The lessons in this Linux certification series will prepare you for the Linux Professional Institute LPIC-1 certification exam. While the series' main focus will be on Linux, where there's a parallel or overlap with the professional administration of deployments on Amazon's AWS architecture, we'll also highlight the skills you'll need to integrate the cloud into your Linux portfolio.

The cloud is the future, and Linux skills are the tools you'll need to get there.

This first lesson will introduce you to:

  • the Linux ecosystem
  • the structure and expectations of the LPIC exam
  • the way the eleven lessons that make up this series will be organized, and
  • some critical survival skills that will help place your Linux skills on a solid foundation.

The next lesson in this series will focus on System Architecture.

David taught high school for twenty years, worked as a Linux system administrator for five years, and has been writing since he could hold a crayon between his fingers. His childhood bedroom wall has since been repainted.

Having worked directly with all kinds of technology, David derives great pleasure from completing projects that draw on as many tools from his toolkit as possible.

Besides being a Linux system administrator with a strong focus on virtualization and security tools, David writes technical documentation and user guides, and creates technology training videos.

His favorite technology tool is the one that should be just about ready for release tomorrow. Or Thursday.
