Considering how much the command line is an integral part of the developer's workflow, it should not be thought overly difficult or tedious to learn.
At one time I avoided it myself, but one day began teaching myself ways to make the difficult as easy as it should be. I got over the hurdle, and you can too. It was worth investing my time to increase my command line comfort-level, and I am going to share a few tips and resources that I found helpful in this post.
The intended reader is the type who typically avoids the command line, or perhaps uses it occasionally but not as a regular or essential tool.
