The Linux Foundation is offering global training programs, including a free webinar series, to help prospective job searchers meet the rise in demand for Linux-related jobs.
Open-source is opening its doors. The non-profit Linux Foundation is offering courses, some at no cost, to support the fastest growing jobs in the U.S., namely systems analysts and software engineers.
CNET reports a 50% increase in Linux related jobs in 2009.
Linux's top technical talent will be available to provide education to the masses with the aim of satisfying expanding employment for skilled Linux professionals.
Topics include "an introduction to Git", "Linux performance tuning", "Linux filesystem overview" and "Linux troubleshooting and tuning".
With an operating system that supports more drivers than Windows or Mac, Google also sees the potential of the Linux platform, as its Android handset is Linux-based. Google has predicted their mobile technology will gain rapid adoption and IDC has reported that the Android smartphone will be the number two phone by 2013.
