NASHVILLE, Tenn.—If you were looking for new products at Red Hat's second annual Red Hat Summit, you came to the wrong place. But, if you were interested in bigger and better development tools, you came to the right place.

Red Hat CEO Matthew Szulik introduced the company's new open-source developer community Web site, "108," in the show's morning meetings.

This new site is intended to help open source developers share resources; build and fetch code; find and meet other developers, interact with them; and collaborate with them.

Within 108, Red Hat has set up several communities, focused on: People, Products, News, Partners, Interests and RoJo Dojo.

Each community has its own mailing lists, discussion forums, announcements, and Subversion for programming code version control.

This runs on top of CCE (CollabNet's Community Edition) collaborative development platform.
