About This Class

The command line is an incredibly useful tool for developers and regular computer users. If you want to get into Ruby on Rails, Django, Unix customization and so much more, learning the command line will help you immensely. Many technologies and frameworks rely on command line inputs. This course will get you up and be running with the command line quickly.

In this course Learn The Command Line: Everything You Need To Know you will quickly learn and become familiar with many essential UNIX commands. We will go over everything from opening up the command line to making our very own commands for the command line. This command line course is mainly for Linux users but Mac users are welcome to join (just realize not everything may work).

For beginners, the command line may seem overly complex and it may be hard to sit down and learn it. This course will teach you how to use the command line and skip the boring, unnecessary stuff that you may never use. However, this course gives an excellent command line foundation, so if you want to learn more, you can do so easily on your own.

I used to be very intimidated by the command line. I designed this course for people like me who may be struggling to figure out all of the commands. This course would've been perfect for me 2 years ago.

So what are you waiting for, now is the best time to learn the command line. Don't procrastinate it any further.
And if you aren't satisfied with this course, just remember you have a 30-day money back guarantee.
Thank you so much for showing interest in this command line course, and I hope to see you soon!
