More about Training for Common Operating Systems

Operating systems comprise the backbone of personal computers and mobile devices. They act as the bridge between the hardware and the software applications that we use every day. Training in operating systems will vary dependent on the type of operating system as well as level of difficulty. Consider taking a training in OS, whether looking to advance a career in systems administration, web development, app development for mobile devices, or simply gain a better understanding of how to use a specific operating system.

Courses outlining the use and configuration of operating systems will vary in content based on the software covered, but generally include:

  • The basic architecture of the given OS
  • Command-line Interface (CLI) operation and configuration
  • File system maintenance and recovery
  • Restoring device to factory defaults
  • Network utilities

Linux and UNIX: powerful opens source operating systems

Linux and UNIX are open source through the GNU project, designed for IT professionals to communicate with multiple devices on a given computer. What sets them apart from other operating systems, and likewise specializes their use for IT professionals, is a minimalist interface - putting function far ahead of form.

Linux

Linux is an open source operating system that powers almost 95% of the world’s supercomputers, a majority of the world’s financial trades, and all Android devices. The primary benefit of Linux, from an IT perspective, is that the source code it utilizes is freely available, allowing IT professionals to make changes to the system without restriction. Courses in Linux are generally catered to system administrators or developers but can also be found from a user perspective. Linux is commonly used for computer software, hardware and game development

UNIX

UNIX and UNIX –like systems are commonly used in internet servers and workstations. UNIX operating systems power personal computers from a number of private companies, including Intel, HP and Solaris.

The Android OS is based on Linux and designed for touchscreen mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablets as well as other commonly used technological devices including televisions and digital cameras. Android is ostensibly open source, although development generally involves a variety of propriety software. Take a course in android and gain valuable skills in app development.  

App development courses for the android operating system are usually organized by level of difficulty. Introductory courses cover a broad range of material, including:

  • The native layer
  • The application layer
  • Setting up Android SDK
  • Creating a new project on Android
  • Integrated Development Environments
  • Third-party Android add-ons

Advanced Android programs are intended to guide app developers through more technical design and functional aspects of app development. While course topics will vary, they generally cover  a range of complex topics, including:

  • Natural Development Kit
  • Testing Android apps
  • Implementing security
  • Android application programming interfaces(API) for audio, video, geolocation, etc.
