    Default What to do next.

    Hey, I thought I would ask for your opinions on a couple of courses. Not sure what one to do next

    1) Red hat - I can do basic linux but that's about it.
    2) Python

    Background:

    Been in IT for more than 15 years. The last 9 or so in Security. In the past I did tons of admin and operations type stuff (mainly windows), but now it's a lot of either business or architecture. I would like to expand my knowledge and both courses seem interesting to me. Just not sure what would be the best ROI.

    Thought, comments, questions etc.

    Cheers

    Why not do both?

    Red Hat would be excellent to know, especially if you set RHCSA as a goal. If you go for RHCE, you'll have to learn some bash scripting, which would also be great to know.

    Codeacademy's free Python course will teach you the basics and you could go self-paced. So like scaredoftests suggested, you could probably do both RH and Python at the same time without too much trouble.

    I could do both, but for the lack of time. I'll take a look at both courses and see which one seems to grab me.

    Thanks for the comments.

    I wouldn't do either unless planning on using on a regular basis. Got any Linux server or python projects in mind?

    @yoba222. Good Idea. I do use linux pretty often, so I think I will do the RH course. Thanks
