    Hello Luis,

    I have the VM ready and also have WSL.

    Is this a self taken training or instructor led by you and Tim?

    Just asking to save the time in my calendar.


  • Hi @JosePla ,

    It's a self-paced course. Also there is one hour (Zoom web conference) per specific course, as follows:

    Course Instructor Schedule
    Linux Basics (LFS201) Luis Vivero Monday 10 AM-11 AM Central
    Linux Networking and Administration (LFS211) Luis Vivero Tuesday 10 AM-11 AM Central
    DevOps Fundamentals (LFS261) Luis Vivero Wednesday 10 AM-11 AM Central
    Container Fundamentals (LFS253) Luis Vivero Thursday 10 AM-11 AM Central
    K8s Fundamentals (LFS258) Tim Serewicz Friday 10 AM-11 AM Central

    In the web conferences Tim and I will be answering basic questions about the courses, the material and labs (the exercises are pretty important to do!). I think we can schedule some specific stuff to review, with some anticipation (as many of the labs may require a specific environment or configurations).

    I'm open to suggestions and I'll do my best.

    Hi everyone, I am Giuliano, I am Italian and I work as a cloud engineer in Austria (and I speak Spanish, too). I am excited to be part of this bootcamp and I hope to have fun learning new things together. Thanks Luis for your helpful answers and for your availabilty.


  • Hi Giuliano, welcome!

    Oh, it's pretty interesting that a relevant part of the members speaks spanish! I was contacted by a participant of the bootcamp on Linkedin, and he speaks spanish as well.


  • Hi everyone, joined the bootcamp although I will just be able to start it in July!

  • Hi Henrique, until July then!

    Hi Everybody, I have just joined the bootcamp and I'm so excited to take courses. For the zoom meetings are they mandatory ? What if we miss a meeting ?

  • Hi @MIGORMAN ,

    The idea of having zoom meetings is to help the students to solve questions, issues with the labs and stuff like that. So if you can't join for any reason, I don't think you are gonna be into trouble.

    Hi there, new to this Linux Foundation Space. I already learned a bunch as I am going through just the file structure basics. I am hoping I can cement in these certs. And bring some additional knowledge to my job as we undergo this Cloud Transformation.

  • Hi @DRpandaMD , that sounds pretty good! Enjoy the boocamp :)

    Many regards and welcome.

    Hello Everyone,
    Happy to join, with all of you, in this inaugural boot camp cohort. Looking forward to learning foundational Linux and then advancing to DevOps, containers, and orchestration topics following that. Thanks once again to @luisviveropena Luis and all of you for a very important and purposeful discussion during this morning's first Zoom meeting.
