Wednesday, June 13, 2012 A Linux Career = Coin+ A Cause! That’s how The Linux Foundation defines career in Linux. Keeping in mind the increasing demand of the Linux professionals, Linux Foundation announced its 2012 Linux Training Scholarship Program. It has also announced the new Enterprise Linux Training program, which aims at preparing the next generation of enterprise architects.

According to a recent report from Dice.com, Linux job postings on the site have reached an all-time high. Dice.com said that the demand for Linux-related talent is increasing. The report was released in February which pointed to a lucrative year ahead for Linux talent professionals: 81 per cent of recruiters surveyed for the report said that hiring Linux is a priority in 2012, while 85 per cent said finding Linux talent is difficult. When they do find it, they're offering above normal pay increases and more perks to Linux professionals.

Amanda McPherson, vice president of marketing and developer programs at The Linux Foundation, said, “The Linux Foundation exists to protect, promote and advance Linux. Part of the work of advancing the platform is investing in the talent needed to support it. Our Linux training program has seen a surge in demand since its inception and we're happy to be able to provide this valuable service, as well as to offer Linux training opportunities to developers who might not otherwise be able to take advantage of them."

With the aim to meet this demand, Linux Foundation is providing Linux training opportunities direct from the source. The annual Scholarship Program extends the reach of these Linux training opportunities by awarding five scholarships to computer science students, Linux developers and architects who show incredible promise for helping to shape the future of Linux but do not otherwise have the ability to attend Linux Foundation training courses. Each scholarship will cover the expense for one course from The Linux Foundation's course catalog, a value averaging more than $2,500.

Scholarship applicants are invited to fill out a brief submission form online at: https://training.linuxfoundation.org/2012-linux-training-scholarship-program. Winners will be selected based on demonstrated need, proven interest in working on Linux and their vision for the future of the operating system.

Submissions are due by 12:01 a.m. PT on Wednesday, July 11, 2012 and will be reviewed by The Linux Foundation. Recipients will be notified in early August.

The organisation also announced the expansion of its training program to prepare the next generation of enterprise architects. So far, The Linux Foundation has focused on developer training. But with the increasing use of Linux in cloud computing, as well as high availability and high performance enterprise computing, companies need a neutral source for acquiring and sustaining skills in these areas.

The Linux Foundation will provide vendor-neutral, technically advanced training in Linux system administration, networking, security and cloud computing. While there are a variety of enterprise Linux training programs in existence, The Linux Foundation is expanding its program to train enterprises that have technology as the core strategy of their businesses and are optimising Linux and open source for competitive advantage.

The first classes available from this expanded area of the program will include:

Cloud Architecture and Deployment
Advanced Performance Tuning
Linux Security
These courses will be available to Scholarship winners, as well as developer courses, such as:
Embedded Linux Development
Embedded Linux Development: A Crash Course
Embedded Linux Development with Yocto Project/OpenEmbedded
Developing Device Drivers
Linux Kernel Internals and Debugging
Developing Applications for Linux
Developing with Git
Introduction to Linux for Developers
