e-NABLE: An open source design, a 3D printed prosthetic hand, and a very happy child
Not long ago, Richard Van As, a carpenter in need of a prosthetic hand, had an idea. He contacted a special effects artist and puppeteer, and began working on a prototype that would revolutionize how prosthetics are made for young adults. What came of that idea—an affordable, 3D printed prosthetic that moves and articulates like a robotic hand—simply would not exist without the collaborative work of a team of dedicated open source makers.
We felt this was open source thinking at its best. So we made a movie about it.
Stop by the Open Source Stories Theater at Red Hat Summit (Moscone West, Level 3) to see our award-winning short, e-NABLE: Open technology, faster progress.

Storage, containers, and objects
Isn’t it funny how storage, containers, and objects mean something quite different in the IT world than they do in everyday life? You can find all 3 at Red Hat Summit in San Francisco. Key announcements at this year’s event include object storage with Red Hat Ceph Storage, and container-native storage with Red Hat Gluster Storage. Learn more about new features, enhancements, and technology previews at the Red Hat Storage Blog.

Sam Atkinson proposes that most—maybe even all—developers love space. Even those who don’t probably love Chris Hadfield, the guitar-strumming astronaut who covered David Bowie’s Space Oddity from the International Space Station. These 2 topics are closely related, obviously, but not-so-obviously, they’re both highly relevant to developers who want better and safer development practices and processes. Here are a few highlights from Atkinson’s fast-paced, clever talk about applying lessons from the history of space exploration to modern development practices.

DevNation is off to a great start and if you missed Cian Clarke’s overview of Red Hat Mobile Application Platform, I feel bad for you, son. And if you like live demos and real-world examples from your presenters, I feel extra bad. Cian broke his talk down to 3 slides and 40+ minutes of demos. We’ll get to that later, but let’s get some general info out of the way first.
What’s a mobile application platform?
For those that haven’t spent much time with mobile app platforms, Cian made it easy to see the power of being able to iterate fast, push updates, and track the progress of your mobile apps. Red Hat Mobile Application Platform gives you all of that and more.
Why a do I need a platform?
A mobile app platform is important if you’re dealing with multiple apps, multiple mobile form factors (tablets, phones, watches, etc), multiple back-end systems, developers, versions, etc. Basically, if you’re an enterprise working in mobile at all, a platform can help you manage everything–across multiple teams–from a central tool.

At Red Hat Summit 2016, you’ll see the power of participation at work. The Red Hat® technologies that help you keep your business moving start with community participation. That’s why we feature many of our key communities in the Community Central area. At Community Central, you’ll meet principal community leaders and participants who are making the future of open source even better than it is today.
Community Central is located alongside the Partner Pavilion, on level 1 of Moscone Center West. Visit any time the Pavilion’s open. Refer to the Red Hat Summit agenda, or the Summit mobile app, for details.
Here are some of the communities you’ll see at Community Central this year:
