To understand the command line...

Linux

...you must first understand Unix.

I gave another talk at my local LUG this week. The idea was to set the scene so I could then move onto more useful things like git, perl, javascript, etc.

I wanted to begin by getting everybody comfortable and familiar with the command line. The concept I wanted to put across was that using the CLI is like walking into the film 10 minutes before the end. It doesn't make sense because you don't know what lead up to it.

rest here
