FreeBSD Essentials ends; Announcing UNIX-g33ks III
UNIX-g33ks FreeBSD essentials is coming to an end with the last session on FreeBSD system management and maintenance being held on the 5th of December 2010. Totalling 6 sessions starting from the 19th September 2010, this series has already covered enough material to allow participants to deploy and administer their own FreeBSD system to suit their needs.
On behalf of our FreeBSD mentor, Mr Suresh Ramasamy, we would like to thank the g33ks and members of HackerspaceKL who came to our sessions and sharing knowledge throughout the series.
UNIX-g33ks series will take a break after the end of session 6 until sometime in Jan 2011 to plan and polish up some materials before the start of UNIX-g33ks III : Web Applications.
This part of the series aims to teach the group how to install, configure, and secure web related application technologies in a BSD environments using the previous sessions as a primer for a production ready machine. Prerequisites for this part of the series is minimal; an understanding of the UNIX environment in general and/or attended UNIX Essentials before hand.
