Large online retailer receives a foundation in Linux operating system

A large online retailer took part in a Linux fundamentals training course to develop the skills of graduate software engineers.

Linux is one of the best known and most used open-source software. As an operating system, Linux is software that sits underneath all of the other software on a computer, receiving requests from those programs and relaying these to the computer’s hardware. Linux has become a popular operating system for web servers because of its ability to support high-volume of users and multithreading applications. Linux has backwards compatibility, which means it is updated frequently to protect against security breaches and for functional patches but it won’t change its modes of operation and thus configurations and shell scripts are likely to work unchanged. Furthermore, unlike other operating systems, Linux has no explicit licensing fees, which will save companies money.

The company dictated that they required a 4 day training course to be run virtually over Zoom. JBI Training customised the course to the specifications of their business to run some exercises with real life adaptations. In the brief the company set to JBI, they indicated that the delegates must learn these skills:

  • To have a working understanding of the daily use of Linux, specifically how to use the shell
  • To utilise the shell to manipulate and edit files, control processes and handle data  
  • To use the knowledge learnt in earlier parts of the course to solve tailor made problems faced by the business

The course ran for 5 delegates and received very complimentary feedback, specifically regarding the trainer:

“I enjoyed this course - I liked that the instructor was receptive to new things and constantly worked to adjust the course to our needs - e.g. adding new material on Z Shell” EL, Graduate Software Engineer

“The instructor presented excellently making it very easy for me to follow along. They always had ways of explaining and demonstrating if I came into issues.” AP, Infrastructure Engineer
