Red Hat Summit 2017 will be taking place in Boston on May 2 to 4. Like every year, 2017's offerings will run the gamut, from hands-on sessions to high-high level discussions. Speakers will include Jim Whitehurst, the president and CEO of Red Hat, as well as Red Hat's president for products and technologies, Paul Cormier. Other big names planning to present include Microsoft's Julia White and Google's Sam Ramji.
If you want to get a head start, we've compiled our coverage from last year's summit, including a look at the role Ansible plays in DevOps. It's also a good time to brush up on your virtualization understanding. When does it make sense to use RHEL, RHEV or OpenStack? We've got the explanations you need.
Those struggling to use containers in the most efficient way -- particularly in the cloud -- might benefit from tips and advice on how OpenShift works. And in the increasingly important but complex API market, Red Hat stepped into the management arena when it acquired 3scale.
As a major proponent of open source technology, Red Hat is uniquely positioned in the market. It's made some in the company eager to teach everyone the "rules for playing nicely in the open source world." But it's also the biggest open source cheerleader around, convincing even IBM to step in to help make enterprises more comfortable. Some would even say Red Hat is an open source conglomerate, with all the benefits -- and challenges -- that entails. Get prepped for the Red Hat Summit 2017 with this coverage guide.
