Panel Discussion: How I got my Linux Dream Job

von Anika Kehrer (LinuxTag e. V.)

Have you ever heard of a programmer? For sure. But what about a lead developer? Have a rough idea? If it comes to an Senior Software Systems Architect Advisor, most are confused: What are those folks actually doing? What did they do to obtain on of the fancy job titles on their business cards?

Join our panel of selected Linux and Open Source professionals and learn about their education, their career plan, their job objectives, day-to-day routines, and pitfalls they circumvented in the course of their career track first-hand.

On the moderated panel on comfy sofas, we ask developers, sysadmins, scrum masters, QA testers, system architects, driver maintainers, web designer and devops system engineers to reveal their education. We peek about handicraft and qualifications. We nag our guests about their motivation and ask about tools and techniques they use in their jobs.
