Posted on April 1, 2019 by Anthony James Founder/CEOAnthony James Founder/CEO

We’ve teased you for the past couple of months about new courses releasing this April, and while it is the first of the month, these courses are no joke.

Before we jump into all the new content, a quick reminder of some releases from last month. First, Windows Server for the Linux Academy Playground is waiting for you to jump in and spin up your own Windows Server to learn with. Along with that, our CompTIA Cyber Security Analyst+ Certification prep course was released last week as well. So, while looking through everything new this week, don’t forget to take a look at these awesome additions to Linux Academy.

What’s New

We’ve been teasing you with content releases for this month, and I have three new courses to announce, one of which is a revamp of one I originally wrote for Linux Academy, and I have to say it has turned out amazingly. The course is the AWS Certified Solutions Architect – Professional Levelcreated by our training architect Adrian Contrill. This updated version of the AWS Certifed Solutions Architect – Professional Level course comes with interactive charts, instant hands-on labs, flashcards, lots of deep theory lessons, and a practice exam that he made harder than the actual exam to keep you on your toes and make sure you’re ready. All of this content is wrapped into a course that is over 51 hours long. The best part is that we know it works! Having had students already pass the exam using Adrian’s course.

So what else do we have for you this week?

Coming Up

Here at Linux Academy, we love to hear from you and reward you for your feedback, so we’ve created a new way to do so. We are starting the Tweet of the Week. How does it work? Simple, @linuxacademyCOM over on Twitter and give us some feedback about what you think about the weekly update, course announcement, or anything else to do with Linux Academy content. If we choose your tweet, then your Linux Academy account will be awarded gems that you can use to buy swag if you have a paid account, or purchase hands-on labs if you are using a Community Edition account.
