The interactive labs made learning the material more memorable. I enjoyed applying what I had Iearned, as what I read began to make more sense in my mind when working in terminal labs.

Outstanding in all respects, videos and text were super clear and simple enough for anyone to understand. The content was interesting and relevant without being too complicated.

Thank you for this course and training. This has professionally helped in my routine tasks at at&t vm machines to test 5g Networks.

The content was designed in a very nice way, it was like a father teaching a son how to walk. Baby step by baby step.

For me it was a very informative introduction to Linux. I had been a little familiar win IBM AIX, and this course helped explain a whole bunch of things for me. Thank you very much!

Documentation approach to learning about Linux is the first highlight of this course. The second thing I liked about this course was that it focused on bite-sized learning, by breaking down the complex topics in fundamental concepts, which was easy to understand from a beginner point of view. The third thing that I liked about this course was the Lab Practices and Try-it-Yourself sections, where the students can try out Linux commands, and become comfortable with them. Overall, I am fully satisfied with this course, and I would recommend it to anybody who is curious to learn about Linux.

The course provided a great overview of key concepts of a Linux operating system, and some more. With the knowledge gained from this course I can now streamline my development workflow by writing scripts, and exploring Automation further.

It is interactive. The videos are a great way to learn. The demos are amazing to follow; it makes the learning so easy. The length of each section is adequate. This course has really changed my perception about Linux, I am in love with it now.

It answered a lot of questions I had about Linux syntax. I took this to improve my abilities to edit technical documents, so I could identify typos better.

The thoroughness and breadth of information covered in this course is fantastic. It is well organized and detailed. It is not half-hearted, gives a good taste of Linux features and possibilities, and has definitely set me up to learn and explore more if I wish to. I also fell confident adding Linux familiarity to my resume.
Oct 2021
Unlike other beginner level courses, it gets very real. There was also stuff and commands which I didn't know, even though I'm working with Linux, which was a nice surprise to me!

Information was precise and straight to the point. I'm a newbie using Linux systems, and I've learned a few things on my own, but this course took it to a whole new level, thank you!

I like how it explains everything in general, so that we can choose a better path for ourselves later in order to learn in depth. The try-it on your own was the best part of the course.
Jul 2021
The best Linux introduction course I have done.

The content is really amazing. The detailed explanation helped me a lot.

Even though I've been a Linux user for many years, I still enjoyed this course because it's a great overview. Also, obviously not everyone does everything the same way. I'm considering myself as an experienced Linux user, but still I learned a few things or a few tricks here and there, (re)discovering commands I don't or rarely use, but that can still be useful.

I'm a Linux user with a lot of experience, but this course showed me a lot of new commands, very useful.
