Welcome to laid back Friday on the heels of a holiday shortened work week here in the US. Summer has come to a screeching halt in the Chicago area. Kids are back in school so I thought I'd write a bit about education today.
If you happen to be one of those EPM developers who is uncomfortable with Unix/Linux I'd like to encourage you to take the free codecademy course on using the command line. This is a great opportunity to improve your skill set in just a few hours. If you have a job opportunity in a Linux shop, this will certainly give you an advantage over someone with only Windows experience. The use of Linux in corporate environments continues to rise with no sign of slowing down. I'd also recommend learning the vi editor so you can easily edit files. And if you want to be a Linux ninja, learn Python or Perl. Happy training!
