Bulding communities through FOSS SysAdmin Mentoring
This presentation will discuss how we create a new supply of FOSS SysAdmins with the competence and skillsets needed to support FOSS projects thru mentoring.
FOSS projects like Optware and OpenEmbedded, for example, require unique hosting solutions. That in turn requires competent, dedicated SysAdmins. Where do they come from?
The solution that we propose is an extension of the FOSS spirit into the SysAdmin realm via a program of apprenticeship and internship. This will create a new supply of FOSS SysAdmins with the competence and skillsets needed to support FOSS projects.
This presentation will discuss how the above will be accomplished, by getting involved, mentoring and learning.
