April 27, 2020 - April 30, 2021

Solaris Essentials – 3 days Online Live!           Cost: $1,200

For those new to Solaris, this is the first course you will take.

The course starts at the beginner level and works into intermediate and advanced Solaris commands and utilities. The student is introduced to the Solaris bash shell, the command line and command syntax. Although you will be exposed to the various windowing platforms available in Solaris, this course teaches UNIX at “the command line level” to develop a thorough understanding of the Solaris operating environment.

The student learns how to navigate the Solaris file systems and how to work with files, directories and permissions. The student will learn how to use the Solaris editors “ex” and “vi. “ Once the student is comfortable with basic Solaris commands, they’ll move onto advanced power tools as well as how to customize the bash shell.

The classroom labs are run in a real-world Solaris environment where students have access to Solaris SPARC servers.  Lab exercises are structured to allow you to learn by doing and are developed to simulate “real world” situations. The hands-on labs progressively build your Solaris knowledge and command skills in a clear and concise manner.

Working in a controlled UNIX classroom environment with an expert instructor, you will learn Solaris concepts and commands from both the desktop GUI environment and the command line. You will receive professional tips and techniques that will help you build your Solaris confidence and skills.

This course is open to the public and will be held online Live with Bill Calkins as the instructor.
