Fedora Classroom – Go Learn something!

Filed under: General Linux — TheLinuxBlog.com at 11:46 am on Tuesday, July 21, 2009

Want to learn about Linux for free? Well, Fedora has a thing called the Fedora classroom which holds classes that teach a group about related technologies. As a casual Fedora user, I find the classes useful but I’m a little bummed that I’ve missed a couple of lessons that I’ve wanted to take in the past.

However tonight, at 9:00 EST (1:00 UTC) Kevin Fenzi is going to be hosting a class on PreUpgrade which is a pretty neat project. I might try to jump on if I get the time, if not it will be reading the chat logs and documentation for me.

For more information on any upcoming classes, or archives of old classes visit https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Classroom and be sure to bookmark it for future reference.

I’d love to see video or slides along with the classes. Has anyone taken any of these classes or have any thoughts on them?

Snort IDS Introduction

Filed under: General Linux,The Linux Blog News — TheLinuxBlog.com at 4:15 pm on Thursday, June 11, 2009

I haven’t posted here in a while so here is a presentation that I did at a local security meeting about the Snort IDS. Not much on its own but gives an introduction on Snort with a few slides about IDS’s a few on writing Snort Rules. On the demonstration slide is where I did a demonstration that didn’t exactly go as planned. I swear it worked at home using Nikto, but its all good since I had a friendly crowd. The additional resources slide shows some great resources for learning about the Snort IDS. So hit my document on scribd!
