George Scott
Most recently a Technical Account Manager for AWS, I've come to LinuxAcademy with almost 20 years of experience in IT, much of it in Academia, Healthcare, and Enterprise Ops. SCUBA is my favorite sport -- I love to travel. Favorite programming language (this year) is Golang.


By the end of this course, you will have built an understanding of how the Linux kernel interoperates with glibc (and the rest of the binary toolchain). This, in turn, will enlighten your understanding of how various software packages rely on the kernel and glibc to provide interfaces and services, as well as the “why” behind many of the features and idiosyncrasies of the Kernel and glibc.
