Take our sysadmin masterclass in Linux User & Developer 139

Posted by Gavin Thomas

Also inside we have tutorials for building Android apps with Kivy, analysing code and creating your own CCTV system along with a report from our very first Raspberry Jam

This month we ask the questions: what does it take to be a system administrator? We take you through the core tasks of working as a Linux sysadmin, mail servers, web servers databases and more as we attempt to teach you the skills required to get a job in Linux.

In this issue we also have a full report on our Raspberry Jam that we held in Poole, Dorset in early April. Find out how people of all ages enjoyed a day of learning and hacking by the sea with Raspberry Pi’s and Pi-powered machines. We also have several Raspberry Pi tutorials in the issue which include slow-motion video, tilt controllers with the XLoBorg and the low down on the GPIO pins.

      A great free resource for Linux system administration training is the “The Urban Penguin”.

      There are over 500 videos available starting with Linux Essentials introductory training, moving through to LPI (Linux Professional Institute) and moving onto the technically challenging iSCSI and Virtualization. Lots of stuff on Raspberry Pi too.
