Have you tried to learn shell scripting on your own, but lack the structure you need to really improve your skills?
Are you tired of picking up bits and pieces of information that you can’t just seem to put together?
Do you learn best by doing?
If so, you’re going to love this course.
One of the biggest complaints I hear from students is that most of the courses they’ve taken in the past simply provide information without any context and without any idea of how to put that information to use!  
This course turns that old, frustrating, and outdated way of learning on its head.  
It’s project-based, which means instead of learning bits and pieces of information, you’ll write actual shell scripts that you can use in real-world situations. You get the chance to immediately put what you learn to use so that you fully understand and remember it.
In this Linux shell scripting course you will learn how to:
•Name your shell scripts.•Use the proper permissions on your shell scripts.•Create and use variables in your scripts.•Use shell built-in commands and operating system commands.•Make the most out of special variables that are available to you in your scripts.•Make decisions by using if statements and performing several different kinds of tests•Check the exit statuses of commands and why you need to.•Use cryptographic hash functions•Create random data so you can do things like automatically generate strong passwords for user accounts.•Perform the same action or set of actions over a series of data utilizing for loops, while loops, and infinite loops.•Control all types of input and output.•Accept standard input from a user as well as from another program.•Redirect standard output and standard error.•Combine standard output and standard error•Use command pipelining•Perform text and string manipulation.•Process command line arguments•Creating functions and when to do so.•Parsing, analyzing, and reporting on log files, CSV files, and other data.•Writing scripts that execute commands on other systems.•Much, much, more…When you enroll, you get lifetime access to the course.  Your course never expires.  You can study at your own pace and refer back to the lessons whenever you want!
I stand behind my courses and care about your goals.  That’s why this course comes with an unconditional 30-day money-back guarantee. It’s my personal promise of your success!  So…
