How to Land the Best Linux Job

What are the best Linux jobs and how do you get one? I think a lot of people would agree that Linus Torvalds has a pretty good Linux job, but that's just one position and not one I think he wants to give up any time soon. If you're considering a career in Linux and/or increasing your knowledge of Linux in particular areas, there are certainly some areas that are hotter than others right now. We informally surveyed our online community, reviewed job postings on Linux.com and Dice.com, and have talked to a variety of our corporate members about the best Linux jobs and the skills needed to land them.

If you have ever wondered why a maintainer of an open source project could be a bit grumpy about anything you have sent them, I strongly suggest you go read the notes I wrote for that talk, or the slides, which includes all speaker notes.
