20,000 Leagues Under Your Shell by @tylerjl has won the first position with a clear majority!

Over time most Linux aficionados accrue a sparkling war chest full of hard-won tricks that can come in tremendously handy when a situation demands quick thinking at your terminal. I stashed away many of these bits of knowledge over the years and whenever I had the opportunity to watch over the shoulder of somebody exceptionally well-versed with Linux.


Today, you're pairing with me at the terminal. We're exploring the depths of Linux filesystem and shell tools and tricks.


This is one great story, @tylerjl! Well deserved! You have won $1250!

Commencing Your Linux Journey: 8 Commands You Should Know by @infinity has won the second position!

“But why Command Line Interface (CLI)?“


I asked this question to the computer professor at my university when he was trying to introduce Linux CLI or Command Line Interface to the class. Like most of the students in my class, almost all of the interaction that I have had with computers was using Windows OS. Accustomed to using ‘*My Computer’*in Windows, utilizing weird-looking commands to do simple tasks such as listing files felt an overkill to me.


Great storytelling @infinity! You have won $1000!

Last but not least, we have Linux Isn't Scary by @indieboy!

Once upon a time, in a land far, far away (Africa), a boy of great courage dared to use Linux. This is his story.


Congratulations, @indieboy! You’ve won 750 USD!


On that note, let’s wrap up the announcement! See y’all next month! We will contact the winners shortly. Keep an eye on contests.hackernoon.com to see the current and upcoming writing contests! To know more about the rules, visit the webpage for The #Linux Writing Contest.
