[2020-04-30] - The Virtual Red Hat Summit week

I’m writing this as we wrap up another successful Red Hat Summit. But this year, with a significant distinction: the event was 100% virtual. Despite the involuntary move to virtual, there were many benefits that came about from the change in format. The event was completely free, and of course required no travel, allowing a much broader and more diverse set of attendees to benefit from the content and experience. It was also ran in three regions to accommodate many more timezones.

Being Red Hat we were keen to experiment with the format and find new ways to engage with the community. It was important for us to carry over as much of the personality and intimacy of the physical event as possible. So, this needed to be more than just a bunch of streamed talks. The talks were pre-recorded which allowed the presenter(s) to participate directly in the Q&A in real-time as the talk proceeded. There was also a variety of sessions that went beyond the talk format. For examples see Ask the experts, Networking social hour, and the Virtual Open Neighborhood on the agenda.

If you weren’t able to attend, or want to catch some of the talks you missed, you can re-live the virtual event here.
