The growing acceptance of open source software in the workplace prompts a strong push for open source training for recent college graduates. I cannot speak for all recent college graduates, and I cannot speak for every university, but I can speak from my experiences and the experiences of others I have talked with on this subject.
Large corporations are becoming increasingly interested in the value of deep open source knowledge. While some corporate leadership may inherently understand the intricacies of open source training inside and out, I would argue that for most companies interested in training, the characteristics and processes are anything but well known. To shed light on such topics, I sat down with Matt Atwater, the Director of Support and Professional Services at OpenLogic, to ask him a few questions regarding open source training.
