In its simplest form Linux is an operating system, but when you begin to explore and delve into the software further you will learn that it’s an OS like no other. This is due to the fact that it is an open source project, meaning it is developed upon by users – the strong and vast Linux community design and implement versions of the Operating System, meaning that Linux is more varied and versatile than Windows or OS X Operating Systems. Linux has grown in recent decades, it has lost its tag of a hobby project for programmers to let off steam in their own time and is now a bona fide business tool, with the latest valuations placing a $25 billion valuation on the Linux ecosystem; one of the leading Linux distributors, Red Hat, reported revenue of $374 million in the last quarter of 2014 – these facts show there’s money to be made in Linux if individuals have the appropriate skillset. The growth in business validity of Linux has come on the back of the system progressively becoming more of a force in computing, Linux powers everything from the New York Stock Exchange to super computers and consumer devices (with a version of the popular Ubuntu system running on a smartphone receiving strong reviews from the tech industry).
Our Introduction to Linux course is a fantastic opportunity to learn Linux from a complete beginner stage. Linux is an under-utilised and often under-appreciated operating system that is completely customisable and a basis for a variety of different operating systems that are becoming popular in the consumer sphere (most recently Google’s own Chrome OS). This Linux training will introduce learners to a variety of different flavours of Linux, with the popular Ubuntu system taking the foreground in this introductory training program.
If Linux is one of those buzz terms that you’ve heard mentioned in regards to IT for years but have never fully understood, then this course is for you. Current estimations predict that over 1,000 developers from 100 different companies contribute to every kernel release, this course will give you the ground knowledge that will allow you to build on this platform and navigate different versions of Linux with confidence.
With Linux boasting less viruses than Windows, as well as a faster boot speed and improved community support, maybe it’s time to make the switch to Linux – this course will tell you everything you need to know before making this decision, as well as taking you through the implementation of this change.
