Coming up soon I will be giving my second Pluralsight Author Talk. This live session will be an Intro to Python. I will cover the fundamentals of the Python language and its syntax. In addition, I will give an overview of the Python ecosystem and its libraries. I also plan to touch on how it is used in automation, DevOps, data science, machine learning, web development, app development, administration, and more.
I am excited to announce that I published a Python course on Pluralsight! This course is titled “Python for Linux System Administration“. This is my 17th course with Pluralsight overall and 6th for 2022. It will teach you how to utilize Python to administer Linux servers. This course is suitable for system administrators, DevOps engineers, and anyone working with servers running on cloud.
In this course, Python for Linux System Administration, you’ll learn the core of the Python language, various Python admin modules, & how to combine python scripts with other Linux tools for administration.
Here are some of the major topics that are covered in this course:
