Reddit: *nix skills between 6 and 15 years out of date - how do I proceed with getting up to speed?

Friday 22nd of August 2014 04:38:15 PM

So the title says it all.

My *nix skills are between six and fifteen years out of date. Six years ago was the last time I did anything in the non-Windows world (and that was as a Domino administrator - running on AIX). The last time I actually actively administered a Linux box was back in the 1999 - 2001 time frame.

Now I'm wanting to get back up to speed and get my skills refreshed - where should I look and what should I do?

Currently, I'm in a Microsoft dominated job, but there's an opportunity to do some things with our Linux boxes that I'm looking to explore - so I figured I'd ask for some advice. I use OS X at home almost exclusively.
