While James and I were filming our lynda.com course, DevOps Fundamentals, I was impressed by this LinkedIn tech vending machine in their offices. Swipe badge, get doodad. I had just come off two different jobs where it was more like “pester IT for the thing you need, wait a couple weeks, maybe someone will drop by with one.”
It’s not “Chef or Puppet,” but it is self service automation! Think outside the box. Or in this case, I guess, inside a box. Kudos to LinkedIn IT for a user friendly solution.
Our LinkedIn Learning content manager, Jeff Kellum, tells James and I that our DevOps Fundamentals course is “the third most popular IT course in our library right now”! You can start a free trial period at Lynda by going to http://www.lynda.com/trial/ErnestMueller. We’ll post more about the experience we had making the course, it was a lot of fun and we learned a lot about going in front of the camera!
