Hey Arjun99 and Welcome to LQ.

I would never qualify myself as a "linux master" (... or master of anything, for that matter .. but I digress ...). That said, this is a great place to come for help - there are a lot of knowledgeable people here.

It would help everyone to know at what stage you are after 3 years. There is a lot to learn even for people that have been at it for far longer, but knowing more about your current level of expertise would be useful.

Also, give us an idea which areas you would like to focus on.

Cheers,

look for free on line schooling,

help out in here and beat your brains out trying to figure out other peoples problems with Linux.

just start out with what you really know then work your way into i picking up what people do to fix things by reading the post. then taking on some of the things by testing the fixes on your own system in a control environment you've set up

their are various ways to do that depending on what it is you're going to put to the test to see if you have even a remotely close answer to fix the issue.

In general, just trying to answer qns here at LQ will teach you a lot, even when you don't come up with the answer.
Also see the solns that are posted.

More specifically, if you want to become a 'master' in some area, YOU have to pick an area - we can't do that for you.
Loosely speaking, you can chose one of: Sysadmin, DBA, Networking, Programming. It actually goes a lot deeper than that, but those are the basic 4 areas.

I too reject the "master" label--at best, I'm an intermediate-level home user--but I have a suggestion.

Pick something you really want to do with a computer (for me, it was self-host my website, something I no longer do but it was great fun and occasional panic while it lasted, but it could be to develop a website on localhost in preparation for publishing it, to create/modify a WordPress or other theme, edit photographs, compose documents, use vim or emacs, or any of many other things) and do it on a Linux computer. If you are pursuing something you really want to do, the pursuit is easier and the learning comes along for the ride.

As you are working as a Linux and VMWare admin, perhaps it might be set up a file server or use VMs to distro hop and test distros you are not familiar with a goal of choosing one to focus on.

Just a few thoughts.

In what -specific- 'technology'/'keyword' areas could you contribute more to your current employer?
(also, what -exactly- are other potential employers that interest you looking for?)
Yes, go ahead and list a few 'best' topics here. (Thank you for replying #6 above)
Do you have a 'test'/home system (with 4G+ ram) which you can study on?
Then, create several VMs to study the 'things' you listed as 'in demand'.

Per #4, pick one older Thread (2nd half of ZRT), where a first-time poster hasn't received a reply for many days, and you have a bit of experience/interest in their question; research it, and post a reply, -after reading- this.
That would demonstrate 'serious diligence' (&contribution)! OK?

Best wishes! Work hard Looking forward to hearing from you. Welcome to LQ.
