Default Going from "good" to "expert"

I've been playing with Linux for roughly 12 years. I feel I'm "good"
at it, but I lack "real advanced skills".

I've completely skipped the whole SELinux-wave. I would have been
forced to learn it, but my co-workers and employers were too
intimidated by it, so I never bothered. I also skipped really trying
to understand SystemTap, and that's another (perhaps) advanced skill,
that would make me truly a "one of a kind" based on what I know my
immediate co-workers know about Linux.

Anyone have any good tips/references to how to take my skills to the
next level? I've seen a few half-decent mini-books like "Vmware
interview questions" that may seem stupid, but actually do provide a
few things that I think I need to brush up on.

Marco,
Consider the RHCSA or RHCE. Skipping such objectives as selinux isn't
an option if you want to master topics and become certified.

My employer won't pay... Does being an RHCE from 2002 count? ;-)

Hello Marco,

>From my point of view the best way to improve your Linux skills is needing
them to fix a problem.

Probably facing problems is the best way to improve your skills. You get
forced to research and to go deeper. If you don't find that challenge at
work, you can probably try to get a small server (either at your home or a
dedicated remote one) and try to build cool things there - from networking
stuff to kernel stuff.

I am sure you'll face problems and would get forced to learn new skills,
script stuff etc. And on top of that...you'll have fun!
Get ready to try to look for stuff on Google and finding unanswered posts -
you won't find that fun though :-)

Good luck!
Manuel.

Marco,

Consider to take the LPI trainings and exams.
This way is cheaper then red hat way.

Included in lpi3 is selinux.

Met vriendelijke groet / kind regards,
