  26. Ram K says:

    I studying in SCC. Working 3 part time jobs — 1. SSC computer lab, 2. Lyft and 3. Indian restaurant on the weekend. In spite of that all those hardwork, I find in between time to learn and use Linux. so far with the help of Linux Academy, I studied and learned – Linux, Docker, chef, Puppet, Ansible. If go out and learn these course and technologies outside an an institute, i might be broke by now. Linux Academy not only save me money but also give me servers to work, learn and practice. Literally, Anthony and Linux Academy changed my life upside down. I’m so grateful and thankful for Linux Academy. Thanks so much.

  27. Selva says:
