The Path to Linux Proficiency


Hello World!

I'm totally new to Linux, currently working with servers and routers: Testing, configuring and trouble shooting. I don't have any of the network certifications but i'm currently working on the basic one (network+) and i have strong desire to learn...How did I get here? My employer gave me the opportunity to learn and grow in this area of interest. My question is what would be the best path to Linux proficiency relevent to network and a posibly a certification? Thank you.JJ

Hello and welcome to the forums!

Honestly, the best way, IMHO, would be to read, read, and read more. There are many different types of certifications, so you need to ask yourself what you really want to get, and what you want in the long run. Sure, I could say to go for RHCE, etc, but it's what you want. What are you thriving for?

Cheers,

Josh

Awesome, in that case, go for your RHCE. You may also want to check out other certifications to expand your horizons.

Cheers, and I hope all the best for you,

Josh

Thanks-it looks like I need to start working on RH033, RH131, RH133 and RH253-does this sounds like a logical path to RHCE? Also, formal education (school) vs self study for thse modules , what works best...ok ok..I know this mostly depends on the learning ability of individualson but on your HO what work best?

For me, I am completely self taught, never went to school for anything, including programming, and electronics. I can't honestly vouch for you, so I don't know what to say about your own personal preference.
