Weekly Update 4/15/2019

Posted on April 10, 2019 by Anthony James Founder/CEOAnthony James Founder/CEO

Welcome back to the weekly update! Before we begin, I’m happy to announce the deal you’ve all been waiting for! It’s our $299 a year promotion which is officially underway! Anyone can take advantage of this pricing, and as long as you continue to renew annually, your Linux Academy subscription will stay $299 a year for the entire time you are a part of Linux Academy. This offer ends May 1st! So don’t wait, and lock in your special price!

Also, for those of you who may have missed it, last week we launched the Google Cloud Certified Professional Cloud Architect and Google Cloud Certified Processional Cloud Developer courses. Not only that, but the Google Sandbox now has Instant labs.


This week is all about AWS and the awesome content that our Training Architects have created for you.

One of the courses we are putting out this week is the AWS Advanced Networking Specialty by Tia Williams. This course is packed with hands-on labs, interactive diagrams, and flashcards; all created with the high quality and care that you’ve come to expect from Linux Academy. Tia has created 6 real-world use cases to help you learn and retain everything you need to know for the exam. Tia is always up for a chat, so feel free to drop her a line over on her Twitter, @TiaWilliams_LA, or her LinkedIn!

AWS Certified DevOps Engineer Professional course has gotten updated as well, with fresh content to match up with the constantly changing world of tech.

Automating AWS with Lambda, Python, and Boto3 by Mark Richmond is another of our courses being released this week. As it is one of our more advanced courses, we do suggest taking the Introduction to Python course beforehand. This course is useful to both newer Python users and those who already use AWS, as it is a great way to brush up on the changes that have happened over the past year.

Next week we will be rolling out even more content, though the focus for April 15th will be over Linux. We are also excited to say that we are looking to implement interactive transcriptions and closed captions to our videos in May! Want to learn more? Make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss an update!

Hey! Can you bring back the $299 special? Current rate is a bit too steep for my wallet…
