We are commited to the communities dedicated to promote, create and distribute knowledge accordingly to the open source software´s philosophy.

Despite the crescent popularity of FOSS, is is still very hard to find talented people that can prove a certain level of formal education and knowledge regarding these topics, as certifications to validate knowledge about certain disciplines or technologies are very common amongst IT, but rare when it comes to FOSS development. Due to this, professionals who have the required expertise are not usually identified by Human Resources departments, and are not recognized for their knowledge.
We focus on providing useful content, training and certification that cover the following criteria:
We developed introductory contents for people who have not had any relation to FOSS and are not familiarized to IT, as well as didactic material for children.
Education´s trend is focused on content´s availability for everyone, based on sharing philosophy. Unless it is explicitly indicated, the notes for our cpurses and other contents are available under the Creative Commons License BY 2..5 MX, and all coding will be available under BSD License. This way, once contents are published, everybody would have access to them, even under comercial ways by the terms stipulated under the licenses mentioned. It is important to mention that any other certification or course base don published content will not be oficially recognized and Open Intelligence´s usage of name is restricted.
Being this an initiative that was created by communities, we know colaboration in a group is more valuable than individual´s work. Therefore, we are open to develope new content, trainings and certifications with the input of our partners and communities. If interest is shown, and knowledge and necessity of topics are required, we are willing to colaborate in the development of new joint projects, as longs as materials are done under certain quality critera and published under open licenses.
Contents of our courses will be published and updated regularly under the course´s section. Contents will be available as we consider they cover our publishing criteria.
Amongst the FOSS developers communities, reputation of their members are primarily base don quality, importance and quantity of the coding they share and the projects they are involved in. The big names that have gained certain fame amongst FOSS es preceded by their work better than a certificate. In Open Intelligence, we are serious about what being a guru or a hacker is, we respect their work, and we do not missuse those Word in our courses and certifications. We don´t certify nor teach people how to be hackers, but we help them find their way through.
Open Intelligence aims to create and identify capable and talented people to overcome the challenges that our clients share with us and require expertise and professionalism to meet their necessities. That is the reason why we have developed entailment strategies between community members, educational institutions, government and different private organizations to achieve shared goals.
There is a wide community of developers, integrators, managers, implanters and open source and FOSS users, which is the principal source of talent and projects, although it requires a formal acknowledge and education, as well as a continuous learning that complement its abilities to achieve their personal and professional goals.
The AMI is a Civil Association that promotes the use and development of IT related to digital content, videogames and mobile technologies. Its main goal is to manage resources gotten by financial aid to promote trainings and affordable -or even cost free- events. Since AMI is required to generate projects and get financial support, the subsidies might considerably change.
In Open Intelligence we aim to publish most of the contents that can build the elementary information for our courses and tests under free licences. These contents can be accesed from our course section. As long as contents developed meet the publishig and sharing criteria, these will be immediatly published.
Open Intelligence, together with our partners have decided to find better ways of making our courses and certifications affordable for professionals and students willing to receive them.
