Welcome to the website for the Unix System Administration DeCal for Spring 2010! We offer two sections of this course, aimed at students of different ability levels. For more information, visit the web pages for the individual sections below.
Freshmen and sophomores should enroll in the CS 98 (lower division) section corresponding to their class; students with junior or senior standing should enroll in the CS 198 (upper division) section corresponding to their class. Although both sections have the same CCN's, each will have a different lecture each class, and will have a shared lab period during the second hour of each class meeting.
Intended for students with little or no prior Unix experience. You will learn how to use and administer Unix operating systems (Linux, *BSD, Solaris), and how to set up a basic web server.
Intended for students with some experience using Unix OR the willingness to learn quickly; no prior Unix experience is assumed but we will get you up to speed fast! A broad range of topics will be covered to bestow upon you a broad understanding of how Linux in particular works on several levels, and also the intuition with which you can delve further and learn more by yourself.
If you have any questions, you may contact the DeCal staff at email@example.com, email the facilitators individually, or stop by the OCF lab in the basement of Eshleman Hall.
