The power of community is incredibly valuable when adopting a new skill, or seeking a group of folks with like minded interests and passions to collaborate, share advice, mentorship and support. Learning how to work with Red Hat products and use them on the job, can at times be challenging...community allows people to harness a peer support system that enables them to meet their goals.

It's great to see how this community has grown so much in the last couple of years.

I remember RHLC having around 3k members when the project launched in 2018, the amount of people finding this platform useful has increased 15x times! The numbers speak for themselves.

In today's world we all rely on a community for practical purposes. When we are learning new things like OpenShift or Ansible, studying for a Red Hat exam or working on a solution for a work related problem, there is something beautiful about being a part of a group of people who share ideas they feel passionately about. You get the opportunity to talk to like-minded people, to bounce ideas off one another, and most importantly, to ask for help.

When I was working on my RHCA, I had a few issues that the community helped me to resolve. I'll say this again, it's great to see how far the RHLC has come. Having a place to share knowledge and help each other out is what this place is truly all about.

Thank you everyone who's been working behind the scenes to make this happen, and I hope to see a post about "500k member contest" one day!

  • Why is community valuable throughout the learning experience?

For me the main reason to use this community is to get help on a certain technology. When a course has an error somewhere most probably someone has found an workaround or can help you understand the technical situation.

 

But from my point on view the main benefit is one that cannot be specified answering your questions.

What I see as the main benefit is that people learn and help others learn opensource technologies and , most of them if not all, become advocates for the opensource community.

Yes, opensource cannot exist without quality products but without advocates you can have the best technology and nobody will use it.

For me personally the RH contribution to the opensource community made me a fan of Red Hat. If tomorrow RH decides to stop contributing to the opensource community I will switch to whatever fork will be created because the opensource community community will definetly come up with something. But I'm really hoping that doesnt happen.
