The intent of this course is to take you on a journey from little or no knowledge of IT topics to the knowledge needed to demonstrate Linux and cloud environment proficiencies. The course begins with a foundational understanding of computer hardware, software, and operating systems, and walks you through concepts related to system administration, networking, troubleshooting, the Internet, cloud, security, DevOps, project management, and open source software and licensing. The course is a good preparation for the Linux Foundation Certified IT Associate (LFCA) exam.
