I would like to invite everyone to a couple of developer-oriented workshops about the tools in the newest Drools and jBPM releases (6 series). The main idea of these workshops is to introduce developers to the new set of features and tooling provided by the projects.
Michael Anstis and Mauricio Salatino (Salaboy) will be showing how to configure and set up your working environment to work, customize and contribute to these projects.
We will be trying to cover the following topics:
General Overview about the tools
Distributions and Modules
How to setup your working environment
How to extend/customize the tooling
They actually released a teaser example as well, a process used to manage requirements in a sprint:
If you are brave enough and want to know the low level technical details of the tooling, please bring your laptop and be prepared to download the code and compile it in your own environment. We will assist you in the process and give you all the pointers to fix issues or provide new features.
Michael will be in charge of the Drools Side of the platform and Salaboy will be in charge of the BPM side of the tooling. If you are planning to start using these tools, we encourage you to attend to see the new features and get a high level overview about all the new things that are coming with the new version.
Seats are very limited, and because the workshops are for free you will need to get in touch with us (salaboy at redhat dot com) if you are planning to attend. We will probably send you details of what you need to download before coming to the workshop so as not to depend on the local internet connection.
