What is the Red Hat Developer Hub?

The Red Hat® Developer Hub is a developer portal that promotes efficiency and collaboration by visually consolidating elements of the development process. It streamlines onboarding speed, developer productivity, and collaboration through a unified and open platform while reducing cognitive load and frustration for the development team. With pre-architected and supported approaches, and by centralizing technology resources, developer focus can center on delivering a competitive advantage for their organization.

Development teams can help make sure workflows run smoothly by providing the right tools, validated environments, and on-demand services. Confidence is gained that software will adhere to organizational best practices and standards without introducing unnecessary bureaucracy. Maintenance becomes more manageable, and future teams can easily assume control within a known, trusted environment, while also enhancing governance.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does the Red Hat Developer Hub compare to DIY open source tools?

Using the best solutions from rapidly iterated upstream open source projects, we’ve created a tailored platform with a complementary suite of verified and curated tools. Components needed for operations teams to support developers are contained within a centralized, consistent location. Organizations benefit with increased productivity, fewer development obstacles, and simplified  governance of technology choices, with self-service options and well-defined guardrails.

With Red Hat's extensive experience in building, developing, contributing to, and expanding open source projects into industry standards supported by its development expertise and leadership, there is an increased likelihood of Backstage realizing broader industry adoption.

What are the Red Hat Plug-Ins for Backstage, and how do they interact with the Red Hat Developer Hub?

Red Hat Plug-ins for Backstage are complementary to Red Hat Developer Hub and the Backstage ecosystem. Along with Red Hat Developer Hub, we are releasing  plug-ins for Backstage to extend the functionality of the upstream project. Red Hat Plug-ins for Backstage will work in tandem with the Developer Hub, and pre-existing customer installations of Backstage, improving the overall experience and extending its functionality, while eliminating compatibility and operational issues. 

Does the Red Hat Developer Hub only benefit new IT organizations?

The Red Hat Developer Hub offers tools for organizations of any size or experience level. The tools that standardize approaches across teams are especially important for businesses, as  development teams struggle with the dual challenge of securing access to vital resources while adhering to organizational best practices. The release cadences typical in agile software development, including continuous integration, test automation, environment configuration, and version control all provide constant challenges.
