Atlanix.org - Teaching Linux


Hello everyone. My name is Mark Pipkin. When I started using Linux I was extremely excited. Now after well over a year I'm still excited about Linux.

I know that I'm new blood to the Linux community. I have also never joined a LUG. I have read some things about the local LUGs in Atlanta and it appears that they are dwindling. I really do not think that this is a great thing. It appears to me that people have turned these into social events, which is good, but they don't seem to talk about Linux much any more from what I have been reading.

I also thought that something else is in order to help the n00b to Linux. I have been an IT professional for about 10 years now. I picked up Linux rather easily. Some of the concepts I'm still getting down, like bash scripting. I have how ever found it easier than Microsoft Windows, something that I have been administrating over the past 10 years.

What did I do? or a better question is, what am I doing? Well I decided that I would start a non-profit school. I can't really call it a school, but I'm hoping that it might turn in to something like that one day. I'm going to start teaching classes on Basic Linux computing. From installing Linux to the difference between Gnome and KDE. There are also lots of other things on my mind but I'm really trying not to get a head of myself on this project.

If you would like to visit the site please go to Atlanix.org. A big THANKS goes out to the Linux community for helping me though my 1.5 years of living Microsoft free at home. This community is truly a great group of people.

welcome to LQ...

The site has some nice graphics, but does not seem to have much else---good luck with it. Remember, 2008 is definitely, absolutely, for sure, the year in which Linux takes hold on the Desktop. (Unless, of course, it's actually next year.....) When the revolution comes, there'll be lots of demand for Linux help, training, etc.

Yes the site is not complete yet. I wanted to get it released so I could kinda scale the interest in it. The only 3 pages that work right now are Home, about us, and contact. I'm sorry that there is not more on the site right now but I will be working on that in the next few weeks.
