There are thousands of Red Hat Certified Engineers all over the world.
I’m talking to all of you. All the ones I can reach, anyway.
How well do you know each other? What opportunities do you have to share your considerable knowledge? Do you have to travel across the globe to a Red Hat event, or can you find other RHCEs near you? Are you able to help out your aspiring RHCE brethren and sistren? Do you have a strong voice that Red Hat hears when you have Something To Say?
That’s what we’re trying to figure out. That’s why I will be at the RHCE Loopback event in New York City on October 8th. I’ll be there with a long list of people who are way smarter than I am in the way of latest and greatest technical goodness. (Which, by the way, almost certainly includes you, RHCE person.)
Looks like Mr. Robinson is already keen to attend one of these in London. We’ll see what we can do for you, Peter. But first things first: let’s make sure the one in NYC is Altogether Freaking Awesome. 🙂
Which we could use your help with, by the way. Are you an RHCE in the neighborhood? Come on down. It’s free. It’s only a half-day, but go ahead and tell your boss it’s a full day, I won’t tell. We’ll even feed you — just go easy on the pastries. You know what I’m talking about.
Let’s make it a huge success so that we can do a ton of them. I’d love to see multiple RHCE events, every year, on every continent. But we have to start with one. Come on, RHCEs of the northeastern US — we’re counting on you.
