Next “Theory and Practice of Linux System Administration” Class Starts Feb. 13

The next session of my class, “Theory and Practice of Linux System Administration” will be run February 13 through 17, 1012.

Taken from my own experiences accumulated during more than 14 years of using Linux, and developed using my knowledge and experience as a course developer and trainer for both IBM and Red Hat, this class covers the practical aspects of Linux System Administration. It builds upon the foundation of the “Philosophy of Linux” in a way that helps the student understand how and why things are done as they are.

Our courses are always highly rated and well reviewed. Here are some comments from previous students taken directly from the course evaluation forms.

Seats Available

There are still seats available for my Theory and Practice of Linux System Administration class which starts on Monday, January 23 and runs for five days.

Course Description

The student will learn about the history of Linux and the philosophy of Linux and how it applies to the everyday tasks that she will be expected to perform. The student will install a current Fedora Linux system on common Intel hardware, using various installation options to customize the final result. The students will learn to use the command line interface (CLI) and many basic Linux commands along with the vi editor. More advanced commands such as sed and awk will be covered and combining all of these commands into short command line programs will be discussed and the student will have opportunity to use them in lab projects.

This course covers the Linux boot sequence and the traditional SystemV init scripts as well as an introduction to the new systemd daemon for startup and daemon management. The student will learn to manage users and software packages. Networking, security, processes, filesystems and Logical Volume Management will be covered in detail.
