In Detail

In this course, we start from scratch. So we will immediately start with the command line! We will explain everything through commands and won't bore you with dull slides. In fact, there isn't a single slide in this course!

If you have never worked with Linux before (or installed it), this course will show you how to set it up in a Virtual Machine with minimal effort. If you already have Linux or Mac, you can use that too. Then, we will start from zero and get you up to the level of expert without dumping too many commands on you. We aim to give you a feel for the command line so that you are in the position to understand its underlying philosophy and use it to your advantage.

This course is for you if you are new to the Linux Command Line but want to learn it without headaches. If you are comfortable with the command line, you can learn a lot of different skills very quickly and with minimal hassle. After taking this course, you will be all set to work with highly useful concepts such as Linux System Administration, setting up architectures for Machine Learning and Deep Learning, working with systems that enable VoIP, and many many more.
