The 20th of June marks two occasions: the start of summer and Tech Day, back as a full-day live event in the Netherlands! Throughout this day, not only will you hear the latest open source technology news from our industry experts. We will also provide you with lots of opportunities to explore Red Hat technologies yourself during our live demos and hands-on workshop sessions. Here's all the reasons you don't want to miss this:

  • be the first one to deep dive into all the latest technology updates as presented and released during Red Hat Summit 2024 in Denver.

  • learn all about how to impact your platform strategy by using AI & Edge technology in your day-to-day business. 

  • discover how you can build security into your software development life cycle from the start.

  • experience Red Hat® OpenShift® and Red Hat® Ansible® Platform yourself, during workshops such as OpenShift AI, Virtualization and Ansible dev spaces on OCP. 



Whether you're an architect, administrator, platform engineer or developer, every new application and service that you release adds complexity in an already challenging environment. This demands a consistent, flexible platform across every environment you choose, and services like integration, data, analytics, and more to enable the different apps you release. But how do you sustain a long-term capability to bring together new clouds, tools, and integrations, especially when you can’t predict future needs? The answer isn’t one company, one cloud, or one vendor. Instead, the future of IT is hybrid. This is true for your customers, who expect you to continuously deliver a mix of different services, and for your teams, who must maintain some workloads on-premises while also supporting cloud-native development.

Session info

  • Red Hat Device Edge Technical Overview. In this presentation with demo, we will show you all about Red Hat® Device Edge
  • RHEL strategy & roadmap. We will provide the key to understanding and visualizing the strategy moving forward and give a clearer view on what was announced and what’s coming next in RHEL like RHEL AI, Image mode, and more.

  • RHEL infrastructure lifecycle management with real life use cases. We will explore some of the common scenarios where Red Hat Enterprise Linux platform portfolio can support, like: content and infrastructure lifecycle management with Red Hat Satellite Security, vulnerability and advisory management with Red Hat Insights Baselining, configuration and automation management with Image Builder and System Roles Compliance with OpenSCAP integration in RHEL, Satellite and Insights Managing in-place upgrades and conversion from RPM-based distribution to RHEL.

  • Workshop Edge: Red Hat Device Edge hands-on workshop.

  • Recap Summit: Ansible Automation. We will give you an overview of all automation news that was presented during Summit in Denver. 

  • The operational effect of observability and event-driven automation. IT automation strategies are the main topic of conversation because manual methods alone are no longer enough to manage complexity across hybrid environments, such as clouds, multiclouds, and on-premises technologies. Teams have to coordinate within and across domains and complicated technology, but without an automation strategy in place, delivering critical new capabilities will be slow. In addition, the operational infrastructure needs to be more consistent and change needs to be done efficiently and accurately. Event-driven automation is a new technique that provides an automated response to changing IT conditions. It can help keep key applications running smoothly with fewer issues due to consistent and accurate actions. When an issue does occur, resolution can also be achieved in less time with automation instead of extensive coordination. While event-driven automation is not a new technique, what’s needed is a way to expand its use while shrinking the technical debt of custom development. Join us to learn more about how to take advantage of observability and automation to run your critical technology more smoothly.

  • Automating cloud native enterprise with Dynatrace & Red Hat. The audience dives into automating cloud native enterprise with Dynatrace and Red Hat. In the first part, we’ll be looking back into the past to share the journey of the partnership between the Dynatrace and Red Hat ecosystems. In the second part of the talk there’s a deep dive on auto-remediation, how observability plays a role in the grand scheme of things and finally, how auto-remediation is put in practice!

  • Workshop Welcome to your shiny new developer experience. This workshop is for the Ansible Developer, or Ansible Engineer as we like to call them these days. In the first half, we will give you a comprehensive overview of all the goodness that we deliver for you in the latest release of Ansible Automation Platform, which is a LOT! In the second half, you can get your hands dirty with all that goodness. You walk away with a solid understanding of these tools, and we hope you will start using them in your own environments.

  • Recap summit: OpenShift & AI. You will hear all about OpenShift, OpenShift AI, RHEL AI, InstructLab and other new technologies that were presented at Red Hat Summit 2024.
