Well, If you are new to Linux then maybe start with reading man pages of the useful commands and getting a grip on command usage. After it you can start "Shell Programming" which utilizes the commands you already learnt.

Hint::To schedule jobs in Linux you can use cron jobs. But you'll have to learn them all.

Happy Learning

For a scheduler at the cli level, as above, you'd normally use the built-in cron service.

You'll definitely need to learn a shell; probably bash.

If you want to write an OS/kernel scheduler, you'll need to learn C in depth.

Remember that with Linux, all the src code is available to you, free & legal.
