Red Hat is hosting three activities designed to connect Red Hat experts, software companies, and customers who are looking to consume applications built as containers. We are calling these "container workshops" and they are designed to deliver valuable information for the following types of people:
Software application development and deployment managers
Managers wanting to understand the business of containers
Architects determining applications and timelines for migration planning
What makes these workshops special is that they are something that Red Hat has never done before. But makes them unique and unlike other workshops is that there are no product pitches and we're not going to be pulling up a terminal window and watching a person cat out a log file to thunderous applause.
What we hope we have created is an open forum to bring together Red Hat, software companies, and some customers together to tear into the challenges that are faced when looking to consume containerized applications.
This will not be death by powerpoint either; once we get the forum going it generally can take on new topics as desired by the people in the room and their specific interests.
We are encouraging software companies to join us and be a part of an open forum, discussing the trends that are driving customers to look at containers as the next generation of application development and distribution.
Software companies that join us will be able to:
Network with key technical leaders driving Red Hat’s container strategy.
Learn what Red Hat customers are looking for from their application providers specific to containers.
Meet the Red Hat performance engineering team and discuss tuning considerations for containers.
Discuss security considerations for a containerized world with the Red Hat office of the CTO.
Discuss application container maintenance best practices and the customer impact.
Share key learnings around market trends and the forces behind them.
Discuss licensing considerations and export compliance for software companies that are building containerized applications.
