Calling All Tech Pros: Linux Showdown 9: The Arena Challenge Needs You Now!

Help FragmasterX save the llamas. Save the world!

TrueAbility and Linode have teamed to launch Linux Showdown 9: The Arena Challenge  to accelerate the hiring of top technical talent for the Linode's new support center located in Haddonfield, NJ. Based on results, participating competitors who prove their skills can be in the running for the open job positions.

Powered by TrueAbility's AbilityScreen, Linux Showdown 9 pits competitors against the clock (and each other) to solve a simulated server crisis to prove their Linux and Drupal troubleshooting skills. For this particular challenge, competitors are placed in a ‘deathmatch’ scenario to help leader FragmasterX and his team of stranded gamers to get server and communication channels back online within 30 minutes before being forced to forfeit. Onlookers can follow with a public leader board throughout the duration of the challenge. Lots of prizes are up for grabs and include:
  • Top spot (1) on the leaderboard:
    • $100 Linode Credit
    • One year of GitHub ($264 value)
    • One Raspberry Pi2
  • Top 5 on the leaderboard
    • $50 Linode Credit
    • One Raspberry Pi2
  • Top 25
    • $25 Linode Credit
The Challenge goes live on April 27 and runs through May 27, 2015.
