Whether you are using a Mac or Windows or Linux, if you haven’t started using the Command Line (CLI), you are missing out big time. How can you learn CLI? I found a terrific article that shows you how to get a running start. I highly recommend it. The author has you pull out index cards and demands you memorize stuff while in the shower… yeah I know it sounds kind of strange but give it a chance… I did and feel I’m ready to start using the same ‘Hardway’ technique for Python and Ruby.
This author has compiled a great resource and he is giving enough to offer it online for free. This is what the Internet is all about. People giving back and helping others learn.
