The Linux Foundation's Clyde Seepersad to Host Training Q&A on Twitter

By April 24, 2017Blog

On Friday, April 28, The Linux Foundation will continue its new series of Twitter chats with leaders at the organization. This monthly activity, entitled #AskLF, gives the open source community a chance to ask upper management at questions about The Linux Foundation’s strategies and offerings.

#AskLF aims to increase access to the bright minds and community organizers within The Linux Foundation. While there are many opportunities to interact with staff at Linux Foundation global events, which bring together over 25,000 open source influencers, a live Twitter Q&A will give participants a direct line of communication to the designated hosts.

The second host (following Arpit Joshipura’s chat last month) will be Clyde Seepersad, the General Manager of Training and Certification since 2013. His #AskLF session will take place in the midst of many new training initiatives at the organization, including a new Inclusive Speaker Orientation and a Kubernetes Fundamentals course. @linuxfoundation followers are encouraged to ask Seepersad questions related to Linux Foundation courses, certifications, job prospects in the open source industry, and recent training developments.

Sample questions might include:

  • I’m new to open source but I want to work in the industry. How can a Linux Foundation Certification help me?

  • What are The Linux Foundation Training team’s support offerings like?

  • How will a Linux Foundation certification give me an advantage over other candidates with competitors’ certifications?

Here’s how you can participate in the first #AskLF:

  • Follow @linuxfoundation on Twitter: Hosts will take over The Linux Foundation’s account during the session.

  • Save the date: April 28, 2017 at 10 a.m. PT.

  • Use the hashtag #AskLF: To ask Clyde your questions while he hosts. Click here to spread the news of #AskLF with your Twitter community.

  • Be a n00b!: If you’ve been considering beginning a open source training journey, don’t be afraid to ask Clyde basic questions about The Linux Foundation’s methods, recommendations, or subjects covered. No inquiry is too basic!

More dates and details for future #AskLF sessions to come! We’ll see you on Twitter, April 28th at 10 a.m. PT.
