FROM THE EDITOR 

Powered by possibilities: Highlights from the biggest Red Hat Summit yet

The theme of this year’s Red Hat Summit in Boston was "expand your possibilities." We also expanded the number of attendees and the size of the main stage (almost half as long as a football field).

If you didn’t make it to Red Hat Summit 2019, here’s some of what you missed:

35+ general session speakers, 589 breakout sessions and labs, major product launches including Red Hat Enterprise Linux® 8 and Red Hat OpenShift® 4, an inspiring CO.LAB performance, an Open Source Stories film premiere, so much swag, open source video games, custom caricatures, a 180-degree photo station, T-shirt and confetti cannons, T-shirt screen printing, a "playground," these things, our CMO Tim Yeaton showing off his sweet new Red Hat logo tattoo, the Red Hat Women’s Leadership Community luncheon, a concert with Neon Trees and Fitz and the Tantrums, a 5K run benefiting Boston Partners in Education, more tattoos, new merchandise at the on-site Cool Stuff Store, and―a favorite―adorable puppies from Great Dog Rescue New England.

Scroll down for links to Red Hat Summit session recordings and presentations, as well as featured keynotes, top breakout sessions, award-winner information, and more.
