"As open source has become dominant in the technology space, The Linux Foundation saw a huge need for more accessible, quality training options to close the skills gap and ensure there is enough talent in the market to meet demand," said Clyde Seepersad, SVP and General Manager, Training & Certification, The Linux Foundation. "Our partnership with edX has enabled us to make high quality training from expert instructors available to millions of people at no cost.
