Global Summit

CC Global Summit has grown every year as hundreds of leading activists, advocates, librarians, educators, lawyers, technologists, and more have joined us for discussion and debate, workshops and planning, talks and community building.

Career Change through Open Source and Open Education

Join Evan Leibovitch, Linux Professional Institute and Grif Peterson, P2PU on October 21 at 17:30 - 18:00 UTC for a great chat on career change through open source and open education.

The Linux Learning Circle program enables libraries to offer accessible career-change training, facilitated by existing library staff and without the need for onsite subject experts. Students are offered no-cost education (using CC-licensed materials) and credentials towards careers in the growing field of Linux and open source software. It is specifically designed to offer career-shifting options to those displaced by COVID-19 or other circumstances. The panel will introduce the program and solicit community feedback, adding experience gained through trials running in Toronto libraries.
