Join Black Duck at the Red Hat Summit 2017


Next week, more than 5,000 members of the open source community arrive in Boston for Red Hat Summit 2017. Developers and executives from across the world are gathering for hundreds of sessions, hands-on experience and to interact face-to-face with product experts. Make sure you review the extensive conference catalog before you arrive!

This year the Red Hat Summit is May 2 – May 4 in Boston, Massachusetts. If you’re looking for a broad overview of the event, check out the agenda at-a-glance. Some of my favorite awards are presented at this show, particularly the Women in Open Source Awards and Red Hat Innovation Awards. I can’t wait to see who wins this year.

Out and About in Boston

No trip is complete without enjoying the local attractions. There’s so much to do, how can you be sure you’re getting the most from your time? We’re pros at Boston – a city near and dear to our hearts. The Black Duck team came up with some of our favorite things to do here.


  • Like sandwiches? I don’t, but I love Sam Lagrassa’s (44 Province St, Boston). They’re only open for weekday lunch, so don’t miss your opportunity to try them out.
  • Saus ( 33 Union St, Boston) offers made-from-scratch food that we just love.  
  • If you like seafood, don’t miss Yankee Lobster (300 Northern Ave, Boston).
  • The new Eataly Boston (800 Boylston St, Boston) is at the Prudential Center – so much to check out. Don’t miss it.
  • Stoddards Food and Ale (48 Temple Pl, Boston) is a gastropub - you must check it out if you like vintage cocktails and craft beer.

There are hundreds more options in Boston, though, so just take a walk, see the city and enjoy spring in New England.

Local Attractions

Ducky loves the Ducklings in the Boston Public GardenWhat better way to explore Boston than visiting Boston Common? Spring is under way, and both the Common and the Public Garden are not to be missed. Plus, some of Ducky’s favorite friends live at the Public Garden. Visit the "Make Way for Ducklings" statues and take a ride on the Swan Boats.

Faneuil Hall offers food, shopping and entertainment, and is just a short walk from North End/Little Italy.

If you’re a shopper, you really must visit Newbury Street. Wondering what kind of shopping you can do there? Check out this directory.

Some of our other favorites: the Freedom Trail, Old North Church, and the famously educational and entertaining Duck Tours.

We’re headed for Boston – join us at Red Hat Summit in booth #125!
