Originally developed in the late 1960s by AT&T, UNIX has evolved into a family of multitasking, multiuser computer operating systems that are widely used in all forms of computing systems including desktops, laptops, and servers. Classes in a UNIX bootcamp cover the basics of a UNIX environment, such as filesystems and architecture, as well as a variety of tasks that can be done from the shell, including filesystem manipulation, basic commands, and text editing.

UNIX was originally created for programmers. It is still used today, and those wishing to pursue careers as programmers will benefit greatly by learning about this system. Unix-based systems have become the most pervasive for consumer computing, and they are at the very foundation of iOS, Mac OSX, Roku, and PlayStation. In 2018, computer programmers earned a median yearly wage of $84,280. A 7 percent decrease in employment in this field is projected over the next 10 years.

Bootcamps in technology, data science, and coding are designed for those interested in careers in the technology sector, and SwitchUp helps students easily find one that suits their interests and career goals. The bootcamps in UNIX teach students all the basic commands and functions of the system, including both the concepts and tools that are needed to work effectively in the UNIX environment.
