5+ Hours of Video Instruction
The Linux Command Line Interface (CLI) is a powerful tool for users, developers, and administrators. Quick changes to a system with no Graphical Interface such as many servers or some recovery tasks, can be accomplished with command line tools. Repetitive tasks such as file management and local access control changes can be dome more efficiently from the command line than through a point and click interface. Learning to use the Linux CLI also prepares for full automation with scripting tools.
Linux Command Line Complete Video Course introduces common utilities used at the Linux command line. While learning commands for specific tasks, you will obtain greater confidence navigating the Linux filesystem, understand how to locate and edit files, use Bash shell features for efficiency and automation, and be able to use built-in help for further exploration.
