Interest in a self-study linux program?


#1

Hey, at work I’ve been getting ready to teach some googlers about some basic networking and linux skills and I figured why not spread the love and get some dual use out of the program.

If I designed a ‘mega’ solo study guide for newbies to get their foot in with the IT industry would that be something y’all would be interested in? I was thinking about covering basic Linux command line, basic networking, and a bit of shell scripting for those interested.

Thoughts on this? What would you want added?


#2

Will there be homework or would it be purely reading a series documents?


#3

Reading series, with links to useful labs and content I’ve found across the web. You could also ask questions in the thread if you are stuck or don’t understand something.


#4

I’ve seen several posts about firewalls and iptables, those could be useful.

I’ve been wanting to setup my local firewall to disable traffic if not connected to a VPN but it needs access to the vpn in order to connect, haven’t quite figured that one out yet.

I’d do it. I have been using lin for years but only as a hobbyist and I am sure that I could learn something.
I am an English teacher as well so if you would simply like someone to proofread it, have a second set of eyes on it, I could do my best. I am not in North America so you would have to deal with a time difference though (sorry man).


#6

yes please do!
as a hardware tech this could be useful for noobs to learn how to search their hardware using cli
I would be interested myself 1 to proofread and 2 to have as a handy reference guide. (my memory is still good but whose to say what its going to be in the future)
