"Some Linux Foundation members don't do anything just a little.
That's certainly the case with Paré, a software engineer
based in Montreal who traveled nearly 4,000 miles by car last
summer to attend the first ever LinuxCon (part of a 9,000-mile
summer road trip). Apparently, his trek did nothing to slow him
down, because upon arriving at LinuxCon, the BUG community gave him
an award for enthusiasm.
"Last summer is also when Paré became a Linux Foundation
member, taking advantage of both discounted event registration and
training courses, including Linux Foundation training courses
"Developing Linux Device Drivers" and "Linux Kernel Internals and
""Those two courses taught me a lot, were practical, and the
teacher used real life experiences. I'm even thinking of retaking
'Developing Linux Device Drivers' since it is now offered as a
5-day course," said Paré."
