Local Linux Groups?

Hello everyone. I am, relatively speaking, new to the OS. I have some previous use of Fedora Core 5 in my early teens. I've come back to it and I'm looking to start an IT career, with an interest in cybersecurity and Linux administration. I am curious to know if there is such thing as groups that help people learn and get started in the field. I'm based in Schuylkill county, Pennsylvania, in the US. I am currently running Fedora 22 in VirtualBox, using OS X as a host on a MacBook Pro.

Hi & Welcome to Linux Questions!

There is a LUG in PA. I think it's in Harrisburg.

You can learn from Linux Groups but if you want a career in Linux and Security you will most likely need your Computer Engineering License and other skills like computer science.

Another way to get started is to get to know your Fedora distribution very well and learn how to run it efficiently.
I suggest running CentOS which is the free versio of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.-

This book has saved me from a lot of headaches:-

Good Luck-
