UNIX and Linux: Fundamentals


You are probably familiar with the Microsoft Windows environment. However, you may now need to become comfortable with UNIX or Linux, perhaps because your organization is shifting to applications that specifically run on a UNIX or Linux platform. So, you need to get familiar with working in this type of operating system. In the Unix and Linux Fundamentals course, you will examine the overall structure of the UNIX and Linux environment, and use the command line interface (CLI) to perform basic tasks. These fundamental skills will help you work effectively with any version of Linux or UNIX.
