About this project

Cover of the Debian Administrator's Handbook (jessie version)Written by two Debian developers — Raphaël Hertzog and Roland Mas — the Debian Administrator's Handbook started as a translation of their French best-seller known as Cahier de l'admin Debian (published by Eyrolles). It's a fantastic resource for all users of a Debian-based distribution. Accessible to all, this book teaches the essentials to anyone who wants to become an effective and independent Debian GNU/Linux administrator.

Living up to their free software ideals, the book is freely available (that is under the terms of a license compatible with the Debian Free Software Guidelines of course).

We hope that you will enjoy the book (like others did):

  1. Read it online.
  2. Get the book (as paperback or as ebook).
  3. Download the sources and contribute.
