It’s free as in beer. From Linux Journal:
A little less than a year ago, the Linux Foundation launched a program to provide a variety of training opportunities for Linux professionals. Just a few months later, the Foundation moved the program online, offering web-based sessions of select courses to reach a wider audience. On Tuesday, they took it one step further, announcing the free — as in beer — Linux Training Webinar Series.
The idea behind the Linux Foundation Training Program was to offer job training that would help fill the continuing demand for Linux professionals. The courses would be taught not by professors or lecturers, but by actual Linux developers, including the Foundation’s Technical Advisory Board which boasts names like Ted Ts’o, Jonathan Corbet, Alan Cox, and Chris Wright, among others.
