Free and open source software development is rapidly gaining momentum and worldwide acceptance because it empowers end users. This presentation will describe Red Hat's approach to balancing the interests of community, customers, and business partners. We will see how open source projects are integrated to form Red Hat's distribution and how Red Hat supports and contributes to the community development process. This approach can serve as a model to others who are trying to understand the intersection of free open source software and business.


Tim Burke is the Director of Kernel Development at Red Hat, the world's leading provider of open source solutions to the enterprise. The Kernel Development team is responsible for the kernel portion of Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Burke is also the Director of the Fedora Project, an open source project sponsored by Red Hat and supported by the Fedora community. In his role as Fedora Director Tim leads both internal and external community projects with the ultimate goal of product incorporation. Prior to becoming a manager, Tim earned an honest living developing Linux high availability cluster solutions and Unix kernel technology. When not juggling bugs, features and schedules, he enjoys running, rock climbing, bicycling, and paintball.
