Introductory Linux courses

UPPMAX application experts want to share their skills in a 8-day series of courses. We will help you move from being a Linux novice to an UPPMAX expert. If you already have the fundamentals down, you are still sure to enjoy the tips and tricks in the later parts of the course.

This course is going to be given regularly, approximately 2 times per year. Below are links to the course webpages, with dates, places, and links to registration and course material.

The next introductory course will be held January 15-18, 2024.

The next Awk workshop will be held January 22-23, 2024.

Please contact Diana Iusan if you have any questions or if you are interested in being contacted when registration opens to the next course instance. Feel free to drop an email if you have suggestions for future courses or workshops.
