JBoss World – 2008 – Orlando, FL

Modernize your IT. Transform your business.

JBoss World Orlando is the hot place to be and be seen this winter, when much of the rest of the country will be in deep freeze. It is the world’s largest gathering for users of JBoss, Red Hat, and other related open source solutions. The event’s comprehensive agenda will focus on the technologies, best practices, and industry insights to help IT executives, architects, and developers make better decisions about open source and be successful in driving business transformation in their organizations.


This year’s agenda will concentrate on five tracks aligned to the technology and business areas that will help you modernize your IT infrastructure.

* Core Platform Technologies – Covers the essential technologies underpinning your application infrastructure.
* Next- Generation Web Technologies – Learn about emerging technologies, frameworks, and designs enabling the Web as a computing platform.
* Services and Integration – Covers the technologies, standards, and best practices to guide your shift to a service-oriented architecture (SOA).
* Optimize, Secure, Manage – Covers the technologies and solutions that extend the lifecycle of your applications.
* Executive Insights – Covers the business trends and industry developments that shape the way we think about IT and computing.

In addition, you are invited to participate in an array of “Birds-of-a-Feather” discussions throughout the conference.
