It doesn’t matter if you’re working with Windows or Linux operating system: taking a good command line tutorial is something every programmer and system administrator should do. Using the terminal gives you greater control and more options, thus making you more flexible and able to deal with a broader set of tasks on hand. In addition to that, it’s faster, uses less RAM than other interfaces, and doesn’t care about the quality of your monitor one bit.
Fettah Ben has been working as a system administrator for over a decade. He knows perfectly well how to use command line the right way – in this 4-hour command line crash course, he will share his knowledge with you too!
Learn command prompts from scratch!
It’s true: we’re living in a world of graphical user interfaces, drag-and-drops, and a multitude of other tools that simplify using technologies to the maximum. However, most programmers will agree you need to understand how to use the command line, which was created back when the only way to call a specific command was by typing.
In this command line tutorial, you will learn all about the command line interface (CLI) and its elements: command line, shell, and terminal window. Fettah Ben will introduce you to the basics file and system navigation and administration in both Linux and Windows:
- You will get to know the terminal and understand the benefits of using it in your daily work
- You will find out all there is to know about shell scripts and the ways to write them yourself
- Last but not least, you will learn command prompts by reviewing syntax patterns. There’s no use in knowing the commands if you’re not writing them properly, right?
Completing this command line tutorial will provide you with enough knowledge to start working on your own server administration projects on Windows or Linux terminals.
