Hello and welcome to the Linux Mastery Course where you are going to master the Linux command line in a project-based and unforgettable way.
This course has been expertly crafted to make sure that you rapidly improve your Linux skills, Turbocharge your productivity and Boost your career with no time wasting and no useless fluff.
- Topic 1) Mastering the Linux Terminal
Understand the How AND Why of the Linux Command Line
If you want true mastery, it’s not enough to learn how to do something. You need to understand why.
In this section, you will learn what Linux commands are, and how they are structured so that you can get valuable insight into how working with the Linux command line works, rather than just memorising command after command after command like other Linux courses will make you do.
You will learn important concepts such as:
- The difference between the Linux terminal and the shell
- Command Input and Output
- Data Redirection.
- Connecting Linux Commands together to Build Sophisticated Data Pipelines.
And so many other useful concepts that will give you the fundamental skills to confidently use the command line to accomplish anything you want.
This course also focuses on empowering you to be an independent learner of the Linux operating system so you will also learn how to use the Linux Manual.
Knowing how to use the Linux manual will give you the independence to do what you want to do, rather than just what other people have shown you.
- Topic 2) Mastering the Linux File System
Increase Productivity by Working with Files from the Linux Command Line
Once you’ve become a master of the Linux terminal and understood the critical concepts behind what you’re doing, you will then move on to gain mastery over the Linux File System.
Working with Files is what we do 99% of the time when we work with computers and in this section you will learn how to navigate the file system from the command line and perform a whole bunch of tasks with files and folders such as:
- How to Create files and folders in Linux
- How to Delete files and folders in Linux
- How to Copy and paste files and folders in Linux.
- How to Move and Rename files and folders in Linux.
- How to Find files and Sort data in Linux.
- How to Backup and Compress files and folders in Linux.
But you’ll do it all from the Linux command line!
You will also learn some productivity tips to squeeze every bit of juice out of your command line work as well as getting a tour of the Linux file system so that you feel right at home 🙂
- Topic 3) Mastering Task Automation and Scheduling
Save time by automating the boring stuff!
Once you’ve mastered the Linux file system, we will turn our attention to task automation and scheduling.
Now, if you’re the kind of person who loves to automate tasks and free up your spare time, you will LOVE this section!
We will cover how to write bash scripts and automate them using a special scheduling program called cron so that you can automate the boring stuff and increase your productivity.
- Topic 4) Mastering Package Managers and Software Repositories
Discover new tools and possibilities by exploring Open Source Software.
Then in the Final section of the course, we will turn our attention to Linux software management.
One great thing about Linux is that it is an open source operating system that is being contributed to by millions and millions of people around the world.
In this section of the course you will gain the independence to search through this enormous body of software for cool new tools that do what you want, and learn how to install and manage that software all from the Linux command line.
You will also learn how to access source code and customise programs, as well as understand the subtle differences between free and open source software.
