Linux Kernel Training Helps Security Engineer Move into Full Time Kernel Engineering

In 2017, Mohamed Al Samman was working on the Linux kernel, doing analysis, debugging, and compiling. He had also built an open source Linux firewall, and a kernel module to monitor power supply electrical current status (AC/DC) by using the Linux kernel notifier. He hoped to become a full-time kernel developer, and expand the kernel community in Egypt, which led him to apply for, and be awarded, a Linux Foundation Training (LiFT) Scholarship in the Linux Kernel Guru category.

We followed up with Mohamed recently to hear what he’s been up to since completing his Linux Foundation training.
