Licensing and Experience Courseware for Teaching Quality Control

The UNIX Scripting and Programming training program provides a project based approach to scripting and application development; the duration of the base program is 22 days. The client selects the component modules specific to its informational technology infrastructure: Linux, UNIX, and mobile device programming. A lesson plan based upon the standards of the New York State Department of Education will be provided as part of qualifying the subject matter, examples, exercises, and program duration. Educational consultancy topics, inclusive of project specifications also can be incorporated into the program.

  • For employees with minimal experience, the program can include system analysis and design and object oriented methodologies.
  • For experienced fast-track information technology professionals, the training program can be directed to enterprise commercial software - IBM, Oracle, Microsoft, or mobile device application development.

SYS-ED's training programs utilize the full complement of delivery medium: distance-learning, web-based, and technology driven classrooms. As part of conducting a training program, subject matter is organized for utilization in courseware as a learning center.  In order to accommodate employee workloads and staff in remote geographic locations, component courses can be scheduled over non-consecutive weeks utilizing a combination of classroom training and distance-learning. At the client's discretion, checklist of completed tasks, validation assessment, and a final examination can be utilized.

Linux and Hybrid Scripting Environments

There currently is no single standard for the programmatic implementation of web server capabilities. Nor is there a dominant commercial standard. Both open source and commercial software are being utilized in hybrid combinations.

In addition to WIMP, WAMP, and LAMP, there has been increased scripting with Microsoft PowerShell and open source Korn shell and Perl.

Technology Exchange Websites

SYS-ED's websites compile, organize, and present software specific and established operational categorizations of information technology. They provide a framework for assessing knowledge transfer: web-based training, classroom instruction, technology updates, courseware, training aids, learning paths, and validation assessment.


Footnote 1:
David Silverberg and David Shapiro were both among the first wave of technologist and programmers who evaluated the UNIX operating system and designed and coded C programs. Dave Silverberg was coding programs and reviewing source code and later taught classes at Bell Laboratories. David Shapiro, in conjunction with classmates at Union College and Cornell University, became familiar with the capabilities and long term potential of low level programming languages, and early versions of both UNIX and BASIC.

SYS-EDís core UNIX and Linux curriculum has been submitted to the New York State Department of Education - Bureau of Proprietary School Supervision for review.
