In this course, you will learn the basics of using a Linux-based system. Topics covered include navigating the filesystem, working with files and directories, file permissions, the vi text editor, the Bash shell, processes, and ways to find help in the open-source community.
Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:
- Navigate the filesystem.
- Manipulate files and directories.
- Understand and change filesystem permissions.
- Create and edit text files using vi.
- Use many of Bash’s powerful built-in features such as pipes and redirects.
