Title: Open Source technology for social good. How OpenShift is helping to build better solutions for smart cities
Speakers: Christopher Tate, Red Hat, and Alexandra Machado, Red Hat
Abstract: How can technology contribute to social good, and how can your open source tech skills help the world with solutions that are solving the world’s most pressing problems? Red Hat is using open source to help build solutions through our Social Innovation Program, supporting non-profit organizations in expanding their mission with technological solutions to address problems that affect us all. Join us to learn more about the Smart Village Project, and how Red Hat Openshift and other open source technologies are helping to build more agile and efficient solutions. You’ll see how OpenShift is the trusted cloud platform for organizations large and small, to launch new websites and powerful new systems that automate their mission. We’ll show you how their services are broken down into individual Kubernetes components, and how they are deployed to OpenShift to bring their mission online.
You will hear more about how technology can be used to help the world and practical ways on how to get started.
