"A fantastic introduction to working with shell! As a user of windows for all of my life and having never touched linux , this course made it so I could comfortably navigate linux / mac os and more importantly, clarified a lot of things about how OSes work. A really excellent primer for anyone who wants to get that foundational computer science knowledge. Highly recommended."
"AMAZING! I've been a programmer for a long time, which includes working a ilttile with Linux/UNIX environment. However, because of the daily work, we are only focused on solving application issues of legacy systems, and not doing something from scratch. This course opened my eyes for some things that I had never done before (to have my hands durty, as the professor says. LOL), and it was truly good! Thanks, Gustavo!"
"Gustavo is reassuring and personable. This is important to me as a retiree new to Linux, and wanting to embark on a programming hobby.
Excellent video overlay of Gustavo's image and hands pointing at the text on the video image of the terminal, in real time. This like a tutor in a live lesson. The ability to replay the mini-lessons compensates for lack of true face to face teaching.
Compared to the numerous free youtube tutorials: there are no intrusive adverts, no flashy video editing gimics, no merchandising and no heavy accented tutors with diction that makes you concentrate to hard on the words to extract the meaning. I reviewed the lessons many times. I know that the only way to integrate the knowledge knowledge is to practice. This was a good toe in the water and I am ready to start another course."
"Incredibly good course! It includes so much more than just the basics! You learn which tools are essential for development and you get a very good all-round view. After the course you will see your computer with different eyes. Highly recommended!"
"Great Refresher and I actually learned some new things! My last formal UNIX class was in the middle 90's when I worked for NCR (at the time an At&t company)! One of my instructors was a developer of S5R4-MPRAS which was a big deal back them. For the past 25 years I've been mostly a Windows and web developer but I play around a bunch with Raspberry Pi projects and have been tinkering with many Linux based projects and even poking through code for some Vectrex development projects on the PiTrex a Pi Power Vectrex card that hijacks the old GCE Vectrex hardware for all kinds of new vector tricks not possible with the 6809 processor. This course cleared up a ton of what I was fumbling through on the gcc side. Thanks!"
