The Linux Foundation and Coursera Launch New Specialization for Open Source, Linux and Git #Linux_FoundationDecember 7, 2018
Developed by the Linux Foundation’s Director of Training, Jerry Cooperstein, The Open Source Software Development, Linux and Git specialization is a remote learning program designed to give students a strong foundation of skills for working in open source development communities.
It requires that students have some familiarity with other operating systems, and experience working in the command line is also helpful, though not required.
A Coursera specialization is a series of related courses designed to help learners master a specific topic.
Open Source Software Development Methods is designed to introduce open source software to students as well as cover its history and the benefits it has provided to the global technological infrastructure.
Linux For Developers is designed to introduce students to the Linux operating system and teach them how to work comfortably at the command line.
Students will learn important skills such as learning how to separate the kernel from the Linux operating system, and how to make contributions to it.
Using Git for Distributed Development will focus on using Git for open source software development.
Founded in 2000, The Linux Foundation today provides tools, training and events to scale any open source project, which together deliver an economic impact not achievable by any one company.
