     学生们要通过两轮不同技术主题的测试(包括红帽企业 Linux系统管理,网络管理,安全管理和虚拟化任务)才能入围最后的角逐。挑战的考题系统是基于OpenShift平台这一红帽免费的,自动扩展的平台即服务(PaaS)来提供的,由新加坡理工学院学生林国玮开发,真正贴切了挑战赛的主题“我参与,我奉献”。

     获奖学生李伟胜获得一部三星S3手机,一个树莓派(Raspberry Pi)微型电脑,奖杯证书以及红帽培训机会或者为期一个月在红帽北京或者新加坡公司进行实习的机会。红帽挑战赛的决赛选手也会获得一个树莓派(Raspberry Pi)微型电脑和参赛证书。

      非常高兴参加红帽挑战赛,也感谢红帽公司提供和其它地区的学生一起进行开源知识交流的机会.红帽挑战赛相比于其它赛事来说,首先在业内知名度比较高,而且更注重实际操作能力,对我未来的择业很有帮助.”李伟胜表示。

      本届挑战赛的亚军是同样来自新加坡南洋理工学院的学生谢詠翔,季军是来自台湾键行科技大学的刘朝中。今年挑战赛的三名获胜者都通过了红帽的认证计划(RHCE),这项计划是通过红帽提供给包括大学和理工学院在内的学术项目- Red Hat Academy延伸而来的。

     Red Hat Academy是一项专门针对动手能力和执行测试而设计的定制型学术Linux课程,目标是帮助那些承担相关IT课程的学生在ICT行业的事业奠定坚实的基础。红帽公司为学校提供百分百的网络配置和网络管理项目的支持,帮助他们拥有启动和继续Linux课程的技术和专业经验.

      在最近公布的国际数据公司2013年预测报告中,分析师们强调人才匮乏的问题正在日益成为企业创新和技术接受度的主要差异因素。红帽公司正在和本地学术机构合作来提供相关的定制化培训项目来帮助培养学生,而这些学生正是未来IT专业人员的新一代,让他们具备相关的知识和技能来弥补日益扩大的市场空白,来推动ICT行业的创新。
