Community Will Make Big Splash at Red Hat Summit

Summit logo As Red Hat preps for Red Hat Summit in the venerable Moscone Center next month, the Open Source and Standards team is preparing to be a strong presence at the event with our Community Central in the Main Expo Hall and a separate Open Source and Community track within the sessions.

The Community Central area will feature a lounge and plenty of space to interact with the Fedora and CentOS projects, which will anchor the space. But projects like RDO, Gluster, Ceph, oVirt, and Project Atomic will also have a home in Community Central, just to name a few.

As mentioned before, Red Hat Summit will feature a stand-alone Community track, where attendees will learn about many of the projects in which Red Hat is involved, as well as get educated about best practices within the wider open source ecosystem.

I will let my colleagues talk up their respective projects’ sessions, but I wanted to take a moment and highlight the sessions that our friends and colleagues from outside Red Hat are presenting in the Community track.

This is by no means all of the great content in the Community track, and there will be more upstream-oriented content throughout the Summit. We are looking forward to rolling out the red carpet for all of our guests at Community Central from June 28-30!
