Learn how to administer Linux, the most common operating system in the cloud. While the 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 will also highlight the skills you'll need to integrate the cloud into your Linux portfolio.

Besides a general overview of Linux, this path will introduce you to Linux system architecture, boot and package management, the command line, working with text strings, and filesystems.

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.
