Linux enthusiasts, I hope you've been paying attention -- there will be a test (if you're interested).
As you may know, developerWorks offers articles and tutorials to help you learn Linux fundamentals and prepare for the Linux Professional Institute Certification (LPIC) exams. What you may not know is just how extensive our library is. Indeed, the developerWorks Linux team has been quietly-but-steadily building this library for years, which means it is now one of the most comprehensive exam preparation resources of its kind. New to Linux? Get familiar with the basics as you prepare for the LPIC-1 exam, then move on to more advanced topics covered in the LPIC-2 exam. More seasoned Linux users can benefit from our LPIC-3 test prep materials, which include our current Learn Linux, 302 series on supporting Linux in a mixed UNIX/Microsoft environment. (This week's installment shows you how to connect Windows clients to a Samba server.) With comprehensive resources like these available at no charge, what have you got to lose?
The high-school-age version of me would advise you to prepare carefully for an exam like this ... although he would also wonder why anyone would choose to take a test. Welcome to adulthood.
Until next week,
John Swanson and the developerWorks editorial team
