services with a focus on agility. As a result, developing, integrating, and connecting smaller discrete services has become more complex. Application programming interfaces (APIs) are increasingly being used to unlock core systems, collaborate with partners and reach customers in new ways. A platform architectural approach provides a foundation to deliver innovative solutions across today's hybrid environments.

Join Red Hat and OSI Consulting for a no-cost, 1-day, hands-on technical workshop. Take a journey to agile integration by taking back more control of your applications. Speed up your software life cycle by adopting microservices in your integration, modularizing solutions with APIs, being cloud ready by containerizing applications, and using DevOps to increase the speed of your development cycle to become truly agile. You'll also participate in some hands-on labs, based on case studies and led by experienced solution architects.

High-level Agenda:

  • Introduction to modern integration architecture
  • How microservices and cloud have transformed integration
  • Integration with Apache Camel & OpenShift demo
  • API-first and container labs featuring Red Hat® JBoss® Fuse, Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform, and Red Hat 3scale API Management

Who should attend?

  • Developers
  • Technical Architects
  • Integration Architects
  • Development team leads

What you need to bring:

Please bring your own laptop to the workshop. Your laptop needs to have:

  • 20GB free hard drive space
  • 8GB free memory
  • 2.5 GHz or faster processor
  • Administration Rights
  • Oracle VirtualBox 5.2.x with the extension pack
  • WiFi enabled

Please make sure VirtualBox is installed and working on your laptop. We found that 5.2.x with the extension pack worked the best and is located here. If you are having trouble with Windows you may need to turn off hyper-v and adjust your BIOS to allow virtualization.
