It’s time for our annual Linux Foundation membership drive! And this year, we’re particularly excited because we’re offering a very special incentive to everyone who becomes an Individual Member.
Why become a Linux Foundation member?
Individual members of The Linux Foundation help advance the Linux operating system and collaborative development and support the work of Linux creator Linus Torvalds. Membership also comes with additional benefits. As a member, you get exclusive benefits like:
- A Linux.com email address
- Employee purchase pricing from Dell, HP and Lenovo
- Event discounts
- Special subscriptions to industry publications
- And this year...
Each new member who joins today through August 8, 2015 at 5:00 p.m. PT will be able to register for the Linux Foundation System Administrator (LFCS) or Certified Engineer (LFCE) certification exam for $49, an offer not available since the program was announced last August. This price represents a nearly 85 percent discount off the regular cost of LFCS and 35 percent discount off of the LFCE certification exam. When coupled with the price of Linux Foundation membership of $99, the benefits of certification and membership pay for themselves many times over.
You can sign up for individual membership here: https://www.linuxfoundation.org/about/join/individual
We look forward to having you as part of the Foundation as we work to support Linux and open source!
