Questions about SysAdmin Training from The Linux Foundation? Join the Next #AskLF


Let the knowledge-sharing continue! On Monday, July 31 at 10 AM PT, The Linux Foundation will present another installment in its #AskLF program: a series of monthly Twitter chats hosted by The Linux Foundation thought leaders and experts. The program allows the open source community to ask a designated host questions about the organization’s offerings and strategies. Previous topics have included open networking, Linux Foundation Training and Certification programs, the basics of Cloud Foundry, and gender & diversity inclusion at Linux Foundation events. This fifth chat in the series will focus on The Linux Foundation’s SysAdmin Training offerings, hosted by Nate Kartchner, Training Marketing Manager at The Linux Foundation.

Nate Kartchner#AskLF began earlier this year as a way to shed light on the organization’s various experts on open source industry topics, as well as the organization’s strategy and vision. The series also gives @linuxfoundation followers a way to access its many resources — and engage with one another over shared interests. Nate Kartchner has been with The Linux Foundation since 2014, helping lead the evolution of The Linux Foundation’s growing role in training the open source pros of tomorrow.

His #AskLF chat will take place the Monday after SysAdmin Day: a professional holiday the organization has recognized for years.

From free introductory MOOCs on a handful of important open technology topics to mid-senior level open source training, The Linux Foundation has steadily expanded its training initiatives to include professional training on the open source projects that matter most. Students at various places in their career trajectories can find guidance in Linux Foundation Training offerings such as LFS201: Essentials of System Administration.

@linuxfoundation followers will have the chance to ask Nate questions about how Linux Foundation Training can help guide their burgeoning and existing SysAdmin career journeys.

Sample questions include:

  • How does LFS201 prepare students for real-world SysAdmin challenges?

  • How can an absolute beginner kick off their SysAdmin career?

  • How will a Linux Foundation SysAdmin certification help me get hired ?
