It’s award season, and we are honored to have a number of associates and teams recognized for their hard work and dedication to Red Hat and the open source community. During the last several months, we have seen three Red Hat associates, three products, two community projects, and two technology groups receive industry recognition and accolades, and we couldn’t be more proud. These accomplishments are a testament to the values poured out through the lives of our associates on a daily basis: freedom, courage, commitment, and accountability.
