Red Hat has announced they are making Red Hat Enterprise Linux and associating offerings available to developers at no-cost.

Those signing up for Red Hat's Developer Program will get a no-cost Red Hat Enterprise Linux developer subscription.
With the Red Hat Enterprise Linux Developer Suite, developers have access to a broad and up-to-date set of development tools, in addition to the latest version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server, enabling the creation of modern applications for deployment across the hybrid cloud. In addition, enterprise IT teams who are embarking on modern application development, through DevOps, CI/CD or other practices, can now have a more simple and efficient environment with platform compatibility across development and deployment.

For those building cloud-native applications and/or microservices, this new no-cost development subscription also offers access to the Red Hat Container Development Kit (CDK), Red Hat’s curated collection of container development tools and resources. CDK users will have access to Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server and a local desktop instance of OpenShift Enterprise for development use - providing a powerful configuration for container-based application development.
