You will learn the basics of the operating system and how to establish the resources you need. It is an essential capability for anyone who needs to become proficient in administering, packaging, configuring, securing and maintaining their applications and services in the cloud.  You will learn how the Linux’s internals and command-line interface work, and practice all of these by writing scripts to control, configure, provision and automate resources you need for your operational environment in the cloud.
