If you are interested in a course to get comfortable with the shell in unix I highly recommend this course. I'm taking it now and it's quite well done.

BTW, Spinellis MOOC about unix tools must be great:

I'm really a fan of Spinellis, his books are excellent:

Effective Debugging book is a must read for any software developer. The Elements of Computing Style is useful for any knowledge worker. Code Reading is probably the only important book in the subject.

The only problem with his books is that they are rather expensive, specially for developers who doesn't earn in dollars :-(

That is indeed a pity. I try to compensate by making as much material as possible openly available, such as through the MOOC you mentioned (I've been working for five years on it), through my blog, and through open source software and content.
