Red Hat is the Best IT Software Company!?

wtn-winner-badgeFriday night, Red Hat was honored as the “Best IT Software Company” along with luminaries from other industries including Elon Musk, LeVar Burton, and Jane Goodall by the World Technology Network.

Rodney Brooks, co-founder of iRobot and winner of the individual award for IT Hardware, made the joke that it was nice to have a hardware category, because we software guys never give hardware credit. I can think of a few jokes in the other direction, but he does have a point: none of us will be successful without each other. That’s why the evening was so much fun…

The room was full of customers and even some partners getting recognition for their work. These are the folks who have made us successful. I can’t wait to see what’s next!
