Academia Program

Realigning the planets

Remy Melodie

Develop your skills on your own terms

The goal of the Academia Program is to make our open and inclusive vision of the cloud a reality.
To do that, we pledge to provide students with knowledge that is vendor agnostic that uses as much open source technology as possible with as many useful and transferable skills as possible to help broaden their career opportunities.

This program also aims to improve the autonomy of students, and to help them develop the skills they need, on their own terms.

In a few words: Realigning the planets.
