Playing with the Treehouse Console

So I was playing around with the new Treehouse Console that is part of the Console Foundations course.

I learned a few things, I thought I'd share with the forum:

  • You can run commands that can break your console
  • If you ever want to start over from scratch
    • delete the cookie for console.teamtreehouse.com
  • The Treehouse Console is an Amazon EC2 instance running Ubuntu

Thanks James! :)

Any Recommended methods to build skills beyond "Console Foundations"?

It depends on your comfort level with the command line. If you are still getting comfortable then check out command line crash course and linuxcommand.org, there's a lot of overlap with those 2 courses and Console Foundations but if you are looking for more practice it's a good place to start.

If after you go through both of those and you still want more, then it's time for linuxacademy.com, they have interactive, step-by-step video courses that gives you access to a real Linux lab environment, with the ability to play, learn, and follow lessons on actual Linux servers.

Thank you very much; I will definitely check those out.
