Back in the good old days, I used give a 'Introduction to Unix and C
course'... It was two hours a week for a year, we got to do a little admin,
some C programming, a little bit of X windows programming.. I'd hate
to try fit that into 3 days (and expect people to understand anything..)..
Unless you set the course as - for experienced unix users only... otherwise
you'll lose them as soon as you mention hierarchical filesystem (wha? -
but where's me C: drive... there is a hard disk on the machine...)
Then again, if you do set it for experienced users only - no-one will wanna
go on it :(
What you really want to do is have an
' Intro to Unix course' (file systems, man, handy tools - telnet / ftp /
X windows for users )
' Advanced Unix users course ' ( indepth of Unix architecture, processes ,
C programming / kernel interface / shell scripting )
' Basic Administration course ' ( adding users / user+group permissions /
backups / remote admin / security / services )
' Advanced Administration ' ( security, security, security, kernel tuning
adding services - samba/apache, security, syslog )
' Unix Network Administration ' ( ipchains / firewalling / IDS / LAN design
LinuxVirtualServer, Diskless X terminals etc..)
Then - tell people that to go on each course, they should be up to speed on
all the previous ones.. and run the course as if they are...
