Introduction to Linux Beta

Welcome to the beta test for Introduction to Linux!

Why take this course?
In this introductory course on Linux, we’ll be learning about what Linux is exactly. We’ll learn about its history and different versions of Linux. We’ll teach you how to set up Linux Ubuntu on your computer, and guide you through exploring the pre-installed apps, how to install apps, the Linux file system, and the role of server applications. No introduction to Linux is complete without teaching the Linux shell, aka Bash! You will learn how to use text commands to navigate through a file system, view and change files, You’ll learn how to use Bash commands and write Bash scripts that allow you to automate tasks and power up what we can do in Linux. We’ll also show you how to define Linux users and how to set permissions for files. There are plenty of lessons, quizzes, and projects ahead, so let’s get started! Full course coming April 2022

To that end allow me to introduce @cyao42 who worked to create this course. They’re here to answer any questions you have.

As a reminder you can find an explanation of the process for beta testing here.

Is there a certificate of Completion?

There will be once the course leaves Beta, but not currently.
