On May 27, Red Hat will sponsor "Open Your World," a day-long virtual forum presented by opensource.com and hosted by Red Hat’s Michael Tiemann, Vice President, Open Source Affairs. The virtual event will feature ten presentations exploring how the open source ideals of participation and collaboration are impacting business, education, government, law and life.
The presentations will provide attendees with a view of how open source principles play a larger role beyond technology to innovate and solve problems. We hope that the forum will act as a catalyst for open source communities to grow and encourage the use of open source thinking across multiple areas of life.
