This suave little chap is your comprehensive provider for professional Linux software development, training and services.

World-renowned Linux expert
The Urban Penguin is led by world-renowned Linux expert Andrew Mallett who is passionate about Open Source. Although it may feel as though time, money and the efficiency of your business are at stake when choosing your training provider; we offer cost-effective industry-leading business solutions which we believe is the best training in Linux you will find and your company needs – a win-win!
Although Andrew is a freelance IT instructor, author and consultant in the UK; his first love has and will always be Linux. He has been writing free video tutorials as TheUrbanPenguin since 2009 – you can find him on Youtube @theurbanpenguin and get training for free!
There are currently over 1000 videos available on Youtube starting with introductory training with the LPI (Linux Professional Institute) moving on through to more technically challenging how-to videos on iSCSI, HA and Virtualisation. As well as offering free training through these videos and notes, we also provide online training here at The Urban Penguin website.
Andrew holds RedHat, SUSE, LPI and CompTIA certifications, clearly demonstrating his knowledge. But, the best demonstration is to watch one of his videos and if you want to work with us direct – attend one of Andrew’s courses.
Online training costs to you are kept as low as possible while small classes mean you can really participate and get fully acquainted with all aspects of learning the system administration. This includes Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Ubuntu and DevOps; a cloud-based operating system that links all your internet-connected technology or things! Being well acquainted and qualified in many Linux distributions and Unix systems; Andrew is more than capable of explaining the differences and getting you up to speed with managing all flavours of Linux, where you will also have access to Andrew’s machines for literally hands-on practice!
