Dear Ubuntu community/Canonical team,
I’m currently working on a project for a global engagement seminar where I build a theoretical/hypothetical study aboard course. The main point of the project is to consider how to engage globally in a meaningful way, since study abroad isn’t an option right now. I’m also aware Canonical doesn’t offer internships, so this course I’m designing is purely hypothetical and more along the lines of “Wouldn’t it be cool if…?” than practicality.
I’ve decided that I wanted to make a course that offers a hands-on, internship-like experience as a supplement to my college’s operating system course in which students would learn more about operating systems by assisting Canonical in shipping an Ubuntu release. Ideally, this would take place in London at Canonical’s HQ in Southwark. One of the major aspects of the project planning is considering the societal experience; i.e., the societal aspects of the country we’ve selected. I figured a good place to start would be looking at the corporate culture at Canonical, since that would be a smaller scope.
For those working at Canonical, what’s the culture like? I’m curious to know what the experience is like, at least more on the social/cultural side of things.
Note: I initially asked this in the Ubuntu Podcast Chatter Telegram group, and I was recommended to post here. I apologize in advance for not having this properly categorized; I wasn’t sure what categories would fit.
Thanks in advance.
- Added where the theoretical ICA would take place for clarification purposes.
