Open source communities have historically been most focused on source code and with developers, often at the individual project level. The associated open source development model has driven and continues to drive an increasing amount of the world’s innovation. But that world is changing. Hybrid cloud and edge computing architectures are complex. Increasingly, system engineering, architectural patterns, and integration can no longer be an afterthought. In this talk, Red Hat’s Gordon Haff and William Henry take you through these mounting challenges. But we’ll also share some of the work going on to deliberately build in operations and system design in an open source way. One project is Operate First, which lets open source developers bring their projects to a production cloud during development. We’ll also give an example of Blueprints. Open source Blueprints focus on specific solution patterns with the goal of providing a prescriptive architecture for deploying open source software based on real life implementations. One benefit among many of this approach is that it limits the interactions among component open source projects and products and thereby simplifies the evolution of the solution through its lifecycle.
