It’s uncontested that open source communities have been at the center of innovation for decades, enabling and accelerating innovation through distributed developers’ contributions. What’s also become clear over time is that the outcomes of the open-source development model are anchored in ways of working and unsaid cultural principles and practices that enable these communities to thrive.
Red Hat, the leader in open-source, has boiled down the underpinnings of open source innovation in five principles that make up what we call open culture: transparency, collaboration, adaptability, community, and inclusivity. These principles — a bedrock to Red Hat’s innovative model for decades — have never been put to the test more than in the current climate when remote work has become the norm, and leaders rely on high-performing remote teams to continue to deliver tangible business outcomes and innovation. Business goals may need to be adapted in the current climate, but initiatives, milestones, and initiatives don’t disappear. Working in an agile manner is critical.

As our technology-driven world continues to evolve and change on a nearly daily basis, so does the expansion of open-source in new and exciting ways. This global expansion calls for more and more competent Linux systems administrators, both new and experienced, to meet the ever-increasing demands of the industry. Many systems administrators aim to push their own skills further and to become certified in a multitude of products. However, many more are unsure of where they stand, or even how to get started on validating their skills outside of their regular day-to-day operations. There are hundreds of different certifications available in the world, but where should new and inexperienced systems administrators start?

If you have been around the opensource world within the last few years, you would have heard about Ansible. If not, think of Ansible as the key to automating the world.
What is ansible?
Automation! Ansible is automation.
It is an open-source software provisioning, configuration management, and application-deployment tool that is highly customizable through playbooks to meet the needs of the environment

By now, you have probably adjusted to where the glare comes from on your computer screen as you try to conference call from the living room or exactly which light to turn on to give you that movie-star-in-quarantine look when you flip on your webcam for your team meetings. We are in very unique times for many work professionals.
Many of us are accustomed to getting dressed, commuting into the office, sitting down at a desk, and enjoying the occasional water-cooler talk or team lunch. Now, thanks to the amazing efforts of those companies who can afford to work virtually, we are instead waking up and trying to juggle personal and work commitments from our homes.

Enterprises have various options to implement integration solutions. Some of them can be purchased as a pre-built product ready for installation or procured from an Integration Platform as a Service (PaaS). In contrast, others can be built from scratch if there are enough resources and funding available along with a desire to reinvent the wheel. Most of these products have both pros and cons. In this blog post, I discuss open-source ways to design and develop enterprise integration solutions using integration technologies from Red Hat.

I recently collaborated with fellow Red Hatters to create a whiteboarding video that introduces OpenShift Serverless at a high level. In this article, I build upon that YouTube video and my recent work with Quarkus to create a hands-on deep dive into OpenShift Serverless. This article walks you through using the OpenShift Serverless operator to seamlessly add serverless capabilities to an OpenShift 4.3 cluster and then using the Knative CLI tool to deploy a Quarkus native application as a serverless service onto that same cluster.
OpenShift Serverless helps developers to deploy and run applications that will scale up or scale to zero on-demand. Applications are packaged as OCI compliant Linux containers that can be run anywhere. Using the Serverless model, an application can simply consume compute resources and automatically scale up or down based on use. As mentioned in the introduction above, the whiteboarding YouTube video embedded below provides a high-level overview of OpenShift Serverless.
