The Friday Five is a weekly Red Hat® blog post with 5 of the week's top news items and ideas from or about Red Hat and the technology industry. This week, we bring you a special edition—"The Summit Seven"—focusing on the top news from last week's 2015 Red Hat Summit.
DevOps and Open Source
DevOps promises to deliver better software faster, but it is not a product that you can buy and install. Instead, it is like open source: a better way to create software through a combination of culture, practices, and technologies. And, at Red Hat, we bring to DevOps the best of what open source offers. For example, we are experts in:
