SQL Server on Linux Fundamentals for DBAs

I've been working with SQL Server on Windows for well over a decade, but now it can run on Linux. I had to learn a lot of things to ramp up. Let me share those with you, so you can successfully manage SQL Server on Linux! In this session, I'll cover basic Linux commands, what to prep for installation, how to install, how to configure, and what you need to know to monitor and troubleshoot.
