This Linux command line foundation will help you with anything IT-related: web or software development, data science, machine learning, robotics, system administration, etc. This is the building block you need in order to go in any other direction. And there are many things that look fancy but are a waste of time, especially when you begin. No need to learn 150 commands to get started. You can go a long way with just a few and a good understanding.
This course starts with a step-by-step on how to install Ubuntu on a virtual machine, with a minimal and clean setup. Once you have your Linux OS ready to be used, you will directly jump in and learn how to navigate and understand the Linux file system, create and manage your own files and folders, write into files using a command-line text editor (Nano), change files and users’ permissions, install and update software, monitor Linux processes and computer resources, and remotely connect to a Linux machine using SSH.
On top of all that, you will also learn how to improve your efficiency with the terminal, using auto-completion, pipes, search tools, keyboard shortcuts, multi-terminal setup, and more.
You will also look at the best practices and start off on the right foot with the Linux command line.
By the end of the course, you will have mastered the basics of the Linux command line and be confident with using the Linux terminal for your daily tasks. Use this solid foundation on any Linux-based projects in the near future.
