Kevin Dubois
Red Hat

Kevin Dubois is a Developer Advocate at Red Hat. He previously worked as a (Lead) Software Engineer at a variety of organizations ranging from small startups to large US enterprises and even the Belgian public sector. In between fixing production bugs at 4AM and fighting the business to allow time to reduce technical debt, he would contemplate on how to make life easier for developers. This is why he is now on a mission to supercharge developer productivity while making coding fun again, the Open Source way. He is currently particularly excited about Quarkus, Event & Domain Driven Architectures, Serverless and Red Hat’s developer-focused Kubernetes solution, Openshift.

Serverless Integration with Camel Quarkus
Conference (BEGINNER level)
Room 10

When you build an application you will undoubtedly need to integrate it with other applications and systems. The Apache Camel project’s goal is to simplify the way we do integration, using the book “Enterprise Integration Patterns” as the gold standard. 

Apache Camel has been around for a while, but it is more relevant now than it has ever been. In this session we’ll show you how Camel can leverage Quarkus’ fast startup time and developer experience. 

As a bonus it can make use of technologies like serverless computing (eg. Knative) and data streaming (eg. Kafka), to remove bottlenecks, integrate faster and better than ever before, and save resources and money on top of it.

Attendees should come away from this event with the following:

  • Understanding of what Serverless Enterprise Integration means and how to deliver better software faster
  • How serverless technologies like Knative can optimize resource usage and scale rapidly to respond to fluctuating demand
  • How the next iteration of Apache Camel (based on Quarkus) can leverage serverless computing and event driven architectures to do integration when and where it’s needed
