Linux reaches out to hobbyist developers

Filed under
Linux

Theodore "Ted" T'so, a leading Linux kernel developer, announced that, "The Linux Kernel Summit Program Committee would like to put out a call for hobbyists. This year, we have up to three places to give to people who do Linux Kernel development as a hobby rather than a profession." The foundation's definition of "hobbyist" is anyone who doesn't get paid to work on Linux.

This year's Linux Kernel Summit will be held in Edinburgh from October 23 to 25. T'so continued, "Since most top kernel developers are not hobbyists these days, this is your opportunity to make up for what we're missing. As we recognize most hobbyists don't have the resources to attend conferences, we're offering, as part of the normal kernel summit travel fund processes, travel reimbursement as part of being selected to attend."
