The Open Source Software Development, Linux and Git Specialization will give you a strong foundation for working comfortably and productively in open source development communities. By completing the Specialization, you’ll have a better understanding of the Linux environment, as well as methods and tools required to successfully use it, and you’ll know how to use Git, the distributed version control system.
Upon completion of this Specialization, you will receive a certificate from Coursera as well as a digital badge from The Linux Foundation recognizing your proficiency in open source software development, Linux environment and Git. Use your verified digital badge to promote your achievement online, and access job insights related to your new skills.
In all The Linux Foundation courses (in any format) we put a heavy emphasis on learning by doing, and aim for a 50/50 balance between lecture and working on lab exercises. Courses 2, 3 and 4 include numerous lab exercises that give you the opportunity to work in a Linux environment, using the methods and tools presented in lectures.
