The Linux Shell - From Novice to Wizard

The linux command line is powerful, but for those of us who weren't “borne” into that world, it can be a bit daunting. If the extent of your usage of the command line is limited to a handful of memorized git commands, npm cli, and the occassional copy and paste one-liner from the web, this session is for you.

In this session, we cover the basics of the *nix toolbelt, and how those tools can be chained together to unleash powerful compositions that will transform your workflow. Next we cover a series of tips, tricks, and shortcuts to increase your speed. Finally, we cover shell extensions and plugins worth exploring. If you've been watching command-line wizards with envy; this is your opportunity to join them.
