Re: Red Hat Linux Intro Course (fwd)

I have been thinking about putting together something similar to this with a
slightly different focus in Mt. Vernon sometime in late April or early May.
I wouldn't, however, charge $950, but somewhere in the neighborhood of $200
for a 5 to 10, 2-3 hour classes with slightly less personalization (more
people).  This idea and the classes are in very vague stages of development,
but I thought I would get the idea out to see if anyone was interested in
helping or participating in anyway.  I still need to see how much it would
cost to rent out one of the medium sized computer labs at the high school
there, and I am assuming not to much, being part of MVTHS' alumni and all :)

I would probably have a more web/e-commerce oriented focus however.
Perl/mysql/CGI/Mason/HTML/web design, etc.  Of course, doing all of the
system administration examples using linux, with a problem of having no
linux machines at the high school.  I don't really know and right now it is
not much more than a few dozen pages of notes, a few dozen bookmarks and a
thought.  Each of those topics could easily be broken down to short-term
courses of their own though, especially Perl and mysql/database design in

Just thought I would throw this in the mix and see what other peoples
opinion of this might be.  I definitely know Steven could help out with this
big time and I would be totally suprised if we couldn't get atleast 20-30
people interested in the first run, if not more.  However, this is also a
blantant attempt at finding some means to afford finishing college which is
currently draining my faux bank account(loans) as it is.
