Q: Who is this class for?

A: LEARNERS who are one or more of the following (no particular order):

- MID-CAREER IT PROS - update skill set, fill gaps, continuous learning

- TEACHERS OF IT OR ASPIRING - regardless of IT skill level, your interest is in the idea of teaching as a way of learning, networking with the like-minded

- DEVELOPERS - want or need to understand the IT infrastructure part of the equation better for career development

- CURIOUS - would like a gentle hands-on intro to determine if this is a good career path... don't want to rely solely on google or other online tutorials to figure that out

- TEAM MANAGERS - take or send someone to the class - even if not on the keyboard as much, this will be beneficial

[NOTES]: a little experience with linux basics prior to class helps but is not necessary

employers will often pay for this kind of learning if asked
