Overview

We have built this course for beginners who have no experience with the Linux system and the command-line interface.

In this course, you'll learn the basics of the command line interface of a Linux server: the terminal and shell (GNU Bash). This course includes an introduction to files and directories in the Linux filesystem.



Why Take This Course?

Most servers on the Internet today run on Linux or other Unix-like systems. Installing, configuring, and troubleshooting often relies on the command line interface. This, accordingly, is foundational web knowledge, and in fact many of our intermediate and advanced courses rely on a familiarity with the command-line interface to run servers, work with version control systems and more.

Syllabus

Lesson 1: Get Into the Shell

In this lesson, you'll learn about the terminal user interface and how you can interact with a Linux server using shell commands.

Lesson 2: Shell Commands

There are different kinds of shell commands that work with the terminal in different ways. This lesson also covers the use of the Linux manual (manpages) to expand your knowledge of shell commands.

Lesson 3: The Linux Filesystem

Working with files and directories is a big part of using the shell. In this lesson you'll learn basic commands for interacting with the filesystem.

Andrea completed this course, spending 2 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be very easy.
way too easy, it only teaches you the very basics, it's said to be 4.5 hours long but really in one hour you will finish it with no rush
