Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 Essentials Webinar

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 Essentials Webinar

Event Date(s): Oct 27, 2016

Some things have changed in Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® 7 in the areas of directories, file system structure, and systemd as it relates to service control.

Did you know that /usr was so named for being the Unix System Resources directory? Learn how this, and the other top-level directories, are used by Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® 7. Additionally, we’ll be taking a look at systemd, which will be especially helpful if you’ve not yet started with systemd. We’ll cover design and some everyday commands and tasks.

Join this webinar in which we’ll cover these topics:

  • Identifying top-level directories and usage
  • Reviewing changes to the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 file system structure
  • The architecture and moving pieces of systemd as it relates to service control
  • Some handy systemctl commands

Where: VinSolutions, 5700 Broadmoor Street, Mission, KS (map)
9th Floor, park in front or on top (uncovered) deck of covered parking garage. 

  • Building your First IoT Project 

    So you’ve written hello world (blinked an LED) a hundred times with your Raspberry Pi or other IoT device, you’ve read books and endless blog posts, been super excited about projects you’ve seen on Instructables or, but still don’t have the confidence to jump in and make your first REAL IoT project.  We’ll go over some ideas for good starter projects, and build one from start to finish!

    Speaker: Adam Barney (@cabarney)

    Adam is a nerd. That kept me humble and nearly friendless (*sniff*) through school, but I wear it as a badge of honor now. After buying a Commodore 64 with money from his paper route in the 4th grade, he’s never stopped learning about computers and how to make these stupid machines do cool things. I am a Microsoft C# MVP and ASP Insider, running my independent consulting company from my home in Lincoln, NE. In my spare time, I run a user group and a couple developer conferences, and generally take on way more work than I have time for. I can also be found speaking at many mid-west user groups, code camps and developer conferences.
