Red Hat® Shares covered lots of technology topics during the past year. Check out our 10 most popular stories from 2019, and tell us what you'd like for us to do differently in the new year.

The Red Hat Shares newsletter helps IT leaders navigate the complicated world of IT―the open source way.



A year of goodbyes and historic firsts

If you’re a tech enthusiast, 2019 didn’t disappoint.

This year we saw the first all-female spacewalk. The Mars Opportunity rover died, as did Google+ (may they rest in peace). Mark Zuckerberg announced that WhatsApp, Messenger, and Instagram would merge. And to the dismay of many―including World Wide Web inventor Tim Berners-Lee―the Internet Society announced plans to sell the .org domain.

While we at Red Hat Shares didn’t repair a space station or irk Mr. Berners-Lee (we hope), we did bring you lots of open source tech information―the most popular of which you’ll see in this end-of-year edition of the newsletter. You’ll also find data on how IT pros are benefiting economically from Red Hat Enterprise Linux®, the story of Red Hat, a great deal on your Red Hat Summit 2020 pass, and more.
