CO.LAB at Red Hat Summit 2018

Working on the CO.LAB initiative has been the most rewarding project of my career. So far, we’ve been to 4 cities and have taught nearly 100 middle school girls in underserved areas how to code their very own Raspberry Pi computers into digital cameras. But it’s more than just coding. It’s about collaboration—the students are

First Red Hat Summit Experience

For me, the 2018 Red Hat Summit was filled with firsts. It was my first Summit experience as well as my first time in San Francisco. Lastly (don’t tell anyone this), it was my first tech conference. While I’m no stranger to filming and editing live events, the approach Red Hat took to cover Summit

Designing the open source way

Working at the first billion-dollar open source company has taught me that open is a better way to develop software. Why? Because in the technology industry, change is constant. Think about how rapidly technology has evolved over the years. Fifteen years ago, everyone was excited about satellite radio, and ten years ago people didn’t carry

One square foot of collaboration, part 3

Earlier this year, we gave out two dozen wood panels to designers and other creative Red Hatters as part of a collaborative project to fill a wall in our workroom. Each designer got a square foot to fill however they wanted—as long as they used red, white, gray, and black to do it. They came

Separation & In Between

Collaboration is the theme for all the exhibitions at The Lab at VAE this year. But collaboration in art doesn’t always mean the hands-on work that artists might do together.
