The Linux Foundation, a non-profit consortium, has announced a new training program that will help developers to enhance their technical skills in Linux. The course will take place at Linux Foundation's Annual Collaboration Summit April 8 to April 10, 2009 in San Francisco.

The Linux Foundation's Training Program is designed in consent with the Technical Advisory Board which includes leading maintainers from the Linux community. The program is said to be vendor-neutral, technically advanced and is expected to give broad, foundational knowledge and networking needed in building one’s career.
"We've received consistent feedback from companies worldwide that the rising number of Linux deployments is putting new demands on a talent pool that needs more Linux-related developers," said Jim Zemlin (News - Alert), executive director at the Linux Foundation. "We believe the Linux Foundation can provide a vendor-neutral forum in which students can learn from the community's most influential contributors in order to drive their careers in more lucrative directions."
Training Program will span the enterprise server and mobile and embedded markets, with courses covering the latest File systems, Device Driver Development, Kernel Internals, Debugging and Performance and Power Management and Optimization.
Program includes in-person courses at the Linux Foundation's events, including its Collaboration Summit, End User Summit and LinuxCon, in-person classes in cities around the United States and onsite, custom courses for companies that want to ensure their developer core remains current.
Graduates of the Program get access to variety resources available at Linux Foundation, which will provide students networking opportunities with the developer and vendor community through a variety of its events and activities.
Founded in 2007, the Linux Foundation sponsors the work of Linux creator Linus Torvalds and is supported by leading Linux and open source companies and developers from around the world. The Linux Foundation promotes, protects and standardizes Linux by providing unified resources and services needed for open source to successfully compete with closed platforms.
