Tencent

The Linux Foundation’s Jim Zemlin announces Internet giant Tencent’s support for open source as a Platinum member at LC3 conference in Beijing.

The Linux Foundation – home to the largest open source technology collaboration effort in the world – returned to China for the second year for the LinuxCon + ContainerCon + CloudOpen conference.  China understands the great value of open source code development and how it helps maximize innovation and rapid advancement across all industries.

During our trip to China, we were thrilled to announce that Tencent has joined Huawei as the second Chinese company to become a Platinum member of The Linux Foundation, as we also celebrate other Chinese organizations, such as Alibaba, Baidu, and JD.com, becoming leaders in open source technology development.  We thank Tencent for their leadership and contribution of two open source projects – TARS and TSeer – to The Linux Foundation to encourage more collaborative development.

To further support China’s embrace of open source technology development, The Linux Foundation presented the Open Source Guides for the Enterprise translated into Chinese. These guides, produced along with The TODO Group, are an important tool to help Chinese organizations learn how to increase their involvement in this critically important effort. The guides are also part of the launch of The Linux Foundation’s new Chinese website: https://www.linuxfoundation.cn. We hope this site serves as a resource for developers, companies and other stakeholders throughout China to become more active than ever in open source.

The open source global community is about everyone benefiting together. It doesn’t matter who you are, what company you work for or what country you are from; together we are most successful when we collaboratively create great technology and solve some of the world’s most difficult problems. The Linux Foundation celebrates China’s leadership and embrace of open source, and we look forward to a long partnership in your great nation.

2018 OS Jobs Report

The latest Open Source Jobs Report shows a strong market for open source talent, driven in part by the rapid growth of cloud technologies.

Linux expertise is again in the top spot as the most sought after open source skill, says the latest Open Source Jobs Report from Dice and The Linux Foundation. The seventh annual report shows rapidly growing demand for open source skills, particularly in areas of cloud technology.

Key findings of the report include:

  • Linux tops the list as the most in-demand open source skill, making it mandatory for most entry-level open source careers. This is due in part to the growth of cloud and container technologies, as well as DevOps practices, all of which are typically built on Linux.
  • Container technology is rapidly growing in popularity and importance, with 57% of hiring managers seeking those skills, up from 27% last year.
  • Hiring open source talent is a priority for 83% of hiring managers, up from 76% in 2017.
  • Hiring managers are increasingly opting to train existing employees on new open source technologies and help them gain certifications.
  • Many organizations are getting involved in open source with the express purpose of attracting developers.

Career Building

In terms of job seeking and job hiring, the report shows high demand for open source skills and a strong career benefit from open source experience.

  • 87% of open source professionals say knowing open source has advanced their career.
  • 87% of hiring managers experience difficulties in recruiting open source talent.

Hiring managers say they are specifically looking to recruit in the following areas:

OS Jobs skillsDiversity

This year’s survey included optional questions about companies’ initiatives to increase diversity in open source hiring, which has become a hot topic throughout the tech industry. The responses showed a significant difference between the views of hiring managers and those of open source pros — with only 52% of employees seeing those diversity efforts as effective compared with 70% of employers.

Overall, the 2018 Open Source Jobs Report indicates a strong market for open source talent, driven in part by the growth of cloud-based technologies. This market provides a wealth of opportunities for professionals with open source skills, as companies increasingly recognize the value of open source.

The 2018 Open Source Jobs Survey and Report, sponsored by Dice and The Linux Foundation, provides an overview of the latest trends for open source careers. Download the complete Open Source Jobs Report now.

deep learning

The LF Deep Learning Foundation is now accepting proposals for the contribution of projects.

I am very pleased to announce that the LF Deep Learning Foundation has approved a project lifecycle and contribution process to enable the contribution, support and growth of artificial intelligence, machine learning and deep learning open source projects. With these documents in place, the LF Deep Learning Foundation is now accepting proposals for the contribution of projects.

The LF Deep Learning Foundation, a community umbrella project of The Linux Foundation with the mission of supporting artificial intelligence, machine learning and deep learning open source projects, is working to build a self-sustaining ecosystem of projects.  Having a clear roadmap for how to contribute projects is a first step. Contributed projects operate under their own technical governance with collaboration resources allocated and provided by the LF Deep Learning Foundation’s Governing Board. Membership in the LF Deep Learning Foundation is not required to propose a project contribution.

The project lifecycle and contribution process documents can be found here: https://lists.deeplearningfoundation.org/g/tac-general/wiki/Lifecycle-Document-and-Project-Proposal-Process. Note that sign-up to the general LF Deep Learning Foundation mailing list is required to access these materials.

If you are interested in contributing a project, please review the steps and requirements described in the above materials. We are very excited to see what kinds of innovative, forward-thinking projects the community creates.

If you have any questions on how to contribute a project or the types of support LF Deep Learning Foundation is providing to its projects, please reach out to me at snicholas@linuxfoundation.org.
