    Default Linux Foundation SysAdmin Day sale

    Apparently, there is a SysAdmin Day, and to celebrate it, Linux foundation is offering a free preparatory course for any exam purchased before July 28, + LFS261 DevOps Fundamentals: Implementing Continuous Delivery as a bonus.

    The Linux Foundation July SysAdmin Day Sale

    I've settled my sights on LFCSA as my next cert..would anyone who has done it recommend the Linux Foundation course for someone who also has a Linux Academy subscription? Money's pretty tight right now, and I gave myself 3 months to study for it, so was planning to pay for the exam in autumn.

    How much does the sale save you? A Linux Academy subscription is around $219 a year. So if you did maybe a month or two would you be ahead with the sale?

    Actually it looks like it is the same cost as buying the certification alone. With that in mind then its not bad because Linux Academy is solid.

    Hello securityorc,

    The Visual studio dev essentials program, gives you access to a 3 month free subscription to the Linux Academy website, where you can try out all their courses for said duration. After that, you can continue with their monthly pricing structure or perhaps opt for an annual sub instead.

    Hope this helps and happy studying!

    If you wait until November/December, they might have another Black Friday sale. I got the LFCS course, certification, and a t-shirt for $179.

    The last time they had a sale was back in March. As a reference point I got the LFS201 course 1-year access, 2 LFCS exam attempts, and a Raspberry Pi for $314.

    I already have the Linux Academy subscription from VisualStudio Essentials, though for some reason, I got only 2 months, instead of 3. I will use that to study for LFCSA, and maybe supplement with LPIC1 and 2 training material. I'm also thinking that now would be a good time to do Linux From Scratch..I'll see what time allows.
