Python is used in a wide variety of settings. One popular use is as a language for carrying out a variety of system-administration tasks -- from carrying out bulk file operations to monitoring systems to provisioning new servers. In particular, many Unix administrators have started to use Python instead of the traditional  Unix shell. This course is aimed at system administrators who  want to be able to monitor and control their systems more easily using Python. The course assumes knowledge and the understanding of Unix/Linux based computers, and will provide system administrators with a set of Python-based tools that they can use to build administrative scripts and applications.
