Who says you don't get something for nothing? Certainly not the good people over at The Linux Foundation (TLF) who're offering free Linux training. TLF is doing its part for the worldwide Linux community by offering this free training plus the Linux Jobs Board and all of its other services. I paused to write this post before going there to sign-up for the whole list myself.
Linux Training from the Linux Experts
Linux Training from The Linux Foundation features instructors and content straight from the leaders of the Linux developer community. Attendees receive Linux training that is vendor-neutral, technically advanced and created with the actual leaders of the Linux development community themselves. The courses give attendees the broad, foundational knowledge and networking needed to thrive in their careers today. With in person or virtual training, Linux training from the Linux Foundation can keep you or your colleagues ahead of the curve on Linux essentials.
Here is a preliminary list of Linux Webinar courses offered:
“An Introduction to Git,” by kernel maintainer and TAB chair James Bottomley;
· “Linux System Troubleshooting and Tuning” and “Linux Administration 101,” by Linux author and community manager Joe “Zonker” Brockmeier;
· “How to Work with the Linux community,” by LWN.net editor and kernel developer Jon Corbet;
· “A Linux Filesystem Overview” and “Linux Virtualized Storage,” by TAB member and kernel developer Christoph Hellwig;
· “Btrfs: An Intro and Update” to the new file system for Linux, by project lead and TAB member Chris Mason; and
· “Linux Performance Tuning,” by North America’s first kernel developer Ted Ts’o.
Why is TLF giving away thousands of dollars worth of training? Growing the Linux community and interest in Linux is part of their charter. There are no strings and no fees attached to the training. If you're interested in learning more about Linux or parts of it, who better to teach you than the people doing the actual programming? Some disinterested third-party, perhaps?
You like Linux because you get the source so get your Linux training from the source and the people who supply it.
Please write back and let me know how you like the courses.
