As the demand for IT professionals with Linux experience soars, training programs are moving to front and center for the non-profit organization charged with promoting the open-source platform.

The market for developers with Linux experience has been increasing during the past year, and, with the advent of cloud technology, there is also a growing need for Linux system architects.
The Linux Foundation, a nonprofit consortium founded in 2007, is charged with helping to promote and further the adoption of the Linux operating system. It provides a vendor-neutral forum for collaboration and education. It hosts Linux conferences, including LinuxCon (August 29–31, 2012, San Diego), and sponsors original research, messaging, and training to help advance a broader understanding of the Linux platform.
