Open source jobs: What’s hot, where to look, what to learn

[ Thanks to Carla Schroder for this

“FOSS powers large distributed science and research projects
such as OpenTox and the Avoiding Mass Extinctions Engine (AMEE). It
powers the Internet and the World Wide Web. It powers Google,
Amazon, IBM’s Jeopardy champion Watson, and nearly all of the
world’s top 500 supercomputers. Android, the runaway smartphone,
tablet, and e-reader success, is based on the Linux kernel. The
cloud, which is inevitably settling over us like a great damp fog
bank is FOSS-powered, as are the two best Web browsers that we use
to interface with the cloud, Firefox and Chromium. FOSS powers
cars, televisions, cameras, settop entertainment boxes,
agricultural machinery, high-end movie animation, industrial
production lines, surveillance systems, and ever so much more. It
truly is everywhere, from the tiniest embedded devices to the
largest supercomputers.”
