From individual colleague’s open source gaming projects to Red Hat Summit keynotes, Red Hatters have a long history of contributing and building around the gaming space for educational, demo, and entertainment purposes. We felt it was important to recognize and highlight the extra nights and weekends of effort poured into the games and interactive experiences that have made so many memorable moments for both customers as well as our internal teams, and make the end results as accessible as possible.
