Course description

Introduction to Unix / Linux Fundamentals with Shell Scripting

Introduction to UNIX/Linux Fundamentals with Shell Scripting is a comprehensive, hands on course that provides training on standard UNIX/Linux commands and utilities used for day to day tasks including file manipulation, program execution and control, and effective use of the shell and desktop environments. The course presents the concepts necessary to understand the way UNIX works as well as the system's most commonly used commands. Data manipulation utilities and shell syntax for synthesizing command pipelines are emphasized.

Bourne shell, Bash shell and Korn shell programming techniques are introduced so students will be able to read and modify existing shell scripts as well as create their own. Desktop environments are also introduced from a user's perspective, including common window managers, Open Office utilities and an introduction to configuration tools. Comprehensive hands on exercises are integrated throughout to reinforce learning and develop real competency.

Who should attend?

This is an introductory-level course, designed for users who wish to work with Linux and Shell to perform day to day tasks including file manipulation, program execution and control, and effective use of the shell and desktop environments. Incoming attendees should be technically oriented and comfortable using a system command line.
