My name is Chris.

Ive worked as a Data Center tech working on Servers, IP appliances, and networking.  Ive always wanted to learn Linux.  Over the years ive started several times but found it "too hard".   

Covid hit last year and I was furloughed for 5 months beginning in mid March.  After about a month of playing videos games and tryng to figure out what I wanted to do until I was called back to work I decided to actually spend money on the best training I could find for Linux (at the price I could afford) and hit that as if it were my job.   I bought the official COMPTIA Linux+ study materials and went to work.   With my effort, quite a few Centos VMs , and the very good COMPTIA Linux+ material I was able to learn the material and pass the Linux+ cert.

Applied to dozens of admin positions and no responses...

In the mean time, ive been studying other material from other vendors and found it to be lacking.  Ive been eye balling the Red Hat courses for months but with a wife and child, I cant afford the price of the sub now, so my wife suggested I write RH Support and inquite about a Veterans discount.   She said "you never know..."

To my surpise RH Support pointed me to a US Veterans organization they (RH/IBM) support.  I signed up and was given access to the IBM SkillsBuild Platform (Which is Amazing, BTW) and through that, I am able to take RH 124 and RH134.

Thank you IBM and Red Hat.  I appreciate this opportunity you have provided me through your support for the Veteran community.

Hi, My name is Steinn; I'm a CCIE "network specialist," whatever that means,
More and more network gear is *nix based, so I figured why not learn some solid basics.

Hoping to take the EX200 in the next 60 days.
To be able to flex on other networking people with my VIM skills.

Hey,

my name is Alexander and I am a senior consultant and (sadly in-active) Red Hat Certified Instructor based in Germany.

I started as a Linux, BSD and Windows administrator, moved to JBoss EAP Administration (giving training, workshops and consulting) and then moved again over to Kubernetes and Openshift Administration.

At the moment I am on my way to the Red Hat Certified Architect and just did the ex180, ex280 and ex288 in the last couple of days.

EX425 (retiring OCP security) is the next one before I give the RHCE exam a new try, as I failed ~2 years ago and had not time to retry in the meantime.

 

best regards,
Alexander

Wow that sounds like a lot of experience. I completed the Redhat administration course for my associate degree and now I would like to take the exam. Any recommendations on which exam to take first and how to prepare would be most welcome.

Thanks in advance

I'm from Brazil. My first language is Japanese, and I also speak Brazilian Portuguese.

In the past, I learned a bit about Linux, Python and OpenStack by joining the OpenStack Cinder community. This experience is being very useful for my current job as a sysadmin in RH Training.

My next steps are learning about Ceph and OpenShift.

I also invented a patent (US9576501B2) which helps visually impaired people to code in Python or locate themselves when reading a long text.

Hello,

I am a current student of Fayetteville Technical Community College.  As someone who always had an interest with computers, I figured I should pursue a degree in technology.  This is my first time dealing with Red Hat but my second class using Linux. Lets hope I retained some of the information to help me get through. Looking forward to learning new things!
