"Using FreeBSD as a File Server With ZFS" Online Course has been fully uploaded. It's full of theoretical materials, videos, assignments and a final test to check your knowledge. After completing all assignemnts and the final test, you will recieve a certificate.
For those of you who would only like to read up, practice on your own, or fill the knowledge gaps, we decided to prepare Using FreeBSD as a File Server With ZFS eBook. It is still paid, but it only contains theoretical materials, so it's cheaper than the course itself. It's a great opportunity to those of you who have been thinking about taking the course, but aren't sure.
This e-book will be added to the course as a free download, for those of you who already participate in the course. All materials here were written by our Instructor, Carlos Antonio Neira Bustos.
