Open Source, What a Concept!

I recently joined Red Hat after many years working for another tech company whose three character symbol most would recognize, but I won’t name. While there, I developed a number of different software products that were all very successful in their spaces, but all very proprietary. Not only were we legally compelled to not share the software outside of the company, we often times didn’t share it within the company. To me at the time, that made complete sense. The company spent the time, energy and budget on developing the software, so they should then protect and then claim the rewards that were garnered for it.

Fast forward to a year ago when I joined Red Hat, and developed a completely different mindset. One of the first things I jumped into was the Buildah project. It facilitates building Open Container Initiative (OCI) images and it is especially good at allowing you to tailor the size of the image that is created.
