Unix and Bash for Beginners Specialization


This specialization is intended for people without technical experience who seek to develop bash scripting skills and learn about Unix tools that will allow them to perform basic system administrator tasks on Linux and other Unix-based systems. In these four courses, you will cover everything from navigating the system on the command line, to scripting and automating tasks, to networking and containers. These topics will help prepare you to comfortably navigate and troubleshoot Unix-based systems and automate tasks on more complex systems.

Learners will practice a variety of practical skills including building helpful scripts that can speed up everyday tasks and creating git repositories to track script versions. Later projects involve editing network configuration files for specific use cases.
