I'll be presenting "Real World Job Skills the Free Software Way" at Ohio LinuxFest next month: http://www.ohiolinux.org/talks#REALWORLD
If free or open software has ever helped get you a job, please let me know! (Consulting and freelance are not what I'm talking about: I'm specifically talking about a full-time job at a company.) Either leave a comment here, or email me at skippy at skippy.net
. I'd like to have some body of anecdotes to supplement the remarks I'm preparing.
