Join Us in Honoring IT Heroes for SysAdmin Day, Win Free Tickets to LinuxCon & CloudOpen

sysadminday2014 According to the 2014 Linux Jobs Report, SysAdmins are the highest in demand position among Linux professionals. Fifty-eight percent of hiring managers said this year they are most aggressively seeking Linux SysAdmins followed by Linux application developers at 45 percent.

There is no doubt that as Linux has grown to support the world’s most advanced technology infrastructure that we need more SysAdmins to support it. Also, the role of the SysAdmin is gaining in significance in every organization. Today SysAdmins contribute to important strategic discussions about their companies’ futures, and their work is very often a critical component in enabling organizational growth. SysAdmins are our IT heroes.

That's why this year The Linux Foundation is honoring some of its very own SysAdmins in celebration of SysAdmin Day 2014 by profiling them here in Linux.com. So far in this series we've introduced Ryan Day and Andy Grimberg.

We also want to honor your SysAdmins. We want to hear about the amazing things they're doing to support the infrastructure and projects your companies are working on. Or, tell us about  the time(s) they stepped in and solved a problem so big you thought you were pretty much toast.

Just email the Linux.com editors at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it about why your SysAdmin should be recognized. Submissions are due by SysAdmin Day, July 25. Two individuals will be chosen by the Linux.com editors to be profiled in the weeks following SysAdmin Day and both the submitters and the SysAdmins who are chosen will receive free tickets to LinuxCon and CloudOpen North America taking place in Chicago August 20-22, 2014.

Don’t let your hero go unrecognized!
