This course is a beginner-level course and is for those who want to improve their shell scripting or programming. System Administrators, Developers, or IT engineers who do not have any prior programming experience can go through this course to gain basic knowledge of shell scripting. As part of this course, we will explain the necessary programming concepts required for shell scripting. And we learn in a fun way using examples. As well as our hands-on labs that will make sure you gain enough understanding right after you learn each concept. We will test your scripts to make sure you have written them correctly. This course is divided into different sections where we discuss what shell scripts are and how to get started with your first shell script. We discuss how to make your scripts executable.
