Linux Academy has helped my team gain a lot more context into what we’re working on and confidence in what they’re building in AWS. It’s helpful that Linux Academy is more formalized and guided than our current sprint work. It’s clear as to what the team is working towards and being able to use these resources to get there has been instrumental.”

“Linux Academy is currently the only online learning platform I know of that listens to what students want, and then creates quality courses to meet the needs of the students. Any student can suggest a course, and Linux Academy actually listens and delivers. The content on Linux Academy is not just about passing an exam; it really gives you what you need to perform on the job.

Linux Academy has amplified the skill set of the team as a whole. Engineers who are focused on supporting the application side of projects have been able to dive head first into AWS and gain a better understanding of the way infrastructure is built and services are leveraged. This has also helped the cloud team adopt new disciplines as the company progresses in its DevOps journey.”

“I feel that Linux Academy truly cares about me and the tech community as a whole and makes sure we have access to the best education possible. As a business owner and graduate in Computer Networking and Information Technologies (with a minor in Electrical and Computer Engineering Technologies), I can honestly say that all other things considered equal, I would look for candidates with completed courses at Linux Academy over a college degree.

I genuinely believe that the most valuable service i spend my money on each month is Linux Academy. I have used many online learning resources over the years, but none come close to Linux Academy. From the incredible depth all the team put into the courses, to the online forum community, constant courses of new technology (Azure/Chef etc), to the very personal emails you send frequently and best of all the labs! Your lab environment completely revolutionized the way I learn. I just wanted to say a huge thank you for changing the way I learn, and to the benefit my career will receive because of the Team’s work.”
