The bootcamp is a fast paced course and assumes basic understanding of computers. If you have worked on any flavor of UNIX (Linux, Solaris, HP-UX, AIX etc.) as a user (not necessarily as an administrator), or have done some system administration on Windows NT, you will find the course to be accessible. Most of all you will need a motivation to aggressively learn, while having fun, during the class. If you have any questions about the difficulty level of the class, please contact us at classes (at)
