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 workshop 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.

Also, be sure to check out the FreeBSD training videos that I created using the following links: Basic Advanced

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.

FreeBSD Day

National FreeBSD Day is June 19th.

What's in store for is slowly but surely being transformed into an online training platform. You'll see more tutorial links posted in the near future, but the end goal is a more feature rich place to learn about BSD technologies.

BSD Articles

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

The primary goal of is to create a lab environment for testing various BSD technology. The insights gained will be shared on this website in written and video form as a way to document my experiences with BSD, Python, Certification and CSS. From there I'd like to pursue the BSD Professional Certification from the BSD Certification Group

First steps

The preliminary plan is as follows:
