There’s big news coming out of KubeCon Seattle today: our team is donating a keystone project to the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), ensuring that project’s longevity and success. The open source etcd project has been donated and accepted into the CNCF, a neutral foundation housed under The Linux Foundation to drive the adoption of cloud native systems.
Open sourcing code is always at the forefront of Red Hat’s goals, whether we start new projects like etcd, which has been open since it launched in 2013, or opening projects whenever we acquire software that is closed and proprietary. We have done it so many times it is second nature. We open sourced oVirt after we acquired Qumranet, Aerogear after picking up FeedHenry, and Ansible Tower after adding Ansible to our ranks. We are firmly committed to the open source model of collaboration and innovation, so when we do have closed code in our portfolio, it’s not a question of “if” we will open source the software, but generally “when.”
The Data a znalosti & WIKT 2018 conference is rather small regional event for young researchers and PhD students. Its focus is on data, analytics, machine learning, and other related topics. The program of the conference is mostly academia-oriented and presented topics rather theoretic. Red Hat was a sponsor of the conference, which took place in Brno on October 11 and 12.
Continuing our preview series of the speakers of the inaugural DevConf.us, today we’re sharing an interview with Og Maciel, Senior Manager of Quality Engineering for the Satellite team at Red Hat.
Maciel’s August 18 talk will focus on an introduction to Selenium, the portable testing framework for web apps, and how beginners can get started using the Selenium IDE.
Open source technology is now mainstream. Technologies large and small impacting people all over the world are powered by open source platforms, libraries, and backends. There’s an urgent problem, though: open source has become synonymous with shockingly poor user experience (UX), reducing its impact and adoption.
In this interview, Red Hat’s Máirín Duffy outlines her open source experience and how she is bringing UX solutions to the world of open source software during her August 19 talk at DevConf.us.
Next month, the very first DevConf.us conference will launch at the Boston University in the historic city of Boston, USA. This annual, free, Red Hat-sponsored technology conference for community project and professional contributors to Free and Open Source technologies is an engineering conference organized by engineers.
As we get ready for the August 17-19 event, we have reached out to many of the speakers to find out what expertise they will be bringing to the Back Bay.
