The fourth-annual Red Hat Summit will take place June 18-20 at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston, Mass. The event will feature keynote speeches from Red Hat President and CEO, Jim Whitehurst; Red Hat CTO, Brian Stevens; Co-Creator of The Simpsons, Joel Cohen; General Manager, IBM Enterprise System Division, Jim Stallings; and CIO, Harvard Medical School, John Halamka. Attendees can choose from eight tracks and select paths that provide a guide to sessions that best fit their organization’s needs. Come to the Summit to meet Red Hat, our partners, our customers and members of the open source community.

The Fedora User Users and Developers Conference (FUDCon) will be held in parallel with the Red Hat Summit in Boston. FUDCon will feature everything from hackfests – where contributors get together to brainstorm, design, prototype and improve free and open source software – to conference sessions. FUDCon is truly a community event where everyone from new users to Linux luminaries meet, mingle and work on new features.
