Red Hat's Layoffs Included Fedora Program Manager
When Red Hat laid off 4% of its global staff, Fedora Program Manager Ben Cotton was "a member of that 4%," according to a new post on Cotton's blog: I've received so much support from people since the news started spreading. It's like that end scene of "It's a Wonderful Life" and I'm George Bailey. I'm proud of the contributions I've made to the Fedora community over the last five years, and it feels good to have others recognize that. Cotton joined Red Hat in 2018, but "I was a Fedora contributor long before" Cotton writes, adding later that "I fully intend to still be participating in the Fedora community when my account hits the 20-year mark in May 2029." (Cotton's first foray into Fedora was joining its Docs team in 2009, and then volunteering to be the Docs project leader in 2011...) And the blog post adds that professionally Cotton is "already pursuing a few opportunities... In the meantime, I have (at least) a few weeks to relax for a bit." I've told folks that if Fedora falls off the rails, then I have failed. I'm working with Matthew, Justin, and others to ensure coverage of the core job duties one way or another. I've worked hard over the years to automate tasks that can be automated. The documentation is far more comprehensive than what I inherited. No doubt there are gaps in what I've left for my successors. However, my goal is that in a few months, nobody will notice that I'm gone. That's my measure of success... As to what the broader implication behind the loss of my position might be, I don't know. There's no indication that my role was targeted specifically. There are definitely people in Red Hat who continue to view Fedora as strategically important.

Despite Layoffs, Open Source and Linux Skills are Still in Demand
ZDNet reports that Jim Zemlin, executive director at the Linux Foundation, recently noted rounds of tech-industry layoffs "in the name of cost-cutting." But then Zemlin added that "open source is countercyclical to these trends. The Linux Foundation itself, for instance, had its best first quarter ever." As Hilary Carter, SVP of research and communications at the Linux Foundation, said in her keynote speech at Open Source Summit North America in Vancouver, Canada: "In spite of what the headlines are saying, the facts are 57% of organizations are adding workers this year." Carter was quoting figures from the Linux Foundation's latest job survey, which was released at the event. Other research also points to brighter signs in tech employment trends. CompTIA's recent analysis of the latest Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) data suggests the tech unemployment rate climbed by just 2.3% in April. In fact, more organizations plan to increase their technical staff levels rather than decrease. The demand for skilled tech talent remains strong, particularly in fast-developing areas, such as cloud and containers, cybersecurity, and artificial intelligence and machine learning. So, what do these all areas of technology have in common? The answer is they're all heavily dependent on open source and Linux technologies. While layoffs are happening at Microsoft, Amazon, Google, IBM, and even Red Hat, "the Linux Foundation found senior technical roles are seeing the biggest cuts," the article points out. "New hiring is focused on developers and IT managers." And companies are also spending more on training for existing technical staff, "driven by the fact that there aren't enough experts in hot technologies, such as Kubernetes and generative AI, to go around." Interestingly, a college degree is no longer seen as such a huge benefit. Businesses responding to the Linux Foundation's research felt upskilling (91%) and certifications (77%) are more important than a university education (58%) when it comes to addressing technology needs.
