This summer I worked as a marketing intern at Red Hat in the JBoss Middleware business unit. As you may expect, I learned a lot about marketing and middleware. But I also learned that open source is as much a culture as a software development model.
This internship wasn’t my first experience in a corporate environment. I worked full time after completing my undergraduate studies and while pursuing my Master’s degree in Informatics, and I have seen managers take a very micro-management approach. I’ve noticed how some employers treat employees as if they are numbers rather than assets with unique skills and talents.
