Linux Fundamentals

This 5 day class is a challenging course that focuses on the fundamental tools and concepts of Linux and Unix. Students gain proficiency using the command line. Beginners develop a solid foundation in Unix, while advanced users discover patterns and fill in gaps in their knowledge. Like all of our courses, the course material is designed to provide extensive hands-on experience. Topics include: basic file manipulation; basic and advanced filesystem features; I/O redirection and pipes; text
manipulation and regular expressions; managing jobs and processes; vi, the
standard Unix editor; automating tasks with shell scripts; managing software;
secure remote administration; and more.


Students should be comfortable with computers. No
familiarity with Linux or other Unix operating systems is required.
