You're reading the documentation for a version of ROS 2 that has reached its EOL (end-of-life), and is no longer officially supported. If you want up-to-date information, please have a look at Humble.
The beginner-level tutorials are a collection of step-by-step instructions meant to introduce newcomers to ROS 2. It starts with using the Commandline Interface (CLI) tools, then moves on to the C++ and Python client libraries.
