MeansTV has just been killing it lately.
If you haven't heard of them, they're a worker co-op trying to start a leftist media platform. I believe it was started by the team behind some of Bernie's 2016 campaign marketing as well as AOC's campaign.
Great team of people doing some great work!
@alcinnz Wow, I can't believe I a) hadn't thought of that and b) hadn't seen anyone else mention it until now.
Thanks for the idea!
@nev You should watch it! It's a great movie, albeit emotionally draining.
But, I feel you on the old age, unfortunately :(
Haha, yeah I agree that video tutorials aren't necessarily the best way to go about it.
It's more that our boss is itching to throw some money down to get him trained, so we're looking for paid regiments (similar to Linux Academy) to take advantage of.
It's a shame Linux Academy doesn't caption all of their trainings, because it looks like a pretty solid resource otherwise.
Anybody have any recommendations for accessible (specifically fully-captioned) training resources for becoming a linux sysadmin?
A coworker who is deaf is interested in learning more, and we're having trouble finding professional, comprehensive resources for him.

Switching from twitter, so here's a(n) #introduction
Hi! I'm a high school student from Chicago. Right now I spend most of my free time developing tools to give more kids from around the city an opportunity to learn to code. I'm super into good design and improving human interactions, so most of my projects are web-based.
Other things I enjoy: philosophy, electronic music, functional programming, biking.

@jaranta Will do! I push for alternatives every chance I get, but it's difficult to do in many cases due to the University's dependence kind of pushing everyone else to depend on the same stacks, less they risk becoming incompatible or unsupported.
Slow and steady, though, I suppose.
@tsu Thank you! This is very helpful, albeit quite daunting.
I guess it's the same as most other things: just have to do the work and be patient.
@olivebranch I need to look into this. We have a fledgling (and largely powerless) campus workers union that's trying to get started, but here in the deep south of the US there's little room for workers protecting themselves.
social.coop is a cooperatively-run corner of the Fediverse. The instance is democratically governed by its members, who generally share an interest in the co-op model, but topics of discussion range widely.
Our instance is supported by sliding scale contributions of $1-10/mo made via Open Collective. You must have an active Open Collective account to apply for membership; you may set one up here
