From the editor
How much impact can 1 person have?
Innovation is possible because of the people behind it: Turing’s “thinking computer.” Edison’s light bulb. Hopper’s COBOL computer language. Each started as an idea in the mind of 1 person who tried something new.
Thousands of attendees at this year’s Red Hat Summit celebrated the impact of the individual (like Charlie Reisinger) on innovation. This month we recap popular Summit keynotes and sessions*, award winners, product announcements, our “Road to AI” film premier, and more.
*Slides are being added as available; some recordings are available now.
