Maxim Burgerhout

Maxim's background story is not a straight line from graduation to current position. Instead, Maxim has worked in various fields, from law enforcement to academia, through being a consultant in several mid-size and large IT firms in the Netherlands, until ending up at Red Hat. At Red Hat, Maxim is part of the presales team in the Benelux region, as a principal solution architect, and part-time evangelist. Red Hat is the place where Maxim was destined to end up at: it was his ultimate goal ever since he started to work with Linux and other open source software in the early '00s. He is very passionate about Red Hat and the way Red Hat does it's software development: out in the open. Maxim has spoken at various conferences, both in Europe and the United States, about the Red Hat portfolio and open society in general and open source in particular. Maxim is practically bilingual, being able to present in Dutch and English with the same ease: he was voted #1 speaker at Red Hat Summit 2018 in San Francisco, an event with over 7000 attendees from across the globe and hundreds of break out session.
