Red Hat recognizes that we are beholden to upstream Open Source communities for our success. In this talk, Red Hat's Thomas Cameron will discuss why "upstream first" is so important to Red Hat, and how Red Hat interacts with upstream Open Source communities, from the Linux kernel, to OpenStack, JBoss, Ceph, Gluster, Spacewalk, and more. Thomas will discuss the importance of Red Hat's 100% Open Source development model, what software Red Hat has sponsored, contributed to, acquired, and released to various communities, and how upstream Open Source communities are in Red Hat's DNA. Upon completion, attendees will have an understanding of Red Hat's history, and how Red Hat has turned "selling free software" into a multi-billion dollar business.
