Default Linux Developer Specialist

I got accepted to the program Linux Developer Specialist. I don't have a computer programming background, I just chose this as I know it will be easy to get a job when finished.

What am I to expect from this program course and what kind of jobs will I be doing?

  • Linux basics
  • BSD and Solaris Course
  • Programming and Scripts basic
  • Data communications in Linux System
  • Linux continuation course
  • Programming and Scripts continuation
  • Clustering
  • Security in Linux System
  • Virtualization
  • Systems integration and directory services

As I can see there is a lot of positions for the job. I think you made the right choice and if you dont have any experience with linux its time to start now.

Linux Developer Jobs from Technojobs.co.uk - UK and Overseas Vacancies

I'm by no means specialist neither developer, I know enough to keep me rolling, and if I get stuck there's google there to help out, and educated people as you will be some day

What you're doing sounds great.
What's the most interesting thing you learned about so far?

How involved is the programming? Did you learn C? If so, did they tell you about the best tool ever created - valgrind?

Linux is interesting, as it's very terminal based, meaning you can control everything you want to do as long as you have the knowledge.
The most interesting so far, well, nothing On the other hand, the interesting part will begin once I start working with it, as now we are just scratching on the surface and not really getting the big picture of it.
Besides I'm already looking for companies to practise at while studying to seize the day.

I just finished Bash scripting, that's the most of programming we will touch for now. Then we have another sequel course, and probably we will learn Perl, Ruby and Python. C is more Windows based, there will be a bigger chance we will instead learn Java.

No, it's not. In fact, unlike with Java, there are *nix-specific functions such as POSIX threads and Berkley sockets. Although thinking about it now, that's probably far too involved for you (concurrent programming + networking).
