It’s uncontested that open source communities have been at the center of innovation for decades, enabling and accelerating innovation through distributed developers’ contributions.

However, many more are unsure of where they stand, or even how to get started on validating their skills outside of their regular day-to-day operations. There are hundreds of different certifications available in the world, but where should new and inexperienced systems administrators start?

By now, you have probably adjusted to where the glare comes from on your computer screen as you try to conference call from the living room or exactly which light to turn on to give you that movie-star-in-quarantine look when you flip on your webcam for your team meetings. We are in very unique times for many work professionals.
Many of us are accustomed to getting dressed, commuting into the office, sitting down at a desk, and enjoying the occasional water-cooler talk or team lunch. Now, thanks to the amazing efforts of those companies who can afford to work virtually, we are instead waking up and trying to juggle personal and work commitments from our homes.
