Linux-Skills Foundation Launches March 6

Registration has opened for children and youth competitions on Linux, known as “Linux-Skills”, as part of the Technocakatus Technical Creativity Festival. The competitions are divided into two nominations: Alt-Skills (Alt Linux) and Calculate-Skills (Calculate Linux), with participants grouped by age into 10-13 years old, 14-17 years old, and 18-22 years old.

The qualifying stage will take place from March 6 to March 10, 2024, where participants will undergo testing. The final stage will be held from March 25 to April 1, 2024, where participants will be given access to a virtual stand. Here, they will need to configure the network, transfer working stations from MS Windows OS to Linux, and then set up Linux.

The competitions will utilize distributions of Simply Linux and Calculate Linux, as well as OpenWRT on the router. The final will be hosted at supporting venues in Moscow, Moscow Region (Shchelkovo), and St. Petersburg. Interested parties can also organize a supporting site in their own city for the final with prior agreement from the organizers.
