About This Course

Depending on your tasks in the lab, at some point or the other you will be asked to use command line, also known as a terminal (on a Mac) or PowerShell (in Windows) or connect to a server to get some data from it or lookup/perform some operations. Basic knowledge of commonly used terms around server technologies as well as the ability to run basic commands in a terminal and connect to a server will be tools you might end up needing on a daily basis. Finally, we will also cover Cron Jobs which allow you to set up scheduled tasks on a computer system that repeat at a fixed interval.
