Self-paced training

Get Creative at Summit: Collaborative Coloring Project

Leave Your Mark on Red Hat Summit 2016

In addition to world-class speakers, hands-on training and excellent networking, attendees at Red Hat Summit will have a new way to “make their marks” on this year’s event – by participating in a one of a kind collaborative coloring project.

Participating couldn’t be easier – attendees just have to visit The Creative Loft area on the third floor of Moscone North, find the booth and pick up their favorite color Sharpie. From there, it’s all up to the imagination.

Remember to post pictures of your contribution on Twitter or Instagram using #RHSummit.

Discover What Happens When Participation Meets Social Media

Red Hat will bring the power of participation to life with the #RHSummit Mosaic – an interactive piece of art, composed of photos shared on social media.

Over the course of this year’s Summit (June 27th – June 30th), the mosaic will be hand assembled on site, with 3,200 individual photographs combining to reveal a special message.

Participation is easy and we’re hoping that those interested around the world get in on the action. All you have to do is share a photo on Twitter or Instagram (your account must be set to public) and tag it with #RHSummit. With a little bit of luck, your photo will be printed out on-site in San Francisco and added to the mosaic.  And don’t think you have to wait until Summit starts! We want to include photos of the entire Summit experience, including the journey to San Francisco!

Those of you who will be attending Summit can also have your favorite conference pictures printed instantly by using #RedHatPrint. Stop by Moscone North on the first floor to pick up your 1.5” keepsake.

Track the progress of the mosaic as the design unfolds on-site at Summit or on social media by following

This unique mosaic will be a reflection of everyone who participated in this year’s Summit, from in-person to social media. We can’t wait for you all to share your experiences.

The art of changing the enterprise mindset with mobility at the Red Hat Summit

Mobile and Iot

“Mobile can help change the entire mindset of software development across an organization” reads the abstract for the MAD for mobile: Achieving mobile zen through agile, DevOps, and microservices session on the Mobility & IoT track at the Red Hat Summit.  There’s often hesitation within organizations to move from familiar, traditional software development methods to a more agile working environment. However, it does not have to be that way! This session highlights the business case for the establishment of a Mobile Center of Excellence (CoE).  There are several other sessions in this track that reinforce this assertion.  Take, for example, Electronic Arts (EA) — an organization whose name is synonymous with gaming.  In their session at the Red Hat Summit, EA shares how they have quickly identified a need to improve integration between mobile apps and their legacy systems with modern approaches to development on cutting-edge technology stacks.  Join me as I take you through a tour of the various sessions that collectively bring out the art of going mobile with the right technologies across the enterprise.
