Title: Best place to learn about distros
Post by: Adam Dumbacher on January 25, 2016, 01:37:17 pm
I'm looking for resources to learn about distros and the best way to get an idea for what I need.  I know that I need to talk to someone about it before I order anything and will need help and training on configuring and setting it up correctly.  Right now, I'm looking to learn how to size something for my audio system that will be growing and eventually add lighting too.  Along with that, how can I make something work for my amp racks when a venue doesn't have anything but a few circuits on Edisons?

Thanks,
Adam

Richard Cadena's book (http://www.entertainmentelectricity.com) is very good, and the concepts are very well laid out.
