Bristol Wireless Trains Tech in late November 2013

This November Bristol Wireless is offering a week of training days in its lab at Windmill Hill City Farm, Bedminster, Bristol.

One topic will be covered each day of the week of the 25-29 November and there are four places available for each topic.

The course topic for each day is:

  • Monday 25th November: Hosting web services
  • Tuesday 26th November: Linux Vserver virtualisation environment
  • Wednesday 27th November: SQL database programming
  • Thursday 28th November: System administration
  • Friday 29th November: Administration using Puppet automation software

Tuition will start each day at 10 am and end at 5 pm.

The tutors for the week will be Bristol Wireless’ Ben Green and Julien Weston. Ben has well over 10 years’ experience as a systems administrator, whilst Julien has been an accomplished database engineer for a couple of decades.

Bristol Wireless uses Debian GNU/Linux as its preferred operating system and the courses will be taught on Debian, although participants are welcome to bring their own laptops and preferred operating systems to the courses.

Participants must have some experience of Linux systems, including at least some command line skills and should expect a fast pace of learning. Each participant will be given a virtual server to experiment with on the day with the required tools set up for the topic at hand.

Cost will be £200 per day, which doesn’t include food or accommodation, although the on-site city farm café will be open and there are plenty of other eateries in the area.

For more information please contact Ben Green at Bristol Wireless at or on 0117 325 0067.
