Anybody Remember Grammar School?























There's a better way to learn System Administration for the Solaris OS - Part I.

It's Oracle University's E-Kit Plus. The E-Kit Plus is a free Apple iPad application you can download from the Apple App Store.

  1. Register for the course at Oracle University.
  2. Download the eKit Plus app from the App Store
  3. Activate the app and begin enjoying the cool multi-media content.




Take your class from the cool comfort of your Apple iPad and start having things your way for a change.

System Admin and Developer Community of OTN is Live

Four OTN Communities

As Justin just said in the OTN Blog we are now all One:

There's still a lot of cleaning up to do, but with rare exceptions, all relevant content from BigAdmin, SDN, and OpenSolaris.com is now in the Systems Community of OTN.

In future blogs I'll provide tips and ticks for navigating, finding and, if you're so inclined, submitting content.  That's content for developers and administrators of Solaris, Linux, Servers, Storage, and related software, hardware, and tools. I'll also point out the differences in mechanics between the Systems Community of OTN and the Sun legacy sites.
