"Helping you to acquire real engineering skills."

What do you like best?

The training platform specialises in Linux and cloud solutions. Courses include a unique mix of video lessons and practice exercises that help users to master the subject. The most significant advantage of the platform is helping you to acquire real engineering skills. They encourage you to think critically and explain why specific techniques and actions are more beneficial than others. You are provided with an excellent laboratory equipped with software such as Azure, Google Cloud Platform, where you could learn by performing actions on real environments and facing real issues.

What do you dislike?

Sadly, the instructors don't respond promptly, so often the community advise and answer my questions faster. Also, the mobile application could be improved, as it sometimes doesn't work correctly. The certificates are useless and seem to be just a trophy.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I highly recommend the platform, as you can acquire real engineering skills and useful techniques. Also, the community is helpful, and you respond quickly.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Linux Academy taught me how to use Azure, and thanks to their laboratories I acquired many practical skills and got to know some practice solutions.

I see this platform an excellent advantage for learning tools for communication and technology that goes from management to other add-on platforms in the clouds like Google APIs, it gives you the opportunity to learn when you can and in the comfort of your home and learn what you need or what you want.

What do you dislike?

The visualization of the courses becomes somewhat annoying since they must be previously loaded and if you have internet interruptions it will not flow correctly.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Teachers are a love, always try from the beginning to the end of the course, you have a message tray in which you can write if you have some complications and they will surely answer you as soon as possible.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Learning is one of the most effective methods for the development of any area, many do not have time to go to an institution to see class and develop their knowledge through online courses and can learn what you want.

"Hands-on experience"

What do you like best?

By and by I'd go for it in the event that you truly needed to memorize and lean toward to observe a video and get a few hands-on through their labs. For occurrence, I pay the yearly charge since truly it's made a difference me with my work obligations exceptionally well. The cloud classes for AWS, GCP, and Sky blue are moreover well worth the cost, not the say the broad scope on Linux stage alone. Typically particularly genuine in case you compare this benefit with others like it where you'll pay more and likely won't get as much for the soak cost. Too, they now include within the scope, get to to Cloud Appraisal where you'll be able to run scenarios to assist construct your aptitude and understanding as well as presently scaleyoursource.com (learn from other designers within the genuine world - this is often unused and I can't talk much to it other than it looks to be useful)

What do you dislike?

I picked up a few information from it doing my LPIC two a long time back, but I found the in general quality (time has passed so ideally now not the case) kinda missing, I moreover came up against one sentence structure error. I found the CBT chunks recordings on the same theme were phenomenal.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I subscribed with them to memorize Linux (I'd not utilized it more than changing registries some time recently) back in January 2015. I examined off and on (more off than on unfortunately) and overseen to memorize sufficient to pass the RHCSA in May of 2016. I was at that point enlisted by them in late June of 2016 to work within the Bolster Dept and I still work there nowadays. I can tell you there may be other preparing stages that have more substance, but no one has more energetic individuals working to progress. Everybody takes this truly and are here to help!

"Linux academy review "

What do you like best?

Courses available on the website. For a monthly fee, every single course is available for signup. Thats amazing. I mainly used this product for Amazon AWS solutions architect certification training. the course was very effective in helping me getting certified in my very first attempt. The other aspect of this product is the free mobile IOS app for download that helps me complete my courses on time on the go. The app also allows to download videos for offline preparation. This is extremely helpful while traveling in the subway. The website is also very intuitive and easy to use. I never once had to use the help option or contact a customer representative.

What do you dislike?

High monthly few did put me off after a while. The high recurring cost monthly did force me to pull the plug during the months I was not using the product. I would have continued paying monthly subscription if it was much lesser. The ability to do courses with smaller duration would have been helpful without such a high fee.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great product but high monthly cost. If there are a lot of things to learn in a month then it is most ideal as all the courses are open to you.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Taken course to enhance my technical skills at my work. As a DevOps engineer the skills that I have gathered are put to solving issues in my day to day tasks.

"Comprehensive Learning Platform"

What do you like best?

The subscription model is nice since it provides access to all available courses. If some courses have particular points on which you want to improve upon, but you don't want to take the entire course, that's incredibly valuable. I also appreciate that there's a wide variety of courses, rather than a narrow focus on cloud services like A Cloud Guru or Cloud Academy. With regards to cloud, however, it is nice that Linux Academy provides access to real AWS accounts and other infrastructure.

What do you dislike?

Linux Academy could provide additional quizzes and practice exams. The mobile app could also use some work, although it has significantly improved.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Because it's a subscription service, ensure that you have the time to dedicate to focusing on courses. Otherwise, a pay per course model may be better for you.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are setting up a public-private cloud solution internally. I did not originally come out of the Linux world, so this set of courses has been immensely valuable in improving my skill set to help perform the forthcoming migration.

"The best Linux Academy "

What do you like best?

The courses begin with an introduction to the Linux server and from there, everything necessary to learn this powerful operating system is built.

What do you dislike?

there is nothing that I do not like since it is a website that offers interactive video courses, step by step, which will take a beginner from free software to a professional during the next months.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The first month is free and then you only pay $ 9.99 per month, which is much cheaper than any course of this style!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

You can organize the server after a lesson, and then delete the file system. It does not take more than two clicks to remove the server and rebuild one from scratch. The ideal site to learn everything related to Linux.

"Great for GCP Certification"

- Content is well written and tailored towards certification

- Provides linux environments for students on the fly, you can provision about 10 virtual servers

- Many learning paths available for anyone who is interested in getting up to speed with cloud and/or linux infrastructure

What do you dislike?

- I feel like their web user experience can be improved, but I feel the same about almost all mainstream learning platforms. I have yet to see a well-designed user experience on a learning platform

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

- Getting certified in cloud technologies offers a great advantage for consultancies and Linux Academy is a great tool to achieve that.
