Building a Career with Ubuntu and FOSS


The Ubuntu community offers a vast number of places to get involved and much of this volunteer work directly translates into skills that can be then used in a technical career. This talk will cover these opportunities within the Ubuntu community including building up a body of programming work, improving writing and documentation skills, software packaging, event planning, community building and systems administration.

It will conclude with how these skills directly translate into real world experience for many of us who are now paid to work on free and open source software.
