Linux Server Skills for Windows Administrators - David Clinton from Pluralsight


Linux Server Skills for Windows Administrators
David Clinton
Pluralsight


I will be honest and say that I have started studying Linux a number of times over the last 10+ years. I have managed a few systems running Linux but for the most part have been a Windows or ESXI administrator for most of my corporate career. I have intended to go deeper with Linux often but it always falls to the back burner and the next thing I know a lot of time has passed. I do not see that happening now, for a number of reasons. First in my new role on a DevOps team it is time to buckle down and really get more proficient with Linux. Second David's teaching is so engaging that I am really excited to work through his material; this course was awesome, his new course LPI: Linux Essentials and his book Teach Yourself Linux Administration and Prepare for the LPIC-1 Certification Exams: Complete. Quick. And other stuff he has under development.

This course comes in at 70 minutes. It was so engaging I worked through it twice in a very short time. I made a few notes in my training notebook in Evernote and started a new notebook quick reference Linux commands with brief notes. It must be Davis's years in the front of the class but his course is one of the best I have ever done, that includes 20 years in University, 3 year college program, and numerous courses either live, live virtual classroom or self-paced like those offered through Pluralsight. I can say that for the first time I am excited about learning Linux and believe that I will be able to do it.

This brief course is more than worth the time, it worked as a quick refresher, and I learned a few new tricks. And I highly recommend it!
