If you want to learn how to use Linux and level up your career but are pressed for time, listen on. As the founder of the Linux Training Academy and an instructor of several courses, I´ve had the good fortune of helping thousands of people hone their Linux skills. Interacting with so many people who are just getting started with the Linux operating system has given me invaluable insight into the particular struggles and challenges people face at this stage. One of the biggest challenges for people interested in learning the ins and outs of Linux is simply a lack of time. When you are working with a limited and extremely valuable resource, you want to make sure you make the most of it. The next biggest challenge for Linux newcomers is knowing where to start. There is so much information available that deciding what to focus your attention on first is a big enough hurdle to keep many people from even starting. What´s worse is starting down the path of learning only to discover too many concepts, commands, and nuances that aren´t explained. This kind of experience is frustrating and leaves you with more questions than answers. That´s why I´ve written this book. Not only have I condensed the most important material into five sections, each designed to be consumed in a day, but I´ve also structured the content in a logical and systematic manner. This way you´ll be sure to make the most out of your time by learning the foundational aspects of Linux first and then building upon that foundation each day. In Learn Linux in 5 Days, you will learn the most important concepts and commands and be guided step by step through several practical and real-world examples. As new concepts, commands, or jargon are encountered, they are explained in plain language, making it easy to understand. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Brian E. Smith.

A Practical Guide to Building High-Performance Computing Clusters:using Diskless Remote Boot Linux Tsung-Lung Li
Build a voice-controlled virtual assistant using speech-to-text engines, text-to-speech engines, and conversation modules. This book shows you how to program the virtual assistant to gather data from the internet (weather data, data from Wikipedia, data mining); play music; and take notes. Each chapter covers building a mini project/module to make the virtual assistant better. Youll develop the software on Linux or OS X before transferring it to your Raspberry Pi, ready for deploying in your own home-automation or Internet of Things applications. Building a Virtual Assistant for Raspberry Pi walks you through various STTs and TTSs and the implementation of these components with the help of Python. After that you will start implementing logic for handling user queries and commands, so that the user can have conversations with Melissa. You will then work to improve logic handling to detect what the user wants Melissa to do. You will also work on building some useful applications/modules for Melissa, which will allow you to gain interesting information from Melissa such as the time, weather information, and data from Wikipedia. You will develop a music playing application as well as a note taking application for Melissa, laying the foundations for how Melissa can be further extended. Finally, you will learn how to deploy this software to your Raspberry Pi and how you can further scale Melissa to make her more intelligent, interactive and how you can use her in other projects such as home automation as well. What Youll Learn Design the workflow and discover the concepts of building a voice controlled assistant Develop modules for having conversations with the assistant Enable the assistant to retrieve information from the internet Build utilities like a music player and a note taking application for the virtual assistant Integrate this software with a Raspberry Pi Who This Book Is For This book is for anyone who has built a home automation project with Raspberry Pi and now want to enhance it by making it voice-controlled.
