It is really amazing how fast the initial offer of Linux academy evolved. After learning theoretical and hands on skills here I feel very confident to deal with any security related problem within a cloud based projects regardless whether it is being deployed in AWS, Azure or Google cloud environment. It is now only matter of invested time to learn and pass any certification exam.Thank you guys a lot.

I studying in SCC. Working 3 part time jobs β€” 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.
