Hacktoberfest this year has been amazing 🤩

Together with the community we've managed to write a first draft of an open source eBook purely based on Hacktoberfest contributionbs 🙌

GitHub logo bobbyiliev / 101-linux-commands-ebook

101 Linux commands Open-source eBook

💻 ++101 Linux commands Open-source eBook

This is an open-source eBook with 101 Linux commands that everyone should know. No matter if you are a DevOps/SysOps engineer, developer, or just a Linux enthusiast, you will most likely have to use the terminal at some point in your career.
