"Daemon News, a provider of BSD news and services, announced this week the availability of several BSD system administration training classes. The hands-on, multi-day classes beginning in November will be held in the Salt Lake City, Utah; San Diego, California; San Francisco, California; and Seattle, Washington, areas."
"Upcoming classes include OpenBSD, NetBSD, and FreeBSD training with an emphasis on installations, fundamental maintenance skills and common network services administration. The training courses have been developed to teach how to administer BSD operating systems in networking environments.Now's your big chance to go get training and travel to a nice city in the western US. (Article trimmed a bit for space.)
The OpenBSD classes -- to be held in the Seattle, Washington, area -- will cover the fundamentals of OpenBSD system administration, including installation (on i386 hardware), system services, installing software packages, configuring and building kernels, network configuration, and more. (Details can be found at http://www.bsdmall.com/openbsdadmin.html .)
"Our one-on-one approach to training allows us to tailor the classes to the students who attend," said Chris Coleman, the FreeBSD instructor. "This allows the students to build on the skills they already have."
Daemon News' NetBSD and OpenBSD training will by taught in partnership by Puget Sound Technology , a Washington-state company specializing in open source and BSD technical services. The company teaches classes covering Unix skills and monthly workshops introducing a variety of open source software, such as Apache, Exim and Samba.
"In addition to BSD-specific administration, the OpenBSD and NetBSD courses will cover common techniques for auditing and improving Unix system security and beginning Apache Web Server and Postfix mail server administration," said Jeremy C. Reed of Puget Sound Technology.
"It was a great course -- it helped me fill in a lot of gaps in my knowledge," said Paul Warner, a developer who attended a previous Daemon News class. "The instructor took time to tailor it to fit my needs."
