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
  • Engage with the safety and Linux kernel community
  • Raise awareness, visibility, and impact of the ELISA community work
  • Bring in new contributors to the ELISA community
  • Promote ELISA use-cases and gather relevant use cases for WGs to investigate

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.
