Linux is more than a niche alternative. It's popular for desktops and crucial for software development. CentOS is a Linux distribution (derived from Red Hat Enterprise Linux) that is popular with system admins, dev ops engineers, and home users alike. This course shows you how to install and make your way around CentOS 7, perform common tasks from the command line, and get a firewall, a web server, and shared folders up and running. Author Scott Simpson also discusses security-enhanced Linux (SELinux), which adds an additional level of security to CentOS.
