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
"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
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.
Daemon News is a comprehensive
resource for BSD Unix featuring a quarterly print magazine, a
monthly e-zine, a weekly newsletter, a daily news site, and an
on-line store for BSD merchandise. Daemon News is closely tied to
the developer community and regularly publishes BSD CD sets found
in retail stores. Daemon News's coverage has also been expanded to
include Darwin and Mac OS X, the BSD-based OS from Apple.
"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."
