Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, or more affectionately known as RPI, is my alma mater. It was pretty clear to me early on that it was the right school for me. Behold, the RPI campus computing center (Voorhees Computing Center):
That’s right, it’s inside of a church – they take computing seriously at RPI – obviously a great place to recruit current and future free & open source hackers!
I’ll be at the RPI Spring 2010 Career Fair in Troy, NY with my colleague John (who also started the Inkscape class project) – we’ll be representing Red Hat as two past RPI students. If you are an RPI student and are interested in a career at Red Hat, please stop by our booth at the Armory between 12 – 5 pm tomorrow – say hi and see what opportunities we might have for you!
By the way, I’ll be back on campus this Friday, February 5th to give a talk about Fedora, from 4-5 PM in JEC 3117. More details are at the Rensselaer Center for Open Source website. I’ll have plenty of Fedora swag, so if you’re in the capital region and are interested please stop by and say hi if you can!
