Do you wish to wield the power of the UNIX command line, but are intimidated by the cryptic syntax and seemingly never-ending list of commands? This two-day course is designed specifically to introduce you to The UNIX Command-Line as it applies to Mac OS X, where you will learn specific commands and how to use them in the proper context while supporting Mac OS X computers. There is a great wealth of troubleshooting, management, and deployment techniques for Mac OS X that are only available to those willing to tackle the learning curve of the BASH shell and UNIX commands as it applies to Mac OS X. After establishing a solid foundation, we’ll explore command line tools to help with administration and management of your Macs.
Before taking this course, students should have an intermediate understanding of OS X, experience with OS X in a network environment, and basic troubleshooting experience or the 101 Support Essentials course. This is not a course for those new to Mac OS X.
