Unix/Linux Introduction

Linux is everywhere, and it's difficult. Make sure you know it.

Linux is almost the only operating system used on both small devices (IoT), and very large computers. Interested in Cyber Security? The only tools professionals ever use for Penetration Testing all run on Linux (Kali, Parrot).

Every year, Microsoft incorporates more Linux into their offerings. Windows 10 can natively run many Linux apps (via Windows Subsystem for Linux). .NET applications are now expected to also work on Linux machines (via Docker containers). So even if you're a Microsoft kind of guy (Admin or Dev), you'll need solid Linux skills. Linux is predominantly command-line driven, with awkward and often obscure commands. Consequently, it's super easy to make mistakes. This course will teach you what you need to know to avoid mistakes and learn to love Linux. Our Linux courses are always delivered on a fully up-to-date version of Linux (usually CentOS), but also always cover the differences between the major Linux distros (Red Hat Enterprise RHEL, Fedora, Debian, Ubuntu, Kali, Mint, SUSE etc.)
