you're watching ITPro TV [MUSIC] Hi, I'm your host Sophie and I'm here with our subject matter expert, Don. We're here to tell you a little bit about the course L Pick2. So Don, you're the subject matter engineer for the SME for this course, can you tell us a little bit about yourself? Sure, so, I've been working with Linux and one from another since 1992, basically right around the time when it came out. So I've got a lot of experience in the field, I've worked in the financial and insurance industry. So, I've supported production Linux environments that have handled tens of thousands of employees and customers, very active environments. And I get to bring a lot of that knowledge into what we do right here on the show. So, we're gonna be learning about everything we need for L pick 2, but we're also gonna be learning a little bit about how it's used out there in the real world, which is a lot of fun. So before I take this course, are there any prerequisites or training that I should have first? All right, well, I know this is called L pick2, but it's a little bit confusing because it's actually L pick two, part two. So, if you are watching this show, you're expected to have all of the knowledge from both parts of L pick one and the first part of L pick two. Now, L pick 1 and Linux+ basically are identical. So either one will do and with the first part of L pick one or L pick two is actually the 201-4 50 course we expect you to have that knowledge either to have watched the course or to just have the relevant knowledge from your own experience. If you're just getting started, this episode or this course might not be the right place for, you should consider jumping all the way back to the L pick one first and working your way up to here. So, what are some topics that we're gonna be covering in this course? Well, that's one of the neat things about this course, we cover a lot of really cool stuff. You're gonna see how to actually configure services, we'll bring up DNS servers, web servers, things like Apache, like we'll actually see how to bring up a web server on Linux. So it's not just the operating system anymore, now it's focusing on some of the services. We'll do some neat authentication, will set up an open lDAP authentication system for our machines to authenticate with. We'll even authenticate against an active directory server because why not, right?. We need to learn how to do this, we use them out there in the real world. And on the security side, we'll see a little bit about hardening Linux servers as well as using things like open VPN to set up a VPN server and VPN client infrastructure. So, really cool things that you actually use in the real world, it's a lot of neat stuff. And once we finish this course, is there a certification or an exam tied to the course? Yeah, this is all tied to the L pick to engineer certification or the Linux Professional Institute certification level two, that's what this is. Now, to get the certification, you have to pass the 201-4 50 exam and the 202-450 exam. This particular course is just the 202-450, you need to watch the other course for 201. Once you've got both under your belt, you take the exams, each exam is just 60 questions you have, I believe it's 90 minutes. You can take it through Pearson view, and when you take the exam and pass, once you pass both of them, you're awarded the LPIC2 engineer certification. And since you're gonna be leading us through this course, what are you most excited about? I'm excited about doing real workloads, right? A lot of times when we do Linux training like this, we're focused on things that are important, how the colonel works or how do you install software. But it's really kind of these vague general concepts and and foundational knowledge, but in this course we do real skills. You need to build a web server, we're going to build a web server, you need to build DNS, we're going to build a DNS server, so we get to run through those processes. And this is the skill that you can actually take and use in the workplace. So that's really exciting to me, this to me is the real work that we can get done with Linux. Well, if all that sounds interesting to you, then you're in the right place. So stay tuned, we'll get ready to dive into LPIC. Thank you for watching ITPro TV. [MUSIC]
