Learn how to administer Linux, the most common operating system in the cloud. While the main focus will be on Linux, where there's a parallel or overlap with the professional administration of deployments on Amazon's AWS architecture, we will also highlight the skills you'll need to integrate the cloud into your Linux portfolio.

Besides a general overview of Linux, this path will introduce you to Linux system architecture, boot and package management, the command line, working with text strings, and filesystems.

The cloud is the future, and Linux skills are the tools you'll need to get there.
