Should sololearn have lessons about operating systems and networking?

I have spent my career working mostly as an app and services developer on windows and I am learning networking and Linux at the moment as my company embraced devops and being just a dev is not enough anymore. I think it would be nice to have a basic lesson(s) about unix/linux here on sololearn too, we already have the c language course which is great. I feel that having a basic understanding of the main os and networking in addition to practicing coding skills would be beneficial for everyone

Short answer: No, but bash lessons would be very helpful. Long answer: One of the best ways to learn how to use Linux is to start with a beginner-unfriendly distro like Arch Linux or even Gentoo, and to push yourself through it through it, installing it and fully setting it up on a system. End result is someone who has a decently deep understanding of GNU/Linux, and can blow people away with 'terminal skills'. If someone truly wants to learn how to use GNU/Linux, they should just download a tough distro and grind a day at it. Basically, I believe that learning GNU/Linux should be hands-on, and it should be as quick as jumping into cold water and trying to warm yourself up through swimming.

it is good to see that people like to know about bash. the idea about adding bash to sololearn was raised few times, just search for bash on sololearn. there are many free resources to learn bash. i think this is the situation when someone just have to write the lesson if he/she wants to see it on sololearn. https://devhints.io/bash https://www.tldp.org/LDP/abs/html/index.html https://ryanstutorials.net/bash-scripting-tutorial/bash-if-statements.php#introduction i want to write a lesson about linux, so someone can do a lesson about bash. i believe there is no better way to deepen yoir knowledge in something than by trying to explain it to someone as short as possible are there any bash experts here? bash is really fun to learn. just have a look how the if statement looks like in bash: if [ $1 -gt 100 ] then echo Hey that\'s a large number. fi

This is a very genuine and valid suggestion of which I do propose that you give lessons about it since in sololearn we have no such course. Thanks

If the systems we use to code operate with (operating system) then it will be vital for us to have knowledge about it

yes , bash and shell scripts should be learned everywhere , because first: it is basic and easy to understand second : it's the base to learn networking and system it will be perfect if sololearn can offer us lessons or courses

Yes, would be also great to have lessons about computer architecture! (Assembly coding would be great as well)
