Linux in the Real World is a virtual Linux internship, right inside your browser! This course goes beyond the hypotheticals to give viewers a “virtual internship” experience. Shawn took his cues from you, and is designing this course based on your feedback. Video No. 2 was created first and made available free to all viewers, who then sent in feedback on what topics they wanted covered. Shawn finished the course based on feedback he received.

Subscribers were able to watch the individual videos as they were released, and to give feedback in a survey. [NOTE: All surveys connected with this course are closed now that the course is complete.]

The course is intended for all levels of Linux proficiency, so whether you’re new to Linux or a seasoned pro, your training needs will be met. Go beyond classroom theory and learn Linux as it is used in the real world. If you've just finished a certification exam, and say to yourself, "now what?", this course is your answer.
