General purpose systems administrator for 15+ years
I have done most of my studies in e-commerce, but started using Linux a long time ago (Red Hat 5.2 - not RHEL 5.2!). I got Linux training from Savoir-Faire-Linux at age 20, and became RHCE on RHEL6 in 2011. I've been a consultant in the past, but I'm now an employee for a provincial government agency for which I manage the infrastructure (servers, workstations, network, security, virtualization, SAN/NAS, PBX). I'm a big fan of open source software and its underlying philosophy. I have worked with Windows, Debian, Ubuntu, SUSE, but what I know best is RHEL-based distributions. I'm known for my contributions to the MailScanner project book), but also contributed to different open source projects such as Mondo Rescue, OTRS, SpamAssassin, pfSense, and a few others.
I have been a snowboard and a telemark ski instructor for 8 years in the past, and I have always liked teaching.
My mother tongue is French, but I also speak English, and a tiny bit of Spanish.
i had a hard time hearing and following as the accent was heavy and the speed the lecturer was talking was very fast but thank you for the information
The course is free, I thought it would not be so general.
Kindly stay away from this course. It just some general topics that too nothing in depth.
For a sysadmin beginning his first investigations, or having felt like he hasn't had good traction with past investigations, this course offers a structured approach to problem solving, a skeleton on which to build a solid framework.
I appreciated how he gave definitions to terms he used most of the time. Also, he gave examples to support his explanations. Although this course is OS agnostic, some tools should have been mentioned to give the student examples of what is available to perform the analysis he's referring to; paid or OSS. Some words were unclear and I couldn't gather them from the context of which he was speaking. Slowing down the recording distorts, but may be the best way to hear what was missed. All in all, I learned a bit, got a good review of concepts and terminology I may not have used in a while. I will watch again, for sure. The slides should be available for download. I took notes and it would have been nice to assign them to a particular slide.

The subtitles have a number of errors, as I am not a native English speaker the subtitles would help me follow the speaker. Unfortunately the subtitles have really strange errors that distract.
