Course Outline

Course Introduction and Overview provides an introduction to this course and the Bash shell environment.

Installation provides step-by-step instructions on how to setup Git for Windows and the Notepad++ text editor.

The real meat of the course is the Basic Commands section, where we step through many of the common Bash commands and uses. Towards the end, we start putting the commands together to build a simple Bash script, which we also execute.

Course Features

Presentations provide audio/video training of conceptual ideas. Since few like slide-ware presentations, slide-presentations are kept to a minimum.

Screencasts provide a video of the instructor’s computer system with any actions, commands, or screens displayed and narrated — this is the majority of the course.

Following the Basic Commands section, there is a downloadable reference of all the commands used in this course.

The quizzes reinforce the key concepts by testing your newly learned knowledge throughout the course.
