New 2018 Open Source Technology Jobs Report Released Today: Rapid Growth in Demand for Open Source Tech Talent



  • Seventh Annual Report from The Linux Foundation and Dice.com Reveals Demand for Linux Coding is Back on Top as Most Sought After Open Source Skill and Demand for Container Technologies Soars

    NEW YORK and SAN FRANCISCO, June 19, 2018 – The need for Open Source Technology skills are on the rise and companies and organizations continue to increase their recruitment of open source technology talent, while offering additional training and certification opportunities for existing staff in order to fill skills gaps, according to the 2018 Open Source Jobs Report, released today by The Linux Foundation and Dice. 87% of hiring managers report difficulty finding open source talent, and nearly half (48%) report their organizations have begun to support open source projects with code or other resources for the explicit reason of recruiting individuals with those software skills. After a hiatus, Linux skills are back on top as the most sought after skill with 80% of hiring managers looking for tech professionals with Linux expertise. 55% of employers are now also offering to pay for employee certifications, up from 47% in 2017 and only 34% in 2016.

    “Open source technology talent is in high demand, as Linux and other open source software dominates software development,” said Linux Foundation Executive Director Jim Zemlin. “I am encouraged that that companies are recognizing more and more each day that open source technology is the way to advance their businesses. The Linux Foundation, our members and the open source ecosystem are focused on ensuring training and certification opportunities are highly accessible to everyone who wants to seek them out and we are supporting the developer community and its growth in every possible way.”

    This is the seventh year Dice®, the leading career site for technology and engineering professionals, and The Linux Foundation, the nonprofit organization enabling mass innovation through open source, are partnering to produce this jobs report. As with the last two reports, the focus is on all aspects of open source software; the first four years focused more specifically on Linux professionals.

    The 2018 Open Source Jobs Report examines trends in open source careers, which skills are most in demand, motivation for open source professionals and how employers attract and retain qualified talent.

    “Hiring skilled technology professionals remains a real pain point for employers and our report shows newer skills like containers are growing in popularity, putting more pressure on organizations to find good talent to carry out necessary projects,” said Art Zeile, President and CEO of DHI Group, Inc., parent company of Dice.

    Key findings from the 2018 Open Source Jobs Report include:

    • Hiring open source talent is a priority for 83% of hiring managers, an increase from 76% in 2017.
    • Linux is back on top as the most in-demand open source skill category, with 80% of hiring managers looking for Linux talent, making it required knowledge for most entry-level open source careers, likely due to the strong popularity of cloud and container technologies, as well as DevOps practices, all of which typically run on Linux.
    • Containers are rapidly growing in popularity and importance, with 57% of hiring managers seeking that expertise, up from only 27% last year.
    • There’s a gulf between the views of hiring managers and open source pros on the effectiveness of efforts to improve diversity in the industry, with only 52% of employees seeing efforts as effective compared to 70% of employers.
    • Hiring managers are moving away from hiring outside consultants, increasingly opting to train existing employees on new open source technologies and help them gain certifications.
    • Many organizations are getting involved in open source with the express purpose of attracting developers.

    The annual report features data from more than 750 hiring managers at corporations, small and medium businesses (SMBs), government organizations, and staffing agencies across the globe—as well as responses from more than 6,500 open source professionals worldwide.

Tmux Commands

screen and tmux

A comparison of the features (or more-so just a table of notes for accessing some of those features) for GNU screen and BSD-licensed tmux.

The formatting here is simple enough to understand (I would hope). ^ means ctrl+, so ^x is ctrl+x. M- means meta (generally left-alt or escape)+, so M-x is left-alt+x

It should be noted that this is no where near a full feature-set of either group. This - being a cheat-sheet - is just to point out the most very basic features to get you on the road.

Trust the developers and manpage writers more than me. This document is originally from 2009 when tmux was still new - since then both of these programs have had many updates and features added (not all of which have been dutifully noted here).

    “Making these resources available to Chinese audiences in their native language will encourage even greater adoption of and participation with open source projects,” said Chris Aniszczyk, CTO of Cloud Native Computing Foundation and co-founder of the TODO Group. The guides span various stages of the open source project lifecycle, from initial planning and formation to winding down a project.

    The 10 guides now available in Mandarin include topics such as:

    Creating an Open Source Program by Chris Aniszczyk, Cloud Native Computing Foundation; Jeff McAffer, Microsoft; Will Norris, Google; and Andrew Spyker, Netflix Using Open Source Code by Ibrahim Haddad, Samsung Research America Participating in Open Source Communities by Stormy Peters, Red Hat; and Nithya Ruff, Comcast Recruiting Open Source Developers by Guy Martin, Autodesk; Jeff Osier-Mixon, Intel Corporation; Nithya Ruff; and Gil Yehuda, Oath Measuring Your Open Source Program’s Success by Christine Abernathy, Facebook; Chris Aniszczyk; Joe Beda, Heptio; Sarah Novotny, Google; and Gil Yehuda

    The translated guides were launched at the LinuxCon + ContainerCon + CloudOpen China conference in Beijing, where The Linux Foundation also welcomed Chinese Internet giant Tencent as a Platinum Member.
