I'm not sure if anyone here actually is interested, but: Linux foundation training 50% off.

    3 weeks ago several of us purchased from their cyber monday sales. Each bundle was $161 with both bundles going for $299. This 50% off deal is slightly better with each bundle coming out to $150. If you add both bundles it still comes out to $300.

    I bought the LFCS course/certification, it came with a free t-shirt. Would love to get the LFCE bundle but I don't have the time come next year. I would highly recommend Linux foundation it as it seems the exam is a hands on style of examination. No multiple choice. $150 is a hell of a deal for the course and certification exam.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks for the link. I've paid for both LFCS and LFCE exams. I like how it also has a retake option included in the price. I already work with Linux at work.

    Yeah but people need to remember you have 1 year from purchase date to take the course and test. The clock is ticking, don't wait till the last minute to complete it.

    LFCS is really good. . Not so easy like many others tell.

    For $150 I think this may be a test worth taking. The continuing education credits amount to 8 each year for a total of 16 to maintain the certification every 2 years. After much consideration, I may invest some time into the LFCE exam and actually do it on Ubuntu instead of CentOS.

    Why Ubuntu and not CentOS?

    All of my work experience has been with RHEL and I want to become familiar with a major Debian distribution. I've been going through the LFCE steps with Ubuntu servers and I'll be honest, its a breath of fresh air; Ubuntu has its own elegance in how package management works and the default documentation that comes with packages offers much more direction than Red Hat.
