Fundamentals of Linux (LFS102)

Overview:
This hands-on four-day course explores the various tools and techniques commonly used by Linux programmers, system administrators and end users to achieve their day-to-day work in a Linux environment. Upon completion of this training you should have a good working knowledge of Linux, from both a graphical and command line perspective, allowing you to easily navigate through any of the three major Linux distributions.

Audience:
This class is designed for people who have little or no prior experience with Linux or Unix. System administrators, developers, architects, decision makers or new Linux users can all benefit from the content covered in this class, especially if they are looking to work with more involved topics such as Linux system administration, network management and enterprise system architecture.

Pre Requisites:
We minimally expect students to have prior exposure to a computer running an operating system such as Apple or Windows. Experience using the basic features of a typical PC system, such as handling a mouse and a keyboard, is also assumed by instructors teaching Introduction to Linux.
