Announces Linux Device Drivers and Kernel Technical Workshop Series

August 9, 1999 --------San Jose, California ---- UniForum Technology Training Institute, one of the foremost providers of Linux training, announced today their intent to provide the next level of Linux Training: The Linux Intensive Training Series Workshop. As one of the first organizations to provide all distributions of Linux training, UniForum began its Linux training program in the Fall '98.

The Linux Intensive Training Series Workshop scheduled to begin November 15-19, 1999 in San Jose, CA, consists of the following hands-on courses: Linux Boot Camp (1-day), Linux System Administration (2-days), and an Introduction to Linux Device Drivers and the Linux Kernel (2-days).

In five days, attendees will gain a comprehensive understanding of Linux essentials (file systems and commands); the "how-to" knowledge required to administer and troubleshoot Linux; the ability to design, build, and debug a Linux Device Driver; and an understanding of the Linux Kernel.
