SUSE offers software scholars new programme

JOHANNESBURG – SUSE, a pioneer in open source software, is empowering students around the globe through a new academic programme.
Through the initiative, SUSE is sharing no- or low-cost open source software, training curriculum, tools and support to help schools, universities, teaching hospitals and other academic organisations use, teach and develop open source software with their students.
The curriculum includes courses for SUSE Linux Certified Administrator (SCA), among others.
Matthew Lee, Regional Manager for SUSE Africa, said the company was readying teachers and students for the future with free access to our extensive knowledge of technology and software.
The SUSE Academic Programme, he said was a simple way for qualifying academic institutions to experience the value of SUSE technology, training materials and customised offerings with no participation fee or minimum order requirement.
“We’re committed to helping schools with the tools and technology they need to prepare students for tomorrow,” Lee said.
Al Gillen, group vice president, Software Development and Open Source, IDC, said academic institutions provided an important path for administrators- and developers-in-training.
“Investments like these (SUSE’s) will boost innovation and choice in the marketplace in coming years,” said Gillen.
