Training Courses, Glasgow or Edinburgh

Hi, I have staff wanting to attend shell scripting courses in Glasgow or Edinburgh. No one will run the courses for 1 or 2 people. Does anyone else require this course? If so we can maybe get together and try to arrange it?
Thanks,

    Shell scripting isn't really an Oracle certification topic (or even an Oracle topic). There are any number of tutorials online for learning shell scripting. A quick Google of shell scripting tutorial found several. Looking at them briefly, this is the one that caught my eye:

    The nearest oracle certification exam is:

    http://education.oracle.com/pls/web_prod-plq-dad/db_pages.getpage?page_id=5001&get_params=p_exam_id:1Z0-402&p_org_id=&lang=

    And the associated training is:

    http://education.oracle.com/pls/web_prod-plq-dad/db_pages.getpage?page_id=609&p_org_id=28&lang=US&get_params=dc:D71855GC20,p_preview:N

    That has a component of shell scripting, but possibly not to a great depth. Having said that the overall topics may be what you want.


    I dont think there is an LVC for this:



    I did notice some oracle self study cdrom's here:

    http://education.oracle.com/education/html/pages/page_35_courses.html?c_num=2






    You may find a local trainer that covers the courses .... a bit of googling found this: (which you may have found already): ( And it helps keep the Scots in Scotland rather than down to london!)

    http://www.stayahead.com/maps/location_with_groups.cfm?location=Edinburgh


    The provider may be good or rubbish .... And I'd look arround at others as well. You've not indicated a varient ... e.g. solaris/linux ... though for newbies I'd now probably recommend bash shell scriting anyway.

    shelll scripting can be a bit of an art and not every can really get into it. And some good linux/unix is known as well. And the more you (think) you know the more trouble you gets into at times ( for you subsitute 'I'). But if locality is important to you that may help.

    .....

    That said if you ar looking to Oracle Certify you may need to stick with Oracle. Or you have may oracle training credits.

    .....

    If you go down the solaris genre you can get a few LVC's etc if that is of any use:

    http://education.oracle.com

    - In Find a course - enter solaris


    :: Some may come close .... but others may not match the stage the stage you require:

    For instance: Oracle Solaris 10 Operating System Essentials and UNIX and Linux Essentials NEW may cover some things you want, but not the depth, and a lot of things you don. If they ar LVC they can be done online.



    Hope this broth of ramblings makes sense. I am writing a lot of nonsense today so i cant bear to proof read this.

    sad to see Sun go down :-(

    ten years ago I attended a Shell Scripting course (one week) at Sun. No certification, but very good course.
