Come with questions. Leave with ideas.

Open source is collaborative curiosity. It’s about a culture with a desire to connect and the technologies to do it. Yet what draws our attention isn’t the technology alone; it’s what we can do with it. It gives us the platform for imagination, a focal point to collectively push for new possibilities.

Automation, AI, machine learning--these are a gift we gave ourselves, the luxury of reclaimed time to wonder. To ask not only “What if?” but also “What for?” and “With whom?”

Red Hat Forums are the place for these questions, a gathering of the curious, an arena of ideas to reinvent what we have and to dream of what we might. So join us in Oslo - come with questions, leave with ideas.

Look forward to:

  • Keynote presentations on industry trends
  • Detailed technological implementation sessions
  • Conversational sessions with industry experts
  • Learning from customer references
  • Hands-on labs
  • Live demos

Many thanks to our sponsors
