Becoming Linux Expert Series-Install Linux Operating System

Enroll for Free

This is the first course in the series of many courses which I will be doing on Linux Operating system. There are many OS available but we will see that why we choose Linux.

Linux uses the GNU General Public License (GPL) which is free. It is free as well as open source, meaning that it gives the freedoms to use, study, share (copy), and modify the software. Linux follows POSIX standards specified by the IEEE for maintaining compatibility between operating systems such as Unix and other variants.
We will dive deep in Linux in the other detailed courses like:
1. Shell script – Here, we will learn about shells like sh, bash etc, editors like vi, emacs etc shell commands etc.
2. Understanding Linux Kernel and writing device drivers.
3. Real Time Operating Systems (RTOS)
4. Debugging in Linux – How to debug applications written in Linux using gdb and analyzing core dump.
5. Embedded system – All about embedded systems
6. Programming – Programming languages like C and C++ with data structures.
7. Compilers – gcc and g++ in details
