Testimonial from my students:

  • Hi Imran, I have completed this course twice. It was more than just wonderful.

  • To all of you that are looking for a REALLY GOOD LINUX course, THIS IS IT, SERIOUSLY I promise you won’t find a course on LINUX here that is THIS GOOD. — T.J. Marstiller
  • Hi Imran, I am so glad to inform you that i got two offers as a Linux engineer.  Through your course I gained lot of confidence and your interview tips really helped me a lot to crack the technical rounds.  I have recommended your courses to my friends as well.  Thank you so much for your efforts in sharing your knowledge to learners like us.  — Subhasree
  • Imran is a very knowledgeable and engaging instructor. As others have said, you can tell that he is not just trying to sell a course, but that he is invested in giving his students a strong career foundation with a positive and approachable attitude. He is also entertaining with his use of pop culture and practical work examples. It really feels like you’re in a classroom with him. I’m taking this course mainly as a hobbyist, but got a lot from it already. The homework assignments, quizzes, and handouts help reinforce the material.   — Raymond B.

  • In the first place I say a big thank you to the instructor for making such a great course. I was afraid to learn Linux. I now feel very comfortable with Linux. I have understood both the concept behind and the practical as well. I would recommend every one who is NEW to Linux and wants to grab it once and for all without wasting time to go ahead and ENROLL. You will not regret it. I would like the instructor to do same for WINDOWS SERVER ADMIN., I don’t seem to find any better and beginner oriented course out there that could be matched with this course. To me, it is the BEST Linux Course on Online. I just started some real world projects with Linux after this great course, I was new to Linux and in just a month I am on the command line always playing.  — Opoku Bright (Udemy Student)
