Course Number: 95-799
Linux & Open Source
This course covers the Linux operating system and its related applications. The focus of the course is two-fold.
One component is hands-on technical experience with installing, configuring, and administering Linux systems. This will be done partly through in-class lectures and labs, but a significant amount of the hands-on work will be done by the students outside of class time.
The other component of the course is to develop an understanding of how Linux fits into enterprise IT environments, its strengths and weaknesses, and the economic, social, political, and legal forces acting on it. This will be done partly through in-class discussion and partly through outside reading.
