LINUX TRAINING CLASS:
SCALE 11X is reprising last year's verysuccessful Linux Training class. It's an intensive, two-day trainingclass the same weekend as the Linux Expo, co-located with the Expo atthe Hilton Los Angeles Airport hotel. Presented by volunteer trainersand presenters, students will come away with the ability to installand maintain a Linux operating system.
The $35 fee for the class includes installation media, traininghandouts, and a pass to the Linux Expo floor (Expo seminar access isnot included because the training class will occupy all of bothSaturday and Sunday).
Students are expected to bring a computer suitable for installing Linux. Laptops are encouraged but desktops are acceptable.Installations will be Linux-only; dual-booting is beyond the scope ofthis class. So bring a computer you can dedicate to Linux.
