TRAINING CENTER

Information Technology is in constant mutation: new technologies are developed and arrive on the market place everyday. Should you be the first or the last to deploy them, you have to be prepared. But to what? Prepared to this new technology which will be obsolete in 6 months or prepare its adaptation to future changes. Open Source technologies are technologies where training is incremental: You still use what you have learnt and your expertise keeps increasing with your experience. You have projects and you want them to succeed. Does your team lack some skills to realize them? Will you be able to operate once the project has been realized? For a development, migration or implementation project, the expertise level of your team is the key. Would it be profitable if you could benefit from the feedbacks of similar projects? It would be like if you have already done the project before.

OUR OFFER Savoir-faire Linux provides a training center at the leading edge of Open Source technologies. Our relationship with the community allows us to transfer you the last innovations in a pleasant learning environment easing experimentation. More than training, our courses generate a know-how transfer allowing you to approach current and future technologies with serenity and to have the required distance to get the most out of them.
