I spent all of last week learning Linux (courtesy of IBM) and what I learned is dovetailing quite nicely into my eight months of working with Lotus Foundations. My immediate reaction after completing that course is that Linux certification will be what separates the high value Foundations consultants in the marketplace. You don't need Linux skills to install and support Foundations but everything makes a whole lot more sense when you have those skills on board.
On 13th and 14th November I'll be attending another (free) training course at IBM in Sydney to go through the official Foundations training and after that I'll be feeling ready to take on the world. Anyone else out there booked into the Sydney Foundations course?
