Black Friday/Cyber Monday Sale

The Linux Academy Black Friday/Cyber Monday Sale

This year has been a crazy ride for us at Linux Academy, and a quick glance back through our blog will tell you a lot about why. As we close in on the end of it, we reach one of the biggest events for technology addicts each year – Black Friday. At the end of this week, retailers everywhere are lowering prices on phones, tablets, and computers of all types. And if you’ve got a technology addiction like most of us do at Linux Academy, it’s your best chance to grab that new toy you’ve had your eye on.

Getting that brand new computer on Black Friday is always exciting, but chances are you want to use it to do something. Linux Academy is offering our biggest sale of the year this weekend, so you can start your cloud computing journey Рor continue it Рfor just $150 for a one-year subscription.

The Linux Academy Black Friday/Cyber Monday Sale

We’ve all gone to work and thought about how we’re going to get that next big raise or promotion. Some of us have even thought about how to get into a totally new career. We believe in high quality, affordable, hands-on training that makes your learning goals possible.

Since we introduced single sign-on, a one year subscription will get you access to both Linux Academy and Cloud Assessments. That’s two great learning platforms for the price of one, offering thousands of hours of training content on:

  • AWS
  • Microsoft Azure
  • Google Cloud Platform
  • Linux Administration
  • Containers (and not just Docker!)
  • A huge variety of DevOps tools and platforms

And that’s just to name a few.

What’s Included in a Subscription?

We believe that when you apply your skills in the real world, you should be able to think back to a time you used a given technology, not just a time you heard somebody talk about it. That’s why our training focuses on hands-on, real world scenarios. We provision live environments so you can use the tools you’re learning about. People learn best by doing, and that’s why we spin up real servers to test your skills.

We also have an active community with thousands of members and a full-time staff of experts to answer questions. Learning cloud computing isn’t always easy, and you’re probably going to get stuck once or twice – we want to make getting help as easy as possible.

The Linux Academy Black Friday sale is one of our biggest discounts ever, but it’s also one of our shortest. The sale begins this Friday, November 24th, and ends Monday, November 27th. The $150 yearlong subscription is for a limited time, and after Cyber Monday, prices will return to normal.

If you’ve ever thought about advancing in your current IT role, starting a new career in tech, or even just building some new skills, we’ve got the training to help you deploy your potential. On Thursday this week, we’ll be sitting around our Thanksgiving tables thinking of how thankful we are for our students. And this time next year, we hope you’ll be sitting around yours, thinking about how thankful you are for your latest promotion or raise.

Join Us for Our AWS Security Webinar

Information security is more important now than ever. In the news, we see one breach after another, and the impact is huge – not just for businesses, but for consumers as well. Running a large organization means keeping tons of data, and a lot of it is going to be sensitive. Think about what would happen if that data were to fall into the wrong hands, then think about what your company is doing to keep that from happening. We’ve all got questions about security, especially on cloud platforms like AWS. This Friday, November 17, 2017, we’ll be hosting a webinar to answer some of these questions about AWS Security, and how to protect your data.

The webinar will be hosted by AWS Certified Professionals Anthony James and Christophe Limpalair. They’ll be discussing the keys to keeping your infrastructure secure, and how to avoid the mistakes that often lead to the big breaches we see so often in the news. A few of the topics will include:

  • IAM security best practices – how to control access to your resources
  • Data protection – how to protect data lakes using S3 and encryption both at-rest and in-transit
  • Detective control and incident response – how to automate detection and prevention, as well as contain incidents
  • Infrastructure security – which services and features can work to increase security across your infrastructure

Data breaches are increasingly common, and the results are increasingly harmful. Security isn’t a matter of changing a few settings in your configuration, of course. It’s an ongoing process that needs to be constantly reviewed and evaluated. But with our upcoming webinar, we hope to provide a few starting points for those new to AWS security, and tips on how to get better for those with experience.
