There is a course on linux on edx by linux foundation. Why don't you try that?
zymk11373yThank you for the advice everyone. I'll definitely take a look at everyone's suggestions.
@valium123 edx from linux foundation
@kryptxy python the hard way
@Condor I've dabbled with Ubuntu a few times maybe I need to pull the trigger and just not revert to Windows as soon I want to play videogames again lol.
Well... I learned Linux while in University...
Basically Vista times so you can understand why :)
I did an Ubuntu install and just started setting everything up using only Google.
Meanwhile I used nothing else.
After 2 months I was pretty "at ease" with bash/Linux. At one point I deleted the boot partition 🙃🙃😎😎 that was fun.
My point being just working with it even in a home environment will get you going and I'd (and did) go cold 🦃!
As for coding for me it started as a hobby with web/front end then backend then mobile.
My own PERSONAL opinion that I have no interest fighting over in replies (🤓) is that java is good for pretty much everything. You can do a killer backend (app engine runs Jetty by eclipse), you can also do a native java UI (though no one wants to and I don't blame em) and you can do Android with it.
On top of that it has libraries and docs for everything (also check kotlin and Scala with it for functional programming)
Kazumi963yGoogle/StackOverflow is your friend. When in doubt just ask them. I learned a lot of useful commands by just googling (like "how to batch rename files in linux"). It's also worth mentioning that I set up and maintain my own websites on Linux VPS's, you can learn a bunch of useful Linux commands in the process. Don't know how? Just Google!
