Course Description

Post Graduate Diploma in Linux

This course covers the Linux architecture in general, booting process, how to install Centos7 OS, system initialization and some basic commands.

Discussed about the process and its communications. 

It gives good knowledge on the OS concepts.

Provides basic fundamental utilities which are required again and again on daily basis to work on a modern operating system.

Write useful shell scripts which greatly and effectively enhance the usefulness of computers, from the point of view of programmers and application developers.

To Understand basics of various OS related concepts, from programmer’s point of view, like files, directories, kernel, inodes, APIs, system calls, processes, signals, etc.

Develop applications where several processes need to communicate with each other to complete a task.

Use different IPC ways in their programs like Message Queues, Semaphores, and Shared Memories.
