Mark Dain Today I'm writing documentation on Linux for my coworkers as we're finally moving off Windows Server. Our platform has no more Windows specific components due to some recent work so it's onwards with switching. Need to setup some training sessions later this week for getting people used to Debian (command line). Any tips? Has anyone taught Linux before?

Haaktu Tip: make the training goal driven. Then break things down from there. Classic Unix/Linux training starts with `pwd`, `'ls`, `mkdir`, etc, explaining each command in full. When I do one-on-ones I always start with: what do we want to do? 1) Login 2) man man 3) do what we want to do 3.x) explain what's needed. Let them ask/discover the rest.

John Olinda When I taught my students some command line basics, this is what I ended up with: seoul-christian-sc... The website is incomplete since I changed schools before we finished the course, but this got my students off the ground with Debian and Bash. You can also use this video as a basic intro:

Jani Mustonen If only, if only. Been administrating a mess of Windows and Linux systems for a while. We have a lot of software that don't - and won't - have Linux versions.

Kodo I think it's pretty intuitive. my 2 year old has arch linux on her laptop
Mark Dain Dear god, did she set it up herself? I saw this little girl, maybe 7, playing a masterpiece on a piano at the train station once with hundreds of people watching. It was impressive. She got clapping and cheering when she finished playing. To protect my ego from absolutely being shattered, I reminded myself she's not Zend certified. I then went home and saw a Hacker News post where someone made a working digital clock in Conway's Game of Life. Now it turns out your two year old can use Arch (I can't). I'm the dumbest person on the planet.
Martijn Sounds like a job for (ping!)
