In the view of the fact that the number of Ukrainian veterans increases on a daily basis, we are especially pleased to share that today, on October 26th 2022, Linux Foundation and Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) announced their partnership with Razom for Ukraine on Razom’s Project Veteranius. The partnership will aim “to provide access to technology education for Ukrainian veterans, their families, and Ukrainians in need. Leveraging its expertise in IT Training programs, Linux Foundation will help Razom make three of LF’s training courses accessible to Ukrainians through translations and help solidify partnerships with other IT-focused organizations that will make courses scalable to large student populations” – as stated in the press-release.
Veteranius is a three-year-old Razom’s initiative created to assist Ukrainian veterans in getting their first IT job. Veteranius training programs combine the development of technical skills with practical projects, mentorship opportunities, and emotional and psychological support.
Ihor Dvoretskyi, Senior Developer Advocate at Cloud Native Computing Foundation, said: “We are thrilled to partner with Razom for Ukraine to enable free and open educational opportunities for Ukrainian veterans, their family members, and other people affected by the war. This program is a wonderful opportunity for current and prospective veterans of the Ukrainian Army, as well as their relatives, looking to start a career in technology.”
“Razom is very grateful for the opportunity to partner with the Linux Foundation on this initiative! These classes on the topics of Linux, Kubernetes, and Git will enable the Veteranius team to expand the scope of the existing training program and allow an opportunity to explore a more broad set of IT positions,” said Dora Chomiak, President, Razom.
