Another week has past here at the Linux Academy, with more content and more student success stories. We hope your studies have been going well. Happy learning! (more…)
Welcome to episode three of the Cloud Cadet Podcast. Today we’re joined by our co-hosts, Terry Cox and Anthony James. They’ll be interviewing Linux Academy AWS instructor Christophe, who talks about the relatively new AWS service, Lambda.
Lambda is exciting; you can plug it into mobile and web applications, such as chats, games and more. The way it works is that it removed the need for servers, so you don’t have any of the security and update issues; it’s event-driven code execution. Christophe tells us what that means and how it works. (more…)
Welcome to this episode of the Cloud Cadet Podcast. Today, Anthony and Christophe sit down with Linux Academy’s core OpenStack instructor, Stephen. Stephen has been an instructor with us for just about two years. He features our Linux Essentials course (which is where we suggest everyone should start), but today he’s going to be talking a little bit about AWS.
We’re going to set up a web application firewall, specifically, Barracuda’s WAF. Stephen shows you just how easy it is to use the marketplace to spin up the WAF and configure security groups to get it up and running. (more…)
If you’ve seen our Live Shows, view our blog, or keep up with our website, you’ll know a lot is going on at the Linux Academy lately, so make things a little more accessible we’ll be making weekly posts rounding up new content, new podcasts, and new features we’ve released this past week. And since we’re a community here at Linux Academy, we also want to use these posts to put the spotlight on our many students who pass their various certifications each week. Check back weekly to see what’s up, what’s new, and who has achieved great things alongside us! (more…)
Welcome to the first episode of the Cloud Cadet podcast, brought to you by the Linux Academy. Our goal is to provide you with good how-tos, talk about the current technologies in the cloud, and help you run your cloud to perfection. Meet your hosts, Anthony James, and Christophe.
Anthony is the founder of Linux Academy while Christophe just joined us a few weeks ago and is super excited to keep going. He is the founder and owner of the Scale Your Code podcast, where he interviews all kinds of people from Twitpic, Google, Netflix, and more about the scalability of web performance, web performance, and web security. It is a lot of fun – click here to check it out.
Every episode, we’ll have a guest instructor who’s been working on content for Linux Academy. They talk about what they’ve been doing, the goals behind their courses, and they’ll show us comprehensive step-by-step demos so you can follow in their steps.
All three of them are AWS instructors, so maybe you have an idea of where this is heading: You’ll get a lot of useful knowledge from this show, and you will be particularly interested today if you like Amazon Web Services and Ansible.
We sit down with Terry, who’s been with Linux Academy for about three years. Today he is covering Ansible and the details of using it with AWS. He walks through a quick demo about how to instantiate an EC2 image and explains some of the environmental setup that you have to go through if you are going to use it with AWS. (more…)
For those of you who missed last week’s Live Show, it is now live on YouTube!
During the Live Show, we had a lot of exciting announcements about what we’ll be bringing you, the student, in the first quarter of 2016. So just what is new this quarter at the Linux Academy?
To bring more ways to learn to Linux Academy, we are pleased to announce our newest frontier: Podcasting. Cloud Cadet will offer listeners how-tos, interviews with our instructors, and information and education on Linux, the cloud, AWS, and sysadmin and devops topics.
Available for free on YouTube or your podcast player of choice, Cloud Cadet is for more than Linux Academy students — anyone can listen, learn, and enjoy! Curious about our instructors and offerings? Cloud Cadet is a good way to sample our content before heading in for the main course or works as a wonderful supplement to our current offerings.
We’ll be kicking things off in high gear this week with three new episodes! Afterwards, Cloud Cadet will move to a weekly schedule for your listening pleasure.
Look for it coming soon!
You asked for it, and the Linux Academy is delivering!
We are pleased to announce the addition of a mobile app for all of our users. Coming February 2016, iOS users will have access to the Linux Academy mobile app via the App Store, with the Android version coming to Google Play by the end of 1Q 2016. The app will be free for all users, but will require a membership with the Linux Academy to use.
Once logged into the app, students will be linked with their normal account. Your course progress will be linked across any device that you log in from. You will also have the ability to begin new courses straight from the app.
Don’t have the ability to stream videos? Not a problem! Download and save videos directly to your device for offline viewing!
In addition to regular courses, you can access nuggets and quizzes as well. Note: labs are not available on the mobile app.
The mobile app is just another tool that Linux Academy provides for you to have the BEST learning experience on the web for Linux and Cloud training. Enjoy!
