Ever wanted to learn more about what makes Linux so … Linuxy?
The site thankfully skips the usual clichéd articles that traditional pad out introductory sites. You know the kinds of posts I mean: ‘ what is Linux?’, ‘how to choose a distro’, ‘how to dual boot with windows’, etc.
All useful if you don’t know if you want Linux, not so useful after you’ve already got it.
So, instead, Linux Journey puts the focus on the stuff that matters: Linux itself. A bevy of bitesize lessons teach you how key parts of Linux work they way they do, no matter which distribution you install, and how you can learn to master them.
Sharing a link to his site on Reddit, WarbyDarby says that : “ [I made the website to] help newcomers learn Linux and I’d really appreciate some feedback.”
”It’s a little more in-depth than some other learning Linux sites, but the reason I made the site was to gain a better understanding of Linux by teaching it to others.
“There are portions for each section for exercises and quizzes (which could use a lot of work). I initially wanted to add an interactive console, but it became way too much work for a hobby site. “
Beautifully Designed, And Useful Too
The entire site looks beautiful.
It’s a tad Material Design, and makes great use of colour, layout and iconography.
Subjects are neatly categorised and are broken down into easily digestible ‘lessons’. Most lessons have a set of exercises and an interactive quiz to help you put you’ve just read into practice.
