[SCALE 11X] Linux Training Class at SCALE

Recommended Posts

Know someone who should – or wants to – learn Linux?


SCALE 11X is bringing back last year's very successful Linux Training

class, an intensive, two-day training class the same weekend as the

expo at the Hilton Los Angeles Airport hotel.


Presented by professional trainers from One Source Course and SCALE

volunteers, students will come away with the ability to install and

maintain a Linux operating system.


Cost of the class is $35, which includes installation media, training

handouts, and a pass to the Linux Expo floor. Expo seminar access is

not included because the training class will occupy all of both

Saturday and Sunday.


Attendees are expected to bring a computer suitable for installing

Linux. Laptops are encouraged but desktops are acceptable.

Installations will be Linux-only; dual-booting is beyond the scope of

this class. So bring a computer you can dedicate to Linux.


NOTE: Do not bring a computer running Windows 8. Microsoft has forced

computer makers to implement Secure Boot, which makes installing an

alternate operating system problematic.


Minimum hardware requirements for Linux installation (and more is

better, of course):


CPU: 2.0 GHz or higher


Disc Space:10 Gigabytes for installation; recommend 20-30 Gigabytes or

more of additional space for data


RAM: 1 Gigabyte or more


Network interface: Wired: mandatory. Wireless: optional


Speakers: optional

In its 11th year, SCALE 11X is the first of the year open-source

software expo in North America. Lodging discounts for attendees –

$112 per night at the Hilton – are available by visiting
