This is the first course in the series of many courses which I will be doing on Linux Operating system. There are many OS available but we will see that why we choose Linux.

Linux uses the GNU General Public License (GPL) which is free. It is free as well as open source, meaning that it gives the freedoms to use, study, share (copy), and modify the software. Linux follows POSIX standards specified by the IEEE for maintaining compatibility between operating systems such as Unix and other variants.
We will dive deep in Linux in the other detailed courses like:
1. Shell script - Here, we will learn about shells like sh, bash etc, editors like vi, emacs etc shell commands etc.
2. Understanding Linux Kernel and writing device drivers.
3. Real Time Operating Systems (RTOS)
4. Debugging in Linux - How to debug applications written in Linux using gdb and analyzing core dump.
5. Embedded system - All about embedded systems
6. Programming - Programming languages like C and C++ with data structures.
7. Compilers - gcc and g++ in details
About this course:
We will try and learn installing Fedora and ubuntu. But how do you actually get it installed? Here, we'll show you how to install it on your system.
This course is designed for the IT professional who wants to quickly get their first Linux machine up and running. It is 38mins of console screen capture with highlights and voiceover explanation.
The course assumes some knowledge of computer hardware and operating systems such as files, directories, and disk partitions. If you've been curious about Linux but have been frustrated by the "read the docs and learn" mentality, this course will walk you through installation.
What are the requiremen?
1. A spare working computer or virtualization software like VMware Fusion or Virtual Box
2. Fedora and ubuntu distro DVD
What am I going to get from this course?
This is the course which provides the foundation in Linux. The end product will be a Fedora and ubuntu Linux installation suitable for home or small office server.
What is the target audience?
IT professionals with little or no Linux experience
Windows administrators who have been tasked with configuring their first Linux server
Computer and IT hobbyists

I was apparently not a diligent student. I worked with C/C++ and HTML, CSS, JavaScript since 12 years. I speak to the world on software freedom. From the beginning of my career I have always worked in large and small teams. While programming has been more of a individual activity, it is the collaboration in teams that can make and break a project. I have been interested in algorithms and data structures and its implementations especially in Java since university.

I am a co-author of various manuals, and has edited and reviewed more than a dozen other books. I wrote columns that provided keen insights into the little algorithmic nuggets that we use in our programs. My favorite books includes "Writing Efficient Programs", "More Programming Pearls" and "Programming Pearls". The best programmers not only continuously improved the quality of their work, they also influence other members of their team.

I learned about project management and team interaction working at various organisations. I still believe that humans are still at the beginning of the code revolution. Programmers and users are still imitating what came before, and haven’t even imagined all that could be in the future. One thing I am sure of is that code is a type of language, based on the same logic as Sanskrit, and for the first time in history, language can change the physical world. Programming is a literature.

I've always had a passion for teaching in seminars and corporations during my consulting projects. My online school eLearningMedium gives me the opportunity to share my knowledge with students of all backgrounds and experiences across the globe! I'm really excited for this opportunity to bring to you real-world practical experience!

I've plans of making some of the courses about Algorithms and Data Structures, Java, HTML5, Software Engineering and Software Project Management. I give all my heart into creation of courses. I always try to explain everything the easiest possible way. I'm sure that my courses will help you in the adventure.
