Open source principles help improve the world in a variety of ways. See how you can use them to make a positive impact.

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




Open source is about more than just code

We’re passionate about open source principles, processes, and culture because we believe they create better software and a better world.

In open source communities, hobbyists and tech professionals often go beyond open source software, working together to solve interesting, complex problems―and improve people’s lives. We’ve covered some of their stories, including how people are using open source tech and principles to 3D-print prosthetic limbs, grow healthy food, advocate for transparency in healthcare, and more.

At Red Hat, open source also goes beyond technology. For instance, our open organization empowers associates to stand up for what’s best for our customers. (Red Hat meetings are often … spirited.) We help enterprises adopt a more open culture so they can get their products and services to market faster. And our Open Innovation Labs help customers speed their own innovation.

This issue of Red Hat Shares includes stories about how applying open source processes, culture, and technology can help save the planet, facilitate DevOps success, inspire students to be problem solvers, and more.
