Linux Basics (free/public/self-paced)
West Michigan Center for Arts+Technology (WMCAT)
Linux Basics (NDG Linux Unhatched) allows students to wade into the shallow end of Linux, the back-end operating system used by global titans such as Facebook, Google, Microsoft, NASA, Tesla, Amazon and more. Course participants walk away with a clear understanding of whether Linux is for them or not, without having to commit to more than 8 total hours of self-paced learning. To ensure you don’t get stuck, you’ll be guided step-by-step through a series of hands-on virtual machine activities. The course aligns well with the Linux exam objectives found on the CompTIA A+ Certification. After this course, we suggest taking either NDG Linux Essentials or NDG Linux I.
You'll learn these core skills:
- Basic installation and configuration of Linux software.
- Understand the basics of the Linux Command Line Interface (CLI).
- Interact and become familiar with the Linux virtual machine.
- Determine if Linux is for you or not.
