Ashesh Badani, global leader, Cloud and OpenShift, Red Hat
“OpenShift offers an application platform in the cloud that manages the stack so that developers can focus on their application code. As PaaS becomes an increasingly important component in the adoption of cloud across industries and geographies, it will become more crucial for government agencies to be ahead of the curve. We are excited to be able to offer the great benefits of our OpenShift PaaS to city governments through our work with Code for America.”
Mick Thompson, engineer in residence, Code for America
“Cities are changing. Across the country, we are seeing local governments begin to leverage the phenomenal advances in modern technology to be more responsive and connected to their residents. Through this partnership with Red Hat, the Code for America Fellows will be equipped to collaborate with our cities and counties and do even more, creating sustainable, innovative civic technology.”
