ELISA Ambassadors are technical leaders who are passionate about the mission of the ELISA Project, recognized for their expertise in functional safety and linux kernel development, and willing to help others to learn about the community and how to contribute. 

The ELISA Ambassador Program is created to bring together a group of technical leaders to collectively 

  • Educate others on the mission and goals of the ELISA Project
  • Raise awareness, visibility, and impact of the ELISA community work
  • Promote the results of use case analysis by ELISA Working Groups
  • Engage with the safety and Linux kernel community
  • Bring in and onboard new contributors to the ELISA community

ELISA Ambassadors are qualified to speak on behalf of the ELISA Project at conferences and local events and meetups. They’re available to contribute tutorials, articles, and blogs. And they’re willing to share their knowledge and help mentor and onboard new contributors into the community.

ELISA Ambassadors have been positioned as thought leaders through the various ELISA Project and The Linux Foundation channels. It’s a great way for the Ambassadors to build professional profile and to raise visibility not only for the ELISA Project but also for the Ambassadors themselves in the open source community.
