The People Who Support Linux: Driving 4,000 Miles to LinuxCon

"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 Debugging."

""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."
