What's in this Course?

Follow along and learn as Greg Aker covers the basic command line commands and information you need to know.

We’ll start off by getting familiar with the terminal itself; that plain, simple, yet powerful tool that exists, hidden away, on our computers. After that we’ll cover the following:

  • how to create and manipulate files
  • copying and moving files around our file system
  • use grep and find to search files and contents of files
  • archive files with tar, zip, and gzip
  • review permissions, how to set them, and how to change ownership of files and directories
  • connect to remote servers from the command line using wget, curl, rsync, and ssh
  • review the System Path and how the operating system knows where to find applications to run
  • create aliases for faster command execution
  • talk about next steps so you can learn even more about the command line.

The course contains the following:

  • 11 videos covering about an hour of learning
  • additional resources for more learning
