Avleen Vig (@avleen) has started an Ops School Syllabus with the goal of defining a course to teach nubile, energetic sysadmins a thing or two about IT operations. The scope of the syllabus is around Linux and networking. The document started with a single page and, through the contributions of several folks, has already expanded to 10 pages. There are lots of good ideas and comments in the document.
Avleen is actively seeking more input for the syllabus and welcomes those who want to participate. I just contributed some ideas and recommend you do the same. To receive a link to the syllabus, reach out to Avleen at email@example.com.
