In the past I've run hands-on training sessions for LUV which have worked out
I think it's time to do that again over video chat. The format is that
everyone gets root access to a VM, documentation on what needs to be done, and
video chat to discuss problems with it (and the text part of the Jitsi for
pasting error messages etc).
Here are some of the past topics of hands-on training that I've run:
Debian SE Linux (installation and configuration).
Setting up BTRFS and ZFS with recovery from corrupted block devices and
testing out the basic filesystem features.
Setting up DNS and a mail server with Postfix and BIND. This time will
include IPv6 as I don't have IPv4 public addresses. Includes extension
sections on SPF, DKIM, and DMARC.
Other training that I could run:
Setting up LAMP stack with Wordpress as an example. Covering basics of
Wordpress setup as well as some of the less obvious LAMP options. This will
be with IPv6 or non-standard ports due to lack of IPv4 addresses.
Setting up network monitoring with etbemon and the Prosody Jabber server.
Who is interested in such training? Previous training has been run on
Saturdays in the middle of the day, but we could do it at a different time if
Also I can provide free VMs for anyone else who wants to run such training on
free software. You provide the master VM image, a script to make dozens of
copies with different IP addresses etc, lecture notes, and be ready to talk
people through problems and I'll provide the VM hosting, video conferencing,
and tech support for problems with VMs or video conferencing. Let me know if
there's something you want to teach.
