Red Hat Summit

Location : Moscone West 747 Howard St, San Francisco, CA 94103

Why attend?
Red Hat Summit is for anyone interested in open source. It just so happens our open source solutions power 90% of Fortune 500 companies, and we’d love to show you why.

Red Hat Summit is all about open source. This year, we’re focusing on the endless possibilities of open source. The ideas worth exploring.

Because what draws us together each year isn’t the technology alone; it’s what we can do with it. Open source technology gives us a platform for imagination, a focal point to collectively push for new possibilities. Think about it: Automation, artificial intelligence , machine learning—these are all gifts we want ourselves so we have a little more time to wonder not only “What if?” but also “What for?” and “With whom?”
