FreeBSD Training | PyBUG

What is PyBUG? Check out my lightning talk I gave on PyBUG at PyCascades 2019! PyBUG Lightning Talk. PyBUG, the Python BSD Users Group: an online users group of both Python and BSD users working together to share ideas and play around with these amazing industrial tools, has begun. We have a wiki with the first training workshop on there. It's been adapted by the community from the SCaLE 17x and 18x workshops I taught. I hope you enjoy, feel free to contribute to the wiki by adding any improvements, here's the link: BSD Programming Workshop wiki. We also just added a training for getting Python installed on FreeBSD and ready to follow along with online tutorials.

In Person Training

I'm always on the lookout for places I can teach. I've was given the opportunity to teach a full day workshop on FreeBSD in SoCal at the conference SCaLE 17x and 18x. All the new material from 18x is available here as Markdown: SCALE 18x updated workshop Learn more here: FreeBSD Workshop March 2019 Download the PDF of the commands used in the 2019 workshop here: Commands.

I have several articles published about FreeBSD. Here's one I wrote about how you too can write an article for the FreeBSD Journal, Writing an Article for the FreeBSD Journal

My Getting Started with FreeBSD article was published in the Jan/Feb 2019 issue of the FreeBSD Journal. You can read it by visiting the following Getting Started with FreeBSD Article

Be sure to check out my trip report from my first BSDCan that was published in the FreeBSD Journal. You can either read it in the journal or read it on the FreeBSD Foundation Blog.

Also, I was a speaker at EuroBSDCon 2018. If you'd like to read my trip report that was published in the FreeBSD Journal you can now read the FreeBSD Journal for free online! Look for the Conference Report in the last FreeBSD Journal issue of 2018
