[Announcement] Seattle Area BSD class

Contributed by Dengue on from the support-your-local-daemon dept.

Puget Sound Technology, a provider of outsourced open source administration and tech support services, is teaching the fundamentals of OpenBSD administration, Sept. 16 - 19, in Seattle, Washington. The curriculum will include starting and stopping system services, system logging, BSD file system hierarchy, user and group management, basics of networking, installing third-party software, and customizing the kernel. The hands-on training will also cover setting up DNS caching and authoritative DNS servers, Apache web server basics, introduction to Postfix and SMTP for mail services, and basic packet filtering.

    Wish I could attend just for the fun of it.

    Now if only local colleges here (such as CDI) would train in *BSD rather than RedHat, more people would have a clue. Quite frankly, it makes me sick when colleges and schools teach Linux (claiming they're teaching unix) using a GUI such as KDE. Click here, click there now you created a folder in / with drwxrwxrwx permissions (oops, we mean directory).

    IMO that's no way to teach the fundamentals of UNIX. *BSD or maybe Slackware (if Linux) I think would be the better way to teach linux/unix.

    Just my $0.02.

      I like your 2 cents.

      Not to troll about linux but *BSD is much stable and just works. The thing I don't about linux is that there are over 100+ distros out there. There are some but reasons but I am going to flame against linux. I use linux on my laptop it is a great OS.

      In OpenBSD We Trust
      In FreeBSD We Serve

      I agree. Linux is becoming less and less UNIX-like every day. Some distro's are degenerating faster than others, but still...
      The BSD's stay closer to the UNIX-tradition imho.
