Linux Professional Institute puts Linux in the classrooms
Do you want a job in IT? Then you really need to learn Linux and open-source software.
When I was at the open-source OSCon convention earlier this year, everyone, and I mean everyone, including Microsoft, was looking to hire people with Linux and open-source experience. A recent Dice and Linux Foundation survey found that 93 percent of employers were looking to hire Linux staffers in the next six months and that 90 percent were having trouble finding qualified individuals.
The problem is that there aren't enough Linux-savvy people around. The Linux Professional Institute (LPI), the oldest, non-vendor linked Linux certification organization, has a solution: The LPI Academy.
