Why should developers learn to use the Terminal?…

Command-line Terminal tools allow developers to access a computer’s root programs, folders, and assets seamlessly from a singular interface. Developers can trigger actions with specific commands that direct the computer to execute specific tasks. Terminal commands are precise instructions that allow programmers to focus on designing the logic of the project instead of interacting with different graphic user interfaces and folders structures of assets they are working with.

Every major operating system has a command-line interface. Mac and Linux based programs are commonly used in web software development. Most servers that host web applications use the Linux operating system. Proficiency with terminal commands is central to the ability to work with web servers and projects currently deployed as live websites.


Applicants to every level of software/web development are expected to have experience working with the terminal command line software as part of their daily developer workflow. Experience using the full suite of tools mentioned above denotes that the applicant is capable of navigating a codebase in a professional setting. Students of this course will gain the knowledge necessary to navigate the basic file structure of the Linux operating system commonly used in the production of web applications.

Course Project

Instruction starts by familiarizing students with basic syntax developers use to navigate, and manipulate the file structure of a web application. Coursework finishes with a review of fun options developers can use to customize their programming environment with trendy tools used within the industry. All coursework on the CodingPhase platform can be run across Windows, Macintosh, and Linux operating systems.
