    So ... awkward ... this is primarily managed and discussed on Reddit. It has its own stand-alone website (which I linked, above), plus a GitHub repo, but to really participate, you kind of need to be in the associated subreddit (r/linuxupskillchallenge).

    That said, this sounds like a cool guided tutorial/refresher for low-to-moderate level Linux sysadmin/webadmin skill building (Day 0 is creating a Cloud-based VPS, Day 1 is how to use ssh, etc). I already maintain multiple VPSes and self-host my own (private) blog, Nextcloud server and Matrix server ... and I feel like roughly half of this course is either new to me, or I'm rusty enough that I could use the refresher.

    I'm doing this tutorial this month (June). Any other takers?

      Thanks for bringing this up, Eric_the_Cerise :) I am also following along with this, but I don't feel like logging into reddit to participate. Will it be too noisy if we create daily threads to share our progress on this event? Would weekly perhaps work better?

      As for my day 1, I actually went ahead and added the SSH key for login on day 0 (setup) since Digital Ocean offers that instead of a password-based login. So I ended up getting a little ahead and not having much to do today. But I'm looking forward to learning more sysadmin stuff! Specifically, I'm not so good with systemd yet or networking & sockets, so I'm hoping this event will touch on those topics.

    Echoing the thanks for posting from other users. I've been self hosting a home server of some kind since 2016, Ubuntu since 2017, so this looks to be a great series to fill in any knowledge gaps!
