A little over a month ago, 5,600 open source enthusiasts descended upon the Moscone Center in San Francisco for Red Hat Summit 2016. The four-day event brought together Red Hat customers, partners, community members, and contributors for a week of discussions around the power of open source.
In the midst of news, there was amazing content spanning keynotes, breakout sessions, and a wedding (you read that correctly).
Here’s a recap of some of the biggest moments of Red Hat Summit 2016, told by tweets throughout the week:

Bottom line on @RedHatNews containers: They are a feature of Linux OS, unless you offer a Linux OS, it will be hard to productize. #RHSummit— Dan Woods (@danwoodsearly) June 28, 2016
