About Summit

Why attend?

Red Hat Summit is for anyone preparing for the future of technology―a future built on open source. Join us in Boston to learn, network, and experience open source.

What to expect

Red Hat Summit is a collaborative forum, a place to expand your possibilities. This year, we’re thinking about AND.

AND is about scaling your technology and culture in whatever size or direction you need, when you need to, with what you actually need―not a bunch of bulky add-ons. From the right foundation―an open foundation―AND adapts with you. It’s interoperable, adjustable, elastic. Think Linux AND containers. Think public AND private cloud. Think Red Hat AND you.

Red Hat Summit is where AND comes to life, where ideas become reality. Event sessions will cover advances in technology, IT processes, and culture trends―things that help organizations expand their possibilities.

Who attends?

Admins. Analysts. Architects. Consultants. Developers. Engineers. Executives. Managers. Partners. Vendors. All kinds of people come to Red Hat Summit, from the career IT pro to the open source contributor, and our attendees represent nearly every industry from all over the world.
