Oracle BrainSurface Virtual Conference

Yesterday I looked at a RAC presentation from Arup Nanda on RAC tuning and he pointed out to some Linux articles of him, which are quite useful for Oracle Linux Admin. If you are a Linux enthusiast and want some more then just Oracle Linux Admin, this might be useful to you as well.

There is a Linux profressinal Administration project the will help you to better manage Linux. LPI Admin goals are:

The GNU/Linux Administration Manuals are designed to accompany practical courses preparing for the LPI examinations. While this material was generally structured to work with a course of 24-32 hours in consecutive 8-hour sessions, it is modularized to also work for shorter or longer sessions, consecutive or otherwise.
The LPIC-1 Manual's material assumes its users will already have:
Extensive experience (several years) using Intel x86 computers, including a strong knowledge of hardware components and their interaction with basic operating system (OS) components.
A general knowledge of computing and networking basics such as binary and hexadecimal maths, common units of measure (bytes, KB vs Kb, Mhz, etc), file-system structures, Ethernet and Internet networking operations and hardware, etc.
More than three cumulative months of practical experience using a GNU/Linux, BSD or Unix OS, logged in and working at the command-line (in a text terminal or console) either locally or remotely.
Those with less experience, however, should not be discouraged from using this manual, if (and only if) they are willing to spend extra time catching up on the prerequisite background skills and knowledge; a challenging task, but not an impossible one. Further references and examples are provided for the various uses of commands, as well as exercises and accompanying answers demonstrating exam-like problem-solving. All are optional with those most recommended either discussed or referenced in the manual's body. Naturally, LPIC-2 builds upon the knowledge gained from successful completion of LPIC-1.

Project Goals
The GNU/Linux Administration Manuals primary aim is to provide explanations, examples and exercises for those preparing for the Linux Professional Institute (LPI) Certification. Three core sources of criteria guide the project to its primary goals:
LPI's Exam "Objectives".
LPI-Approved Training Materials (LATM) criteria.
The Linux Documentation Project (LDP or TLDP) Author Guide (AG).
Immediate goals for 2010-2011:
Update GNU Free Documentation License to GFDL v1.3.
Move source materials to Texinfo format.
Work with LinuxIT and LPI to identify current requirements of LPIC-1 and LPIC-2.
Perform gap analysis on 2005 release of GNU/Linux LPI-2 and LPI-2 Administration Manuals.
Start development of LPIC-3 materials.
Release updated GNU/Linux LPI-2 and LPI-2 Administration Manuals and a new LPIC-3 Administration Manual.
