Intro

00:00:00

Hello everybody and welcome to the CentOS System Administrator Prep course. Now I'm going to describe a little bit more about what I mean by a Prep course, once we get this course started. But I just want to take a couple minutes here to welcome you. To tell you how excited I am about the series that you're about to start with me.

00:00:21

We're going to learn about CentOS which is a very popular Linux distribution. And it's used in server rooms all over the planet, and by the end of this course, you're going to feel comfortable using this. Even if you're a Debian person, or an Ubuntu person, or hopefully, even if you're a Windows person just coming to Linux for the first time, I think that this course is going to be really helpful to get people started in an RPM-based distribution like CentOS.

00:00:51

Now this is a picture of me. I'm the one on the left. The one on the right, his name is Smokey. I'm terrified of horses, so I just like to pretend that Smokey is not there. But a lot of people like horses, so I thought that it would be good to put a picture of a horse instead of just me.

00:01:07

I hope that you are as excited about the CentOS System Administrator Prep course as I am. It's going to be a ton of fun. I hope that you are ready to learn a lot, but I also hope you're ready to have fun. So spin up your virtual hosting platform and get ready for some hard core mirrored action.
