Since he is experienced in this bussines, i am sure it wont be hard for him to create a scenario like this maybe more detailed, to help us understanding what might that job looks like in the real world and PRACTICE the stuff we learnd in parralel to real actions.

I just started some real world projects with Linux after this great course, I was new to Linux and in just a month I am on the command line always playing.

Great course with examples applicable to real world.

The material presented is good and applicable to the real world.

Poor examples not connected with real world tasks.

He did tried, and course gives you some useful knowledge, but very basic and not connected with real world examples, only touching the surface.

Really it's useful for real world and for beginner's as well.

I found it provided a real world practical flavor on top of the course material making it easier to understand what IT administration is about.

command line in 9 reviews

I started learning about linux years ago but, never got the hang of the command line.

I had trouble finding an engaging introductory linux course (apart from some excellent command line ones) and this course seems to fill in the gap.

Great course for beginners in the linux command line like me.

I'm at ease at the command line, and just looked for a Linux Course which explains me everything i needed to know.

Thanks also for your documantaion I started learning about linux years ago but, never got the hang of the command line.
