Linux Shell Programming for Beginners
Imagine having to continuously repeat one process over and over again for a long period of time – sounds pretty boring, doesn’t it? Well, a huge number of developers end up doing this when they are coding, repeating sections of their codes over and over again – especially when it comes to working with Linux.
The UNIX or Linux operating system is a powerful tool for designing other operating systems or coding apps, systems and even websites. However, it has this little hitch – you need to use tons of commands to get the system to program. This is where developers waste much of their time, repeating monotonous tasks.
What would you say, if I said you could automate these tasks?
Well, with BASH (Bourne Again Shell) you can. BASH is a UNIX shell and a command language that interprets and executes commands from the standard input or a file. However, you don’t always have to call commands continuously. The best part about BASH is that you can automate commands so that they can run automatically, reducing the amount of coding you have to do.
Here’s a course that can teach you to do just that! Our BASH course is perfect to teach you how to automate tasks, write shell scripts, learn the inner workings of command history, variables, and even the echo command. You don’t even have to be from a programming background to learn with this course. All you need is a little familiarity with UNIX/Linux and have a UNIX/Linux machine (can even be virtual). This course will do the rest and take you on a journey that you will remember for a lifetime.
This BASH course will start from the basics and answer any questions you have about BASH and writing Shell scripts. It will cover topics such as what is a shell, what is a shell script, difference between an interactive shell and a shell script, customizing your shell, conditional statements, loops, command-line options and so much more.
We don’t believe in only theoretical learning, so at each step you will find numerous examples that will show you exactly how to write the script, why a particular script works in a particular manner and examples of that script and what it does when executed.
At the end of this course, you will learn:
