What you'll learn

Training overview

This boot camp is an intense, five-day training designed to teach you the fundamental skills and knowledge required to successfully configure, manage and troubleshoot Linux systems. In addition to Linux’s significant presence in the server room, all the major public cloud providers offer Linux images as a way of speeding up virtual instance creation. Add on the fact that Linux-based Android accounts for approximately 80% of the smartphone market and you’ll find many IT careers are founded on Linux skills.
