In this series, we are going to learn the basics of using the command-line interface. If you have ever been scared when the cursor shows up on a seemingly blank screen or wondered what the Terminal or cmd application can accomplish, then stay tuned to learn the basics and increase your productivity.
Hello and welcome to
Getting Technical with the Terminal.
Here to help us explain what this series
is all about is Mr. Justin Dennison.
So Justin, what are we going
to be learning about in this
>> Well, the main goal of this series is
to remove some of the fear that happens
when we remove the GUI interface, right?
The graphical user interface from our
interactions with the computer and learn
a little bit about how to create folders,
create files, move folders and files.
Navigate around without the point and
click that we're all so
use to in an effort, well,
to make us a little more productive, and
to make us comfortable in case we ever
have to encounter that environment again.
>> All right, well, that sounds exciting.
So who is this intended for?
What's our target audience here?
this target audience is definitely,
you've never been in a terminal, right?
You have never seen what
the command line interface or
just this basic interface with no GUI
application, you've never seen it before.
And if you're part of that,
then that's our ultimate goal
is to make you comfortable.
Allow you to understand what's going on,
and create a modicum of proficiency.
>> Well, it sounds like the perfect
series for me because that's
where I would need to start.
So is this geared towards
any type of certification or
technical body that I can take a test for?
>> This is not certification-based,
this is more about, well,
learning a little more so
we can continue our progression, right?
If you want to learn how to
become a proficient developer,
well, you're probably gonna end up
in a terminal from time to time.
And this is targeted towards you,
to dip our toes into the water and
get things rolling.
And if that sounds like a set of skills
that you're ready to embark on, well,
I'll see you there.
