    I learned and improved the content what I learned in class. It was quite interesting and usefull. I will work on my desktop computer totally on linux and apply for workplace in linux area. the last class was the most interesting to get the idea of web server on public internet. there can be more detail added in web server part but it was sufficient at basic level. ofcourse, I would recommend. the teacher should give sufficient time in lab class, so depressing.

  2. Did you learn something?
    Mostly I refreshed and put together previous knowledge, got some more confidence.

    Was it useful?
    Definitely. Made me exercise and refresh memory.

    How are you going to use skills after course?
    I’ve got several useful links to continue learning, that I’m going to do. And continue using and working with Linux.

    Which class was the most interesting?
    LAMP – putting everything together :)

    How could I improve the course?
    First of all make sure that no meetings are planned for teaching hours.

    Would you recommend this course to a friend or a collegue?
    Yes, to someone who has either good base in Computer Science or some knowledge about Linux, not a completely newbie.

    Anything else on your mind?
    Pace of teaching is great, no long pauses, teacher is holding everybody’s attention. Content and way of teaching can be adjusted depending on the group.
    Depending on background of student this course may demand a lot of independant (out of class) work.
