Linux Foundation Launches New Training Courses On edX


The Linux Foundation has announced three new training courses on the edX platform: Open Source Software Development: Linux for Developers (LFD107x), Linux Tools for Software Development (LFD108x), and Git for Distributed Software Development (LFD109x). The three courses can be taken individually or combined to earn a Professional Certificate in Open Source Software Development, Linux and Git.

The three courses combine into the “Open Source Software Development, Linux and Git” Professional Certificate Program, which is designed for developers with experience working on any operating system who want to understand the basics of open source software development. The program surveys how open source software works, including advantages of using it, methods of working in OSS communities, governance models and licensing choices.

Open Source Software Development: Linux for Developers (LFD107x) explores the key concepts of developing open source software and how to work productively in a Linux environment. This course delves into Linux systems, including installation, desktop environments, text editors, important commands and utilities, command shells and scripts, filesystems, and compiling software.

Linux Tools for Software Development (LFD108x) examines the tools necessary to do everyday work in Linux development environments and beyond. Upon completion, participants will be familiar with essential command line tools, so they can work comfortably and productively in Linux environments.

Git for Distributed Software Development (LFD109x) provides a thorough introduction to Git, the source control system that arose out of the Linux kernel community, that enables widely distributed development to operate efficiently. The course will prepare participants to use Git to create new repositories or clone existing ones, commit new changes, review revision histories, examine differences with older versions, work with different branches, merge repositories, and work with a distributed development team.

To earn the professional certificate, participants must enroll in the program, complete all three courses, and pay a verified certificate fee of $149 per course. Each of the three courses can also be taken through edX in audit mode for no cost for those who do not require a certificate of completion.
