To celebrate the upcoming holiday season, the Red Hat Learning Community is hosting a contest featuring a daily question inspired by open source technology and a related Red Hat Training course in the Red Hat Learning Subscription.

Cheerfully named the "12 days of Learning", each question in the challenge will be posted one at a time with the answer being revealed 24 hours later. Each correct answer equals one entry into a drawing for the ultimate prize in the Learning Community.

  • A unique contest badge
  • Featured member of the Community
  • Rank up to your next rank
  • A featured write up about you and your open source journey with Red Hat
