Linux Command Line Basics

Udemy’s bestseller Linux course is available for FREE only for It’s FOSS readers and thus for Linux Deals members.

Linux Command Line Basics is the bestseller Linux course on Udemy. It is suitable for beginners but it is also beneficial for intermediate Linux users.

Though this premium course costs close to $200, its creator Ahmed Alkabary has made it available for free exclusively for It’s FOSS readers. This is because It’s FOSS inspired Ahmed to learn Linux and its tutorials were also instrumental in landing him a job as a sysadmin at IBM Canada.

It’s Ahmed’s way of giving back to the It’s FOSS community and I sincerely thank him for this benevolent gesture.
