Some of the guides here: (e.g., Bash Guide
for Beginners)

Some chapters from Rutebook. Install the package rutebook from the
Ubuntu repositories, then open /usr/share/doc/rutebook/html/index.html
in your browser (or open /usr/share/doc/rutebook/rute.pdf.gz in Evince)

There are many other things you can do, but I think these will keep you
busy for a while :)
