    Linux+/LPIC-1 group study session #1/6

    Reading and exercise lists will be posted here, along with source URLs and other references. First links should appear Wednesday, May 17th. This will give attendees 24 days to prep for the first class.

    All six sessions will be held at the Nashville Software School.

    Session dates are the second and fourth Saturday of each month, June through August.

    Session times are listed as running from noon to 2:00pm. Tentative breakdown for session #1 is as follows:

    12:00pm - 12:15pm = Load-in/setup.

    12:15pm - 12:45pm = Opening remarks and presentation. Presentation slides will be available in advance.

    12:45pm - 1:00pm = Q&A, brief break.

    1:00pm - 1:30pm = Group labs and exercises.

    1:30pm - 1:45pm = Closing remarks, assigned reading and self-study exercises for next session (June 24th).

    1:45pm - 2:00pm = Teardown/load-out.

    Note: The Linux+/LPIC-1 certs are based on CentOS 7, which is x86-64 only (ie - it's a 64-bit OS, so it won't run on older 32-bit hardware, but that shouldn't be a problem for any laptop make in the last 10-12 years). You'll want to have CentOS 7 installed and running by June 10th, preferably earlier so you can start playing with it. If you need help installing and configuring it, you're in luck! We have an installfest coming up this Saturday, May 20th, at the East Nashville Beer Works, from 11:00am to 4:00pm (show up at 10:00am if you want to help set up and learn how to run an installfest). More info here:
