Linux is widely used as a development platform, and as the operating system for embedded systems. Whilst users of a desktop Linux installation may be able to run applications with limited knowledge of the operating system, a good working knowledge of the command line or shell will help you to make best use of Linux. It is also essential if you are working without a graphical desktop, for example in an embedded system.
Linux Fundamentals provides the engineer with a thorough introduction to using Linux from the command line. All the essential shell and basic operating system commands are taught, enabling you to start to utilise the power of the Linux operating system.
Linux Fundamentals is suitable for delegates with existing experience of the Windows operating system and for those who have used Linux or UNIX systems with a graphical desktop, or who have only a limited knowledge of the command line.
Workshops comprise approximately 50% of class time and are based around carefully designed exercises to reinforce and challenge the extent of learning.
