- Save files from your laptop, phone, etc to one central location

- Download and watch movies from the internet

- Upload your photos, view them from your phone and back them up to the cloud


Building your own server will take you behind the scenes on how an operating system really works. Using software which is 100% free, you will learn:

- How to install, maintain and secure a working Linux server

- What are the differences between the various Linux versions

- How to use your server as a personal secure web server and file server, and where to get ideas for other uses for it

- Key linux command line skills and how to put them to practical use

- How to troubleshoot common problems as they happen

The class was well taught and interesting, but the instructor sometimes presumed information that I, a rank beginner, did not have. However, the instructor answered all the questions that I put to him.
