This is a very friendly step-by-step guide to Unix for beginners, it helps to build a solid foundation, and the exercises are designed to explore more about what has been introduced in the course.
A wonderful course! Answered so many questions I had and gave me a solid background in Git, Bash, makefiles, and working from the cloud. I will definitely be using these skills in my job search!

It was very good course designed for beginner in Unix. Thanks a lot for this. I was expecting a good hands on assignment at each week. The course could be much better if it would have included some more details in all the topics covered.

Really interesting course and a good introduction to shell programming. I did find the learning curve was a little uneven between weeks (1 and 2 were took almost no time, but some quirks in week 3 made it take much longer).

Fantastic book for beginners as well as people who haven't worked on Unix for a long time. Brush up and get going. Very lucid presentation ; gitHub lessons were an additional plus

A very good course!
Before taking this course, I was a little worried to work with Linux. But now I really feel more comfortable with it.
Thanks to the instructor for his efforts.

I could not get the connection with digitalocean, becasue the page requested me to pay. I suggest to use a server propietary of coursera only for courses.

I learn so many new commands from this course.
and one more important thing is basic standard skeleton of bash programming as well as git-hub basic.

It's very simple bash (my attention part!) tutorials, and I suggest the video teaching is much better than boring plain text.

I enjoyed the course. However, I would have enjoyed still more, if there were demos using videos rather than mere texts.
A great course that is easy to understand and implement it. A good start for beginners with little experience.
By Sai K G B•
Could have been little crisp and more live demos if possible...Overall a very good course for the beginners

The Bash Programming Sections Could Have Been More Detailed.
Everything Else Is All Right.

Simple and clear materials for self-learning basic Unix and Bash programming.
Material was great. However, last assignment instructions were not clear.
