RE: O'Reilly School of Technology

From: Matt Keys 
------------------------------------------------------
I'm more interested in practical application than I am a cert. If you're
serious about being a mentor/teacher please let me know. I'd love to become
fluent in python or perl to expand my skillset for support of cloud
services/infrastructure/sysadmin sectors. From what I've seen and read about
products I'm interested in python looks to be more widely used. I'm leaning
towards it because of that and it seems to be easier to learn. I'm just not
sure how valid that thought process is though as I'm usually
consuming/troubleshooting rather than developing/customizing.

If you just want to learn python, I'll teach you python for $318 dollars. If
you want certification then I can't help you.

to talk to someone who's been through one to get their opinion on it.
There's a guy at work who went through a few of the the web programming
courses but didn't finish up. He wasn't all that impressed.
