Since its conception in 1991 by Linus Torvalds, Linux has left an indelible mark on the technological landscape, known for its versatility and ability to adapt to various environments.

In its 30 years of existence, this open-source operating system has become a crucial element in the development of solutions, from supercomputers to the Internet of Things. Its impact is evident in the growing number of manufacturers choosing to preinstall Linux on their devices.

The Spanish version of the Introduction to Linux course, a result of collaboration between UPV and the Linux Foundation, aims to eliminate language barriers for Spanish speakers interested in delving into the fascinating world of open source.

This course, originally available in English on the edX platform, now stands as an opportunity for those wishing to learn about Linux.


Clyde Seepersad, General Manager of Training and Certification at the Linux Foundation, expressed his enthusiasm:

“We strive to make quality open-source training accessible to anyone who desires it, anywhere and anytime. The partnership with UPV will enable countless Spanish speakers around the world to start their journey into the open-source world by learning Linux.”

No prior knowledge of Linux is required, and participants are estimated to commit 5-7 hours per week.

Upon completion of the training, students gain practical knowledge of Linux, covering topics such as its main distributions, system configurations, graphical interface, basic operations, and common applications.

With this initiative, UPV and the Linux Foundation aim to overcome language barriers and facilitate access to Linux knowledge for a broader audience in the Spanish-speaking world.
