IDEAS WORTH EXPLORING
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.
Join us on September 13th to learn more from leading enterprises and partners as they share success stories of their digital journeys.

The slogan of “First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win” - Mahatma Gandhi's statement has been true for Open Source around the world. At this coming Red Hat Forum 2018, we have moved from open source being ubiquitous, to what we can achieve from the benefits of open cultures, open dialogue which leads to open innovation and open systems.
