CA249 - Enterprise Computer Systems Configuration

Quickest way to find this web page:
Google ca249 dcu
Think about it: All other ways (starting at the CA site, Googling my name, etc.) will take much longer to get here.
Just Google module code and DCU and it is the first hit.

My section - Intro to Linux and Shell scripting

Books




Wikipedia

Sometimes I link to Wikipedia. I need to write something in defence of this.

On the one hand, Wikipedia is deeply flawed, so you should use all links to Wikipedia with extreme caution. Many people refuse to link to it.

On the other hand, it is often clearly the best thing to link to on a topic. I say: Link to it, but use with caution and scepticism.
