Command Line
MORE INFO

Suppose you wanted to go search through a large amount of text and count the number of lines matching a particular word or phrase. Say, the number of times the word “rose” appears in the famous Sonnets by William Shakespeare. What might be the easiest way to do this? The answer is to use the command line.

Understanding the basics of the command line is absolutely essential to becoming a skilled software developer. It’s also useful for anyone who needs to work with developers, such as product managers, project managers, and designers. Making this critical component of modern computing accessible to as broad an audience as possible is the goal of Learn Enough Command Line to Be Dangerous.

To be productive with the command line, you don’t have to know everything about it—you just have to learn enough to be dangerous.

Text Editor
MORE INFO

Plain text is one of the most important kinds of computer data. It makes up World Wide Web pages, computer source code, system configuration files, and more. The tool used to edit plain text files is called, appropriately enough, a text editor.

Unlike other text editor tutorials, which are typically tied to a specific editor, this tutorial is designed to introduce the entire category of application—a category many people don’t even know exists. Moreover, editor-specific tutorials tend to be aimed at professional developers, and generally assume years of experience, but Learn Enough Text Editor to Be Dangerous doesn’t even assume you know what a “text editor” is.

To be productive with text editors, you don’t have to know everything about them—you just have to learn enough to be dangerous.

Git
MORE INFO

Version control solves a problem that might look familiar if you’ve ever seen Word documents or Excel spreadsheets with names like Report_2014_1.doc, Report_2014_2.doc, Report_2014_3.doc, or budget-v7.xls. These cumbersome names indicate how annoying it can be to track different versions of documents. Learn Enough Git to Be Dangerous teaches you how to use Git, the most popular and powerful version control system.

A version control system provides an automatic way to track changes in software projects, giving creators the power to view previous versions of files and directories, develop speculative features without disrupting the main development, securely back up the project and its history, and collaborate easily and conveniently with others. In addition, using version control also makes deploying production websites and web applications much easier. As a result, fluency in at least one version control system is an incredibly valuable skill for developer, designer, and manager alike.

To be productive with Git, you don’t have to know everything about it—you just have to learn enough to be dangerous.
