This course is for you if you are new to the Linux Command Line but want to learn it
without all the headaches
. Linux command line is a cross-cutting skill. If you are comfortable with the command line, you can learn a lot of different skills very quickly and with minimal hassle. After taking this course, you will be all set to work with
highly useful concepts such as
Linux System Administration
, setting up architectures for
Machine Learning and Deep Learning
, work with systems that enable
and many many more areas.
In this course, we will
start from scratch
. This is a very applied course, so we will immediately start with the command line! We will
explain everything through the commands
and not bore you with dull slides. In fact,
there isn't a single slide in this course
If you have never worked with Linux before (or installed it), this course will show you how to set it up in a Virtual Machine with minimal effort. If you already have Linux or Mac, you can use that too. Then, we will start from zero and get you up to the level of expert
without dumping too many commands on you
We take a
case study-based approach
and motivate why we need the commands we're learning. If there is a command that is typically taught in courses but isn't used too often, we skip it so that you
learn only the stuff that will be useful to you
In this course, we aim to give you the feel of the
rhythm behind the command line
so that you are in the position to understand the philosophy behind the command line and use it to your advantage. Through this approach, we can cover the whole spectrum in
less than 3 hours
There is also a
real-time chat system
in place for students who enroll in this course. With a free signup, you get access to real-time chat with myself and fellow students who are working to complete this course (or have completed the course before you). We plan on creating this network of like-minded experts who can help each other out and
collaborate on exciting ideas

What will I learn?
of the command line
Working with
files and directories
from the command line (and
understand why
you would want to do that in the first place)
Applying the commands to
solve real problems
instead of made-up issues
Understand how very simple and easy-to-understand commands work together to solve much bigger and important problems
Know keyboard shortcuts that will save you a lot of time and effort when working with the command line
Perform operations that simply cannot be done in the Graphical User Interfaces
Follow a case study that shows how the command line can be used to
download a complete YouTube playlist
(and learn quite a few commands along the way)
Work with the
extremely powerful vi editor
and understand why people are so crazy about it (and how it can be useful to you)
Learn how the professionals make their
command lines look cool
(and again, learn a few commands along the way)
