As you become a more experienced developer, you'll start to move away from graphical interfaces and towards the command line. This class introduces you to SSH Keys, an important tool for command line users.
SSH is short for "Secure Shell", and is helpful for connecting safely to servers. SSH Keys are a more secure way of logging into your server than using with SSH with just a password.
Robert learned HTML/CSS back in 2008 when he decided to start a film review site, and he continued adding to his site file-by-file the old-fashioned way for a year. When he asked a web developer friend how to build a site that "automatically lists content on the homepage and stuff," he was pointed to Drupal.
Since then, Robert has continued to build his experience with the CMS by using it on his own projects and by managing other brands' pre-existing Drupal sites. In doing so, he has learned some of the best ways to use the tools Drupal has available--and what mistakes to avoid.
In his spare time, Robert trains Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and works on too many side programming projects. He is also the author of two books.
