WDI Day One: The Command Line

Today was the first day of class, and I was definitely feeling a bit nervous and giddy. I’ve never done something like this before, taking leave from my company just to delve head-on into learning something.

For the most part the day was filled with team building exercises and getting to know my classmates. The instructors reviewed the format of the course and how GA works. It was all the usual introductory type of day.

The coursework dealt with the command line interface (CLI) and a few of the commands that would really come in handy throughout the duration of the course. This included the following:

ls // list directory contents
cd // current directory
touch // create a file
mkdir // create a directory
cp // copy files
pwd // print working directory

I haven’t had a chance to really jump into navigating the terminal, so even though today was more of a review day for me, I still had a few take aways that will come in handy in the future.
