  • To be honest, I knew a bit about bash commands when I started this course. I had, of course, picked up bit and pieces and was using them to save time while I was using linux. This course taught me a lot of more ways that I could use to make using a terminal easier. They teach the basic commands and it's quite fun.

    I'd recommend this class if:
    - you want to start using a Linux distro
    - you want to learn server programming
    - you are looking for ways to use the terminal easily.

    My only complaint is that the course was really short. I think they they could have taught a bit more instead of keeping it for their paid course.

    A simple and well-crafted course on bash. You can complete it in a day but it will give you an idea on the subject, if it were longer would not have been bad.
  • Andrea Migotto
    very basic and short course, serves as an introduction to the first and most common shell commands for somebody completely new to the subject
