Announcing the 2nd Edition – Using and Administering Linux


Last Updated on September 4, 2023 by David Both

I am proud to announce that my publisher, Apress, will be releasing the 2nd edition of my “Using and Administering Linux – Zero to SysAdmin” series soon.

Just like the 1st edition, this Linux self-study training course, “Using and Administering Linux – Zero to SysAdmin,” consists of a three volume book series.

This Linux training course differs from others because it is a complete self-study course. Even if you are starting from zero knowledge about Linux, you can learn the tasks necessary to becoming a Linux System Administrator, a SysAdmin. This is an intensely hands-on course and almost every chapter contains multiple experiments that provide the opportunities to get that direct experience that so many of us SysAdmins prefer as our learning methodology.

You can click the image in the right sidebar to see more about the 1st edition. I will add a page with much more about this 2nd edition soon.


We are hoping for an Autumn availability for the entire series. The production staff and editors at Apress are working diligently to make this happen. We are planning for a book signing at All Things Open this October. ATO is held from Sunday, October 15 through Tuesday, October 17, in Raleigh, North Carolina. I will post here when I have more information.
