Postby detroitwillfall » Tue Aug 12, 2014 9:51 pm

greetings all!

my name is dwf, iam currently an information technology student studying for my a+ certifications.

i was wondering particularly for programming and coding what are some beneficial programs i should be looking into? total beginner that is. like C+, java ect?

i currently have pythons total beginners course and guide ive been getting into on windows pc. but want to focus more on the skills then the enviroment. but eventually would love to contribute, study, and of course learn.


but long story short if someone could point me into other certifications, or programs/books and areas i should also focus in on i would be very greatful.

my a+ grant does allow for me to take network administration + for cert or server administration. but iam undecided and still just focusing on completing a+ atm.

anyhow sorry to ramble, hope to network with all positive individuals

thanks,

dwf

welcome to the Mint forums.

- do read the Mint Users Guide that came with your Mint install.

the A+ is a good step, in getting some PC qualifications.
maybe, the next step could be a MSCE or a RHEL,
depending on which O/S type that you want to chase.

would you recommend me not having multiple boot pc as my main pc? currently its win 7/8 and I was trying to get the LM cinnamon flavor on there but I think I need to disable my NVidia because it freezes after loading from usb.


personally, I want to pursue what will keep me employed and HAPPY. after watching revolutionary OS Linux, I don't want to support mainstream OS anymore and would rather contribute freely with members of this community and for Linux as a whole. Learning valuable languages and certs along the way.

what is a cheap and easy system that I can put LM on to not compromise my main familys pc? possibly a cheap laptop/netbook or pad? I use to have an acer aspire ONE that was triple booted with 10.7.8, win 7, and Ubuntu but I want to totally dedicate to LM.

which msce and redhat certifications would you suggest? I think both could be extremely valuable for employment opportunities alone but would prefer to stay with redhat.

while i understand your point, unless you live here in the city i dont think you understand how dier the situations and problems we face everyday. and the username isnt meant to be a general interpretation of what is to COME of detroit, its a snapshot of the present state its in. For instance, my alternate email is detroitwillrise. but this is just a username. there is no peace, or love in the city. let alone the state. i condone nothing but the truth. its very easy to fault, judge, or prejudge someone, something, someANYTHING on the internet. with that being said, i appreciate being able to atleast give you a point of view from someone who knows whats going on.

The internet is full of interesting and knowledgeable people all waiting to be offended by something.
The great thing about your people, Dib, is that most of them don't notice.
