Where To Get Great Free Linux Ebooks

Today there is so much information on the internet that you do not know where to start looking for it. The most obvious place to look for information is in search engines. There you enter your keywords and get maybe 1,000,000 web sites related to your keywords?! This is the problem with the internet and probably the main reason why ebooks emerged. Ebooks provide you with concise information about a special topic. You have to pay for most of the ebooks on the web today but there are still some great ebooks available for free, you just have to know where to get them.
Since this blog is about computer security I am going to provide you with mostly security and network related books. If you want to get other free ebooks take a look at Wowio or search Google for “free ebooks.”

Great Linux Ebook Web Site
I recently found a really great web site which has a whole lot of Linux guides (ebooks). Take a look at it. It is called The Linux Documentation Project and their main goal is to provide detailed Linux tutorials. For example if you want to learn about Linux System Administration take a look at this guide. You can choose to download them or read them online.

Another web site at which you might want to take a look at would be Astalavista. They have a whole lot of whitepapers on computer security. Furthermore there are some guides and tutorials provided by users which might interest you.

Tell me what you think about it.

Learning Python

Our way of living has totally changed over the last years. Now a days almost everything relies somehow on computers, e.g. a clothing shop uses some kind of software to keep track of their clients. Since this is getting more popular there is a stronger need for people who are able to create such software. Because of that I am going to show you how and where you can learn about creating software, i.e. programming. In this case we will use Python as our programming language.
Why Python?
Python is an relatively new programming language compared to C and other languages. Since it is a more modern programming language it is easier to use and does not require that much in-depth understanding. Further it is good to start with because you can see, at least partly, the results of what you programmed immediately.

To get started download the latest version of Python and install it. If you are having problems with setting it up visit the links below or post your problem here and I will get back to you.
Learning Python
To be able to use a programming language you first need to get a basic understanding. For that reason I suggest you read this Python tutorial. If you want to get even more in-depth knowledge feel free to take a look at this article. After having read about Python start to program a little bit. Don’t be frustrated if your program doesn’t work right away, that’s how you actually learn how to program. We learn through mistakes.
