Linux Operating System Essentials
Discover the world’s most popular open source operating system
From smartphones and servers, to supercomputers and submarines, Linux powers an incredible amount of today’s computer technology.
Improve your employability and transferable skills with this two-week course, delivering a working knowledge of Linux operations.
Learn how to create a Linux container using Docker
Starting from scratch, you’ll learn how to set up Linux and be introduced to key terminology including shell, terminal, and command.
Equipped with this foundational knowledge, you’ll move on to investigating processes in Linux, including data streams and piping, learning how data moves from one process to another.
Using these skills, you’ll be able to monitor and manage processes within your operating system, identifying and addressing any issues.
