Linux is a free open-source operating system invented by Linux Torvalds and developed by a community of developers worldwide. Linux is based on UNIX and has been ported to every platform in use today including PC, Mac, Sparc and ARM and is the base operating system behind Arduino and Android. It is released under the GNU public license and can be copied and reused freely.
TOG will be offering a six week introductory course to the Linux Command Line on Monday nights starting in January. This course assumes no previous programming experience.
This course will teach you how to administer your Linux system from the command line. It will not cover installing Linux nor will it cover Gnome or KDE functionality. Instead, we will be using VirtualBox and each student will download a virtual hard drive with the latest Debian preinstalled and configured for the course.
|When:||Mondays Jan 6th – Feb 10th 2014.|
|Time:||7:00 – 10:00pm (with 30 min break)|
