Red Hat Announces First Red Hat Developer Day In India

Launches Red Hat Developer Program To Connect And Empower Open Source Developers

Red Hat announced the commencement of the first Red Hat Developer Day in India. An exclusive Red Hat event, the Red Hat Developer Day aims to bring together Linux developers and users to help grow open source technologies, development, techniques, tools and standards through the sharing of technical knowledge and expertise. This first of its kind event marks Red Hat's continuous efforts to encourage open source development in India.

Red Hat also announced that the company is initiating the Red Hat Developer Program, a community development program in India through the recently launched Red Hat 108. Red Hat 108 is a community of and for open source developers.

The Red Hat Developer Program in India will provide a place for Red Hat to deliver developer-oriented content for anyone developing, testing, and deploying solutions that include Red Hat and other vendor platforms. The community of customer and corporate developers are encouraged to collaborate on 108.redhat.com portal, help define what technical content they need, and, in some cases, to become editorial voices themselves.

108 also aims to reduce or remove the barriers to open collaboration between Red Hat, customers, partners, and the open source communities. 108.redhat.com is at the intersection of these groups, and is a collaboration space that can draw project members together to solve real problems, make it easier to work with open platforms in various environments, and facilitate collaboration that improves software and standards.

"In the last year, India has been witness to large-scale enterprise deployments of Linux across verticals, including government, financial services and telecommunications. Through our Open Source Symposium and Red Hat Developer Day, we are bringing together the open source technologies that are helping the large enterprise customers of Red Hat globally," said Nandu Pradhan, President and Managing Director, Red Hat India.

"The first step to enabling an open source contribution is to reduce or remove the barriers to open collaboration between Red Hat, customers, partners, and the open source communities. 108 is at the intersection of these groups, and is a collaboration space that can draw project members from these groups to work together on solving real problems," said Satish Mohan, Head - Engineering, Red Hat India said. "By providing an easy-to-use collaboration platform combined with the leverage that Red Hat has in bringing partners, developers, and customers together, 108 is in a position to give hands-on experience with the open source methodology in a way that contributors can be involved."

"A large objective of the Red Hat Developer Program is to bring awareness of the fact that open source makes developers out of everyone. We are all bug testers, early adopters, interface designers, idea creators, information architects, technical writers, and so forth. Some of us even write code -- from shell scripts to web applications. We want to connect and empower developers, as well as learn from them," Mohan added.
