Description

This course is suitable for beginner to advanced levels/students.

The course aims to prepare the student very well for some of the most common interview questions for Linux related jobs/careers.

The course is highly recommended for Linux beginners, and should help the student to start using Linux very quickly.

Via detailed answers, clear explanations and engaging practical examples using the Linux BASH shell terminal, the student should be able to do extremely well during interview questions, and successfully secure that job.

Linux version used for this course is Ubuntu Linux 18.04, and a live dvd version is used via a virtual machine, so that the student can actually see the Linux desktop while listening to the lectures and following the practical examples.

Optional, but recommended:

If you don't already have access to a Linux OS, then you can install Linux on your computer either directly, or via a virtual machine(recommended).

On Windows you can install VirtualBox, and then install Linux on there. Same for Mac OS.

I have included the relevant download links for you under the resources section.

(If you need assistance with installing Linux, you are welcome to message me.)

thanks
