UPDATE MAY 2018: Thanks to everybody for joining us in the celebration – we hope ya’ll received your swag packs! Congrats to all of you for winning. We’re going to be launching 150+ Courses and Hands-On Labs in July so stay tuned for another month of celebrations, giveaways, and more!

We’ve been receiving many course requests from our students, and we’ve been working hard to answer all of them. While we can’t get to all of them just yet, we’ll start by launching over 70 new Courses and Hands-On Labs for you! *happy dance*

Several times in April, we’ll also be live streaming on YouTube about the latest Course launches and Hands-On Labs. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn to interact and engage with our team. Who knows, Course Authors, celebrities, or even I may be making an appearance!

We’ll be launching:
  • 20 new courses (some refreshes)
  • Hands-On Labs

I’m also very pleased to inform you that the new labs that we’ll be launching this April will be utilizing our new REAL-time grader platform! We’re taking learn-by-doing to a whole new level so if you’ve been enjoying our current Hands-On Labs, this is something you’ll want to really get your hands on! (you see what I did there?)

As you’re going through these new labs, you’ll be able to see your progress in real time, get graded as you go, and receive tailored instructions or hints for how to go about completing the lab.

Additionally, our new quizzes and practice exams (launched after April 1st) will also be utilizing our brand new (literally completed today) Practice Exams system – V1.0!

Our team has been working hard to create these new courses and features, so we can’t wait for all of you to start digging in. We’re so excited to bring you along with us on this journey in April and equipping you with the latest and greatest. YOU are our inspiration, and our team can’t thank you enough for all of your recommendations, suggestions, and feedback. Thank you for being a part of the family, and we can’t wait to continue this journey with you. Be on the lookout – we’ve got a lot in store for 2018!

Are you most excited for new Courses or Hands-On Labs?

Don’t forget to follow us on social media and check back here for the latest course updates. We’ll see you around soon!



In addition to our current features including 6 Cloud Servers for you to spin up and Hands-On Labs for you to gain real-world skills through taking actions in live environments, we’ve got some great Linux Academy content and features (like the new Practice Exams system) coming for you in 2018 that we can’t wait to share with you. Thank you for using Linux Academy and thank you so much for your amazing feedback so far – please keep them coming!

It’s a great time to get started on your training! If you’re not already training with us, we’ve got a 7-days free trial that gets you access to all of our platforms — Linux Academy. We hope to see you on the other side!

    Than New Courses, I suggest to refresh the courses regularly to catch with new features/versions.

  32. Yves says:

    Sorry, I came here to see what new content you have, besides looking at the most strangest cubicles I have ever seen I can’t find anything?

    Just tell us what you have, why is this so difficult? We’re not 12 year olds you know.

  33. RP says:

    for a paid customer, i am finding it quite frustrating getting a teaser of 70courses every other day and not having any visibility of the content. why can’t we just announce it to the paid customers at-least if not public as i can understand you want to drum up new interest/signups.

  34. Sultan says:

    Postgresql 10 please ☺

    • Winnie says:

      We can’t tell you more except this, but thank you for your request in the meantime and we hope you’ll tune in LIVE this month to catch the latest content with us!

  35. Amit says:

    It looks like Azure 70-533 training is older now. MS has launched new 2nd edition book along with revise course. Yours is still Nov, 2016.

  36. James Taylor says:

    How about some courses on mobile app development?

    • Winnie says:

      Great suggestions – we’re always listening! While we can’t promise everything, we hope you’ll tune in live with Anthony James to celebrate new content and engage with us throughout this month!

  37. Ali Fener says:

  38. Walid says:


    I’m looking for Pivotal Cloud Foundry (Developer) courses 🙂


  39. Maria Iano says:

    I really hope you are adding mojolicious courses!

  40. Leandro Lemos says:

    It could be really good to improve the excersises and hand-on labs, what I mean with this? The following, for example, when you are taking an on-site course for a certification of Red Hat, you have the possibility to “grade” the lab, so you, for example, run a script with the parameter grade, and this is going to check every step you did in the lab, and in that way you are going to have a feedback on what you did wrong or not, allowing in that way to improve.

    • Winnie says:

      We completely agree – Stay tuned throughout this month to hear more from us about how we’ve improved some of our features for you, we’re going LIVE soon!

  41. David D. says:

    I noticed that there is a course for “RHCE OpenStack”, but not one for RHCSA. Any chance that y’all are planning on releasing a study course for Red Hat EX210?

  42. The amount of material available on your website is pretty impressive. On the top of that the speed of adding new stuff is astonishing 🙂
    Definable a good place for anyone want to get their hands dirty with the new technology. Good Job!

    • Winnie says:

      Thanks for the kudos, Salman! We hope you enjoy the new content that we’re releasing.. stay tuned though, because we’ve got more coming your way! We hope you’ll continue to celebrate this amazing month with us!
