Red Hat has been around since 1993 and has seen drastic increases in adoption in the federal government. Ten years ago it was touted as one of the fastest operating systems — one reason was the open source community constantly offering improvements. One can argue that the rise of convergence has made that argument moot.
Today, agencies are challenged with such rapid change that they must embrace agile methods of software distribution. Red Hat is stepping up to the challenge with offering open source solutions that fit well in the new “DevOps” concept of development.
During the interview, Dave Egts talks about an event called DevNation. It is held in Washington DC and has a focus on development and open source.
