FROM THE EDITOR
2020: A year like no other
It’s safe to say 2020 has been an unforgettable year.
We’ve seen the terrifying (COVID-19, "murder" hornets), the hopeful (promising COVID-19 vaccine trial results, a global reawakening to issues related to racial inequity), the thought-provoking ("unidentified aerial phenomena" videos released by the U.S. government), and the downright weird (a puppy born with green fur, a drumming duck named Ben Afquack).
While we didn’t film UFOs or train waterfowl to play percussion instruments, Red Hat Shares did cover some timely and important technology topics this year―from edge computing to Kubernetes to automation―as well as our first virtual Red Hat Summit.
In our end-of-year issue, check out the top 10 Red Hat Shares stories from 2020, Red Hat’s 2021 Global Tech Outlook, advice on how to prepare your IT infrastructure for the next 10 years, how we’re helping fight COVID-19, and more.
If we've learned anything this year, it's that no matter your industry or expertise, there’s a way to influence change for the better and care for the people around you. Please take care of yourselves and each other.
