Linux System Programming


With the help of Linux System Programming, you can learn to develop and run your own programs on a Linux system. You’ll work with the Linux kernel, which controls the computer hardware and provides an interface to the operating system. You’ll also learn how to interact with other processes running on your system, such as other users’ programs and background daemons that perform tasks for you.

Our Linux Certification Course is the perfect way to get started with your career in IT. In just 1.5 Months, you’ll be able to:

-Understand the basics of Linux and its underlying structure

-Install and configure a basic LAMP server

-Use shell scripts in PHP and Python

-Manage files and directories on the command line
