Look inside

After taking this course, Shell Scripting, you will be able to create shell scripts with ease. You'll learn how to take tedious and repetitious tasks and turn them into programs that will save you time and will simplify your life.

Although what you’ll learn in this course can be applied to any shell, the focus of this course, however, is on the Bash shell, where you'll learn some advanced Bash features. Whether you're using Bash, Bourne (sh), KornShell (ksh), C shell (csh), Z shell (zsh), or even the tcsh shell, you'll put what you learn to good use.

You'll be able to use these scripts on any Linux environment including Ubuntu, Debian, Linux Mint, RedHat, Fedora, OpenSUSE, Slackware, Kali Linux, and more. Your scripts will even run on other operating systems such as Apple's Mac OS X, Oracle's Solaris, IBM's AIX, HP's HP-UX, FreeBSD, NetBSD, and OpenBSD.
