Interview prep - Entry Level Linux systems administration
- Some basic Linux exposure
This course will introduce the students to Linux troubleshooting commands that they apply in their current jobs or build on their skills in Linux to get a job as a systems administrator. The students will just need to have basic information about Linux and it's directory structure. We will use commands line ping, traceroute, tcpdump, etc. to troubleshoot our Linux based machines. At the end of the course students will feel confident about their Linux background. I will also provide exercises and quizzes and interview questions for you to get help in the area of Linux interviews if you are shooting to get a job as a systems administrator.

I have been in a technology role for more than 20 years now. Started off working at Sun Microsystems back in 1996 as an entry level systems administrator. I have worked for companies like Netscape, Tivoli Systems, Amazon, Cisco Systems and most recently IBM.
My expertise has been in Linux, Windows, Network, Virtualization and most recently in Cloud Computing.
I have a bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering from Wichita State University.
I have previously taught courses at community colleges and have taken technical training online.
I think I can explain technical subjects in a very systematic and easy to follow manner.
