CompTIA Linux+ with Command Line


Linux is an open-source, UNIX-like operating system created by Linus Torvalds that runs a plethora of different devices today. When you do your online banking or use Google, Facebook or Twitter, you’re talking to Linux servers in the cloud. In fact, nearly all supercomputers and cloud servers run Linux, as does your Android smartphone and many other devices around your home and workplace, such as firewalls and routers. Even your touch-screen refrigerator, home media center, smart thermostat and in-car GPS run Linux.

This program introduces students to the competencies required of an early career IT professional supporting Linux systems. The content provides thorough coverage of command-line skills that work on multiple distributions and prepares anyone who wants to acquire in-depth knowledge of common Linux tasks. In addition to topics traditionally associated with systems administration tasks, such as configuring, managing, operating and troubleshooting in a Linux environment, this program also focuses on security, kernel modules, storage and virtualization, enterprise-level device management, DevOps basics, through Git and automation. The program further walks through networking and firewalls, especially involving security issues, server-side and command line, troubleshooting and SELinux with a focus on implementation.
