Guest Author

Training Tuesday Edition - 1

Blog written by Craig McBride

With “work from home” mandates and less opportunity to go to in-person classes, you might be looking for training opportunities you can start on today. We all need some help to get started on developing our skills. To make it easy for you, we’ve put together a series of blogs where you’ll find free, short videos that you can take at your own pace to get a better at understanding of Oracle Linux 8. You can develop skills to use and administer Oracle Linux 8 on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, on-premises, or in hybrid environments.

This first blog focuses on the installation and boot process. You can learn step-by-step how to complete an Oracle Linux 8 installation for on-premises deployment and how to create an Oracle Linux 8 instance on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. You can also learn about the boot process and how to configure different services to start at boot time.

Here’s the list of videos and the time it takes for you to complete each one. In less than an hour, you can complete installation training:

  • video Installing Oracle Linux 8 duration (8 Min)
  • video Install Oracle Linux 8 on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure duration (4 Min)
  • video BIOS Firmware Bootloader Process on Oracle Linux 8 duration (7 Min)
