Linux Foundation Joins edX, Free Intro Course This Summer!

Want to take a Linux course this Summer, that has been created as an introductory course by the Linux Foundation? How about instead of shelling out over $2,000 for it like similar Foundation courses, you take it at absolutely no cost other than your time? Take a look! Whether needing a refresher or first-time-ever introduction, this looks to be a good quality course.

Snippet from Page: “More than 20 years ago, Linus Torvalds sparked an open source revolution with a short email declaring he was doing a new project “just for fun.” Today, Linux powers 98% of the world’s super computers, most of the servers powering the Internet, the majority of financial trades worldwide and tens of millions of Android mobile phones and consumer devices…The Linux Foundation is pleased to partner with edX to deliver our Introduction to Linux course to anyone, anywhere in the world, at any time. We hope it provides an entry point for students into the personal and professional rewards of being part of the Linux community.”

Snippet from Page: “This course explores the various tools and techniques commonly used by Linux programmers, system administrators and end users to achieve their day-to-day work in a Linux environment. It is designed for experienced computer users who have limited or no previous exposure to Linux…Upon completion of this training you should have a good working knowledge of Linux, from both a graphical and command line perspective, allowing you to easily navigate through any of the three major Linux distributions.”

I’m definitely signing up. For other learning resources, make sure to take a look at my Online Learning Resource Listing on HalfwayToInfinite.
