Keeping skills fresh in tech pays off

Filed under
GNU
Linux

Over the years, I've improved my skills with the help of mentors and colleagues, by learning on and off the clock, at conferences and events, and with a mix of formal and self-paced training. My first Linux installs were on old laptops on weekends, and the first websites I built were for friends or barter. (I traded one basic business site in exchange for personal training at a gym.) Being comfortable using a variety of Linux and open source tools, and knowing my way around Drupal, WordPress, ezPublish, Joomla, and other content management systems didn't move me into another field or allow me to add web developer job titles to my resume, but they did help my resume stand out among ones with fewer technical skills, and they allowed me to land dozens of freelance articles that otherwise would have been passed on to writers with more experience or larger networks.

Ubuntu Software License Updated to Comply with GNU GPL

  • Ubuntu Software License Updated to Comply with GNU GPL

    The company behind the Ubuntu Linux operating system, Canonical, has changed the licensing terms of Ubuntu to comply with the GNU General Public License and other free software licences.

    This week, Canonical added a “trump clause” that says that when Canonical’s license contradicts the widely accepted “copyleft” license GPL, GPL shall prevail.

    Activist groups, including the Free Software Foundation and the Software Freedom Conservancy have been in discussion with Canonical for nearly two years, trying to get Canonical’s policy to unequivocally comply with the generally accepted GNU GPL software license.

  • Thoughts on Canonical, Ltd.'s Updated Ubuntu IP Policy

    Most of you by now have probably seen Conservancy's and FSF's statements regarding the today's update to Canonical, Ltd.'s Ubuntu IP Policy. I have a few personal comments, speaking only for myself, that I want to add that don't appear in the FSF's nor Conservancy's analysis. (I wrote nearly all of Conservancy's analysis and did some editing on FSF's analysis, but the statements here I add are my personal opinions and don't necessarily reflect the views of the FSF nor Conservancy, notwithstanding that I have affiliations with both orgs.)

  • The Controversy Behind Canonical's Intellectual Property Policy

    In the world of FOSS, a small change to a license can be a big deal. For users of proprietary software, changes in the EULA are hardly even registered. Those users click "Ok" and forget about it in the blink of an eye. They have accepted that they are severely limited as far as their rights to alter or redistribute the software is concerned.

    But for users of free software, such as Linux or any of the hundreds of packages that make up a modern operating system, a license change has the potential to change their rights dramatically. So, these events are usually the cause of controversy.
