Anyone ever try, look into, or attend O’Reilly School of Technology? I was exploring the website after someone on this board posted links to the site as part of a +Linux 2009 study guide. After some research I found, that the credits are only counted as continuing education, but you can go at your own pass and get a sandbox of sorts/ virtual lab for any class you are working on. I posted some links below, I ‘m just looking for comments and opinions.
