About the instructor

This course is taught by me, Miguel Ángel Cabrerizo - the owner of the N40Lab Blog at Wordpress.com

I'm a System and Security Administrator & Open-Source  enthusiast living in Spain. I'm interested in Cloud  solutions like OpenNebula, Openvswitch,  Honeypots, IDS and networks. I've been using Linux since 1998  and CentOS since 2006. 

 I'd like to thank my wife Isabel and my friend Jose David for testing this course and helping me to fix some  issues.

Assessment criteria

You'll have to complete a final quiz for receiving the certificate of completion. 

Course requirements

If you don't know what CentOS is or how to install it, I suggest you to enroll this course first.

Obviously if you want to fully understand this course you'll need a CentOS 6 virtual or physical machine.

Course level
