J003-Content-CheatsheetsWe got a lot of great responses on r/SysAdmin – Reddit to our Compendium of cheat sheets, quick reference cards and one-pages – and a few requests for more cheat sheets. And since we love to give our readers more of what they really want, here’s a follow up to our original post. These are the categories you asked for.

Python

Python is one of the most widely used general purpose programming languages. I just wished the creators had chosen a different name. Snakes; why did it have to be snakes? Here’s a set of some of the best Python cheat sheets.

MegaCLI

LSI MegaRAID controllers are both very popular, and very powerful. There’s a full command line interface language for them, and since you can find them in name-brand servers and whitebox workstations, with versions of the MegaCLI for Linux, DOS, Windows, and more, it’s good to have some grasp of the MegaCLI in case you need to configure your RAID setup.
