Get the Right Linux Training in 2019


The Linux Foundation has learning and certification options for you in 2019.As part of its ongoing quest to promote all things Linux, The Linux Foundation is ringing in the new year with a roundup of self-proclaimed "can't-miss" tools to help tech professionals either enlarge their understanding of Linux, or jump into the ocean and begin to swim. There will be numerous opportunities, for example, for Linux-minded professionals to attend conferences and conventions in the coming year, an environment in which opportunities to learn and grow frequently abound. Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) are another avenue down which Linux learners can travel to gain new skills or flesh out an existing knowledge base. In a nutshell, there's a lot of opportunity out there to charge up your Linux learning and professional development. For those who aren't certain in which direction to leap, the Linux Foundation's roundup is a great place to start.


Certification Magazine Looks Back at 2018


Yeah, we know, it's the time of year to be thinking about what lies ahead — about where we're all going, not where we've just come from. On the other hand, just as an ICYMI (as the kids like to call it), there's a fun two-part recap of the Year That Was over at, the official website of Certification Magazine. (Why do we always say it that way? Are there any unofficial websites of Certification Magazine out there? It seems unlikely.) There are roughly 200 new articles posted to each year, and that's a lot to keep up with. What if, on the other hand, you could have a pithy reading list curated by the untold hundreds of thousands of certified professionals to pass through the site each year? It's a place to start, at any rate.
