Great course for beginners. Proves to be a great reference for people who are working on multiple platforms and tend to forget syntax of different languagess

This was one of the best courses on Coursera. I really liked it's open-minded structure and nice introduction to unix environment.

It is suitable for Unix/Linux beginners who are new to shell. It introduces popular code sharing and merging tool GitHub, which most programmers would find very useful in software development.

Simple and clear materials for self-learning basic Unix and Bash programming.
