DevNation, the open source, polyglot conference, is co-located with Red Hat Summit again this year, will take place on June 21-25, 2015 in Boston. There is a lot of community and open source involved as usual. You’ll find a mix of:
- Technical sessions.
- Hands-on labs.
- Birds-of-a-feather panels specifically for developers.
- Late-night hacking events.
Well known keynote-speakers include Venkat Subramaniam (Agile Developer, INC.), Brianna Wu (CEO of GIANT SPACEKAT) and Felix Ehm (CERN). "One thing that ties us together is the passion we share for programming." explains Venkat in a supporting interview which got published on the DevNation Blog. This is an overall theme for the second edition of the conference this year. Beside an even broader coverage of different technologies and JVM based languages, the newly formed external program committee was a big help in putting together a compelling agenda. Some of well-known speakers in the Java community:

- Tonya Rae Moore (@TonyaRaeMoore)

The location will be the The Hynes Convention Center in Boston. There will be plenty of space for all the amazing sessions. We have a lot of cool things planned: Hacking events, Birds-Of-A-Feather sessions, an evening event, keynotes, plenty of room for networking and discussions. If you want to get a first impression about what all this awesomeness looks like, feel free to look at some of the recorded sessions from last year.
