Linux & The Bash Shell

Though we may not be consciously aware, Linux is powering the world around us. From supercomputers, to smartphones, to automobiles; Linux is more often found "under the hood". It's open source nature has lead to hundreds of distributions and wide adaptation throughout the industry. This course aims to explore how to work in the Linux environment. In order to do that we will learn how to use the Bash Shell. Bash is a command line and shell for Unix operating systems. We use bash to execute commands on a machine, as opposed to using a graphical interface to which most of us are accustomed. We will learn the fundamentals of bash as we explore the Linux OS.

This class will be hosted via Zoom. You will receive an email with the Zoom link a day before the class. Attendance will be taken and the session will be recorded.
