Taste of Summit – Plan your time with session previews

It is coming very soon….


Red Hat Summit, it’s back for 2017 in Boston, MA from 2-4 May.


The agenda is online, you can search for your favorite speakers and start planning your time between sessions, keynotes, labs and more.


To tease you even more, there is a neat feature this year called Taste of Summit, where you can get free access to many of the sessions to be given in May.

Figure 1. My taste of summit preview.


Today you can register online and gain access to short, 15 min previews of session by the speakers you will meet in person at Summit.


They are giving you a teaser on the content and style you can expect, allowing you to make some early decisions on sessions you might want to see.


For example, my session shown in figure 1 is available as a Taste of Summit virtual session, where you get a preview to Discover the Foundations of Digital Transformation.

Figure 2. Entering theater for sessions.


After registration you will be emailed a confirmation of registration with details to log in using the email address you registered with. You will find yourself standing in front of the entrance to a virtual hall just like Red Hat Summit in Boston will look like.


Enter the Theater room and select from Keynote, 2017 Session Previews or Open Source Stories to select from an extensive list of previews, as shown in figure 2.


Click on 2017 Session Previews and use the Watch on Demand button to start previewing a session.


If you still need convincing, here are the slides for my preview:

Enjoy the Taste of Summit previews and see you very soon in Boston. Be sure to stop by and chat!

The impact of the individual at Red Hat Summit 2017

Each year at Red Hat, excitement bubbles around the upcoming theme for Red Hat Summit. What better way to pick a theme for the premier open source event than by using the Open Decision Framework? The Red Hat Summit team (50+ Red Hatters) was asked to share thoughts and ideas for this year’s theme. From there, a smaller core group lead the project, with continual feedback from experts across Red Hat.


“The additional benefit of opening the process up to the larger group is that everyone has a chance to contribute and understand (what can sometimes be a messy) creative process. Understanding leads to openness and trust, which in turn leads to a stronger solution everyone is on board with.”

-Senior graphic designer, Creative Strategy + Design, Colleen


After many collaborative discussions across Red Hat, the theme for 2017 is the impact of the individual.

Why did we choose the impact of the individual as the theme?

This year at Red Hat Summit, we want to celebrate you—the individual. For open source innovation is only possible because of the people behind it.
