Course Description
This course is designed specifically to introduce both new and experienced professional network engineers to the Linux operating system and environment. The course begins with a comprehensive overview of Linux and quickly dives into the fundamentals of the CLI with real-world examples that demonstrate critical Linux concepts like the Bash shell interactive user interface, utilities, and the hierarchical Linux file system structure. With that solid foundation established, we progress to system and file security, user interface customization with the Bash shell, file editing, and system and network administration tasks, and take a brief look at the power of Bash shell scripting and how it can be leveraged from a network administrator perspective. This course will fully prepare attendees to continue on to the Shell Scripting Fundamentals for Network Engineers course.
