From the editor: Ideas worth exploring


A record 7,510 attendees, 35+ keynote speakers, and 315+ breakout sessions and labs. Live demos. Talented coders who aren’t even old enough to drive. DJs, including 2 Red Hatters. A 5K fun run that raised money for Girl Develop It. And an amazing show by Weezer at the historic San Francisco Armory.

Also, this might’ve been the best #RHSummit tweet ever.

These are just a few highlights from the biggest and best Red Hat Summit yet. (Yes, we say that every year―because it’s true.) Let’s take a look back at the important ideas explored at this year’s epic event.

Popular keynotes


Not surprisingly, one of the most popular keynotes this year was this live demo by Red Hat’s Burr Sutter and team, which deployed an artificial intelligence-based photo application, balancing its load across multiple cloud vendors, types, and locations automatically. Other popular keynotes include:

  • Jim Whitehurst, Red Hat CEO: Ideas worth exploring
  • Sara Chipps, Jewelbots CTO: All about Jewelbots (including a live demo)
