Red Hat to step up developer efforts

Filed under

Red Hat will step up its efforts to help drive developer contribution and remains unfazed by desktop competition, according to its chief executive Jim Whitehurst.

Addressing local students during his address Friday at UniSim, Whitehurst provided updates of Red Hat's Open Source Collaborative Innovation (OSCI) initiative launched just over a year ago.

OSCI was launched in an effort to encourage open source software deployment and included partnerships with tertiary institutions and an open source Masters degree program, offered together with UniSim.

The software vendor intends to expand its Red Hat Academy program to more educational institutions and teach students open source skills, Whitehurst said.

OSCI also sees Red Hat working with local software vendors to integrate their products with Red Hat's OS (operating system), he added.
