> Some of the things the students struggle comprehending is:
> 1) Linux is a real thing and the industry uses it. Most students have a
> hard time thinking beyond their laptop workstation and gaming.
> 2) What does a system admin, dev ops, network admin, etc actually do? Many
> students don't know what it really means to work in IT.
> I'm hoping if they hear from someone in the industry, that it will
> reinforce what I've been telling them and help better prepare them for a
> career.
> I have 2 classes on Tuesday/Thursday 1:30 and 3 pm. Just looking for
> someone (or more than one) to speak for about 10-20 mins in one or both
> classes.
> Anyone interested?
