I’ve been a Linux System Administrator for over 10 years and have been using Unix/Linux based Operating Systems for 20+ years. Hopefully that’s given me some experience which I can impart and help you learn the different areas common for a Sys Admin. We’ll cover a lot of ground on this course and I’ll try fitting in those key elements that will help you become a Linux Sys Admin.
