The SRJC Spring semester starts next week, so now's the time to sign up for classes, if you haven't already.

If you're fairly new to the Linux or UNIX command line, or you know someone who is, then here's a new announcement for Spring's Thursday evening Introduction to UNIX & Linux course:

Would you like deeper control of your Linux or Mac OS X computer?  Each is based on a variety of the UNIX operating system, and you can learn the UNIX command line this Spring in the Thursday evening "Introduction to UNIX" class at SRJC.

Learn to use powerful application and utility programs available only from the UNIX command line, in a course that combines both hands-on and online instruction.  And because the grading is based only on online exercises and tests, attendance won't affect your grade -- although, of course, students do best attending as many class sessions as possible.

The details:
CIS 50.71 Introduction to UNIX, section 6851
with instructor Eric Skagerberg
Thursdays 6 p.m. - 10 p.m. (lecture usually 6:00 - 8:00, followed by lab time), 17 sessions, Jan. 18 to May 17
SRJC's Santa Rosa campus, Maggini 2926 (Third floor)

New this semester:  Online reading assignments, and no required textbooks.

Take advantage of this semester's reduced rate of $20 per unit (down from $26).  This 3-unit course totals only $60 for 17 sessions, plus a $13 per-semester health fee.
For the complete SRJC Fee Schedule:

(... and stay tuned for Spring revisions!)

Online registration is open now:

The Thursday evening course has a great hands-on, in-person lecture format.  But if you're already enrolled in another Thursday night SRJC course, you can still sign up for an online-only section (5307), taught by Gary Brown, which uses the same exercises and tests.

CIS 50.71 Introduction to UNIX is part of SRJC's Computer Science A.S. degree, the Microcomputer Systems Database User certificate, the PC Specialist certificate, and several Web Site Development certificates.

Please feel free to write or call if you have any questions.
