Learn about the command line

Do you want to get up and running with Linux as fast as possible? That's how I roll! I don't want people to sit around watching boring tutorials for hours and hours, I believe in a fast and easy approach.

Linux is not learned in tutorials, you learn it by doing. So I teach people the basics and get them on their way to start actually using Linux on a daily basis. Fast, short and easy is my motto.

Tutorials who takes hours on end get very deep into the subject, and learning in a video format is easy for most people. But I believe in learning people the basics and teaching then to become independent in their craft. When you are working on Linux machines, the most essential tools will come up 80% of the time, the rest is experience and repetition. In this course I focus on those essentials and I try to get you working with Linux asap!

In this course you will learn how to:

  • Install Linux

  • Install and manage software

  • Using the terminal

  • Navigating through the files and directories

  • Learn about the Linux filesystem

  • Using command line text editors

  • Command piping and redirection

  • Shell variables

  • Install VSCode for writing our bash script

  • Write a basic Linux script

Overall, it was good, but he could've gone a bit deeper and explain (in a simple manner) more about those things that he wrote in the terminal. Some of them can be Googled easily, but some can't.

I enjoyed it. It was short and informal which is what I expected. This is a very good beginner's course.

I'm a linux beginner. I took this course expecting to find an introduction with examples and maybe some exercises (as I do find in other coding courses), but there weren't. Good point: The teacher is easygoing.

Very practical course, very nice for me since I hadn't even seen the interface previously. Now I have an idea of Linux. Thank you !!
