Linux is a popular operating system that is based on the Unix operating system. It has many distributions which have different interfaces for installing software, different user interfaces, and so on. One thing all of the ‘distros’ have in common is that they all have a command line interface, or terminal. In fact, sometimes there is no user interface except the terminal itself. A Linux server running a web application on AWS, for example, may only contain the software required to run the application, and no GUI ‘window’ system at all. It is crucial to learn the Linux command line if you are going to be a productive Linux user and/or administer a Linux server. In this course, you will use Linux commands to navigate Linux directories, search for files, search for patterns, create files and directories, and remove files and directories. Note: This course works best for learners who are based in the North America region. We’re currently working on providing the same experience in other regions.
Learners should be familiar with using a PC Computer from a GUI perspective. This includes a basic understanding of what folders and files are.
In a video that plays in a split-screen with your work area, your instructor will walk you through these steps:
Display the home directory from a terminal.
List files and directories using ls.
Use the cd command to change directories.
Use touch, copy, mkdir, and rm to Create and Remove Files and Directories.
Search for Files using find, Search for patterns using grep.

good way to get a basic understanding of linux navigation, having the terminal side by side with the course is helpful. The simulator will move to the side on its own but is easy to open back up.
This course contains all basic knowledge about the Linux commands. I get clear all my little difficulty from this course.\n\nThanks!!!
Very good introduction and the hands on lab makes it a worthwhile experience. Would love to see a more advanced course down the road.
it was really great learning about new thing and the way they explained was great and even interesting. i really enjoyed the classes
