Linus Torvalds initially created Linux for his own personal use, but after being released under GNU General Public License, it soon became widespread on supercomputers, servers and mainframe computers.

Android is built on top of the Linux kernel, so Linux literally dominates over a billion devices. On servers it is found as Redhat, on desktop systems as Ubuntu- in short, Linux is found everywhere.

This course will teach you the foundation of the Linux OS, kernel and the file system structure. We will then move on to the administration concepts, networking concepts, system services, Shell programming and service configuration. The security administration concepts will also be covered.

By the end of this course, you’ll be comfortable with any Linux distribution, adept at command line operations and advanced networking.

For a professional career in software programming, learning Linux is a must!
