Humans were never meant to repeat joyless tasks in a precise manner, over and over and over. Computers are meant precisely for these types of tasks.

Bash is a ubiquitous technology in web development that gives you the immense power of automating repetitive tasks you find yourself performing throughout the day.

The topics we cover will give you confidence in creating build scripts that run on continuous integration servers or quickly testing and debugging an API with curl.

What you'll learn:

  • Interacting with the file system
  • Creating, moving, copying, and deleting files and folders
  • Finding files and text patterns in files
  • Creating and running scripts
  • Language syntax like variables and conditionals

    It was enough details to get me started but not too many to get me confused. Thanks.

    Very useful commands! The course was specific enough to use right away, and I appreciated that you went into the context for each command and command variant.

    Thanks!

    Great course! I'm at about a year and change into software development and this helped a ton to understand some commands that I just ran because I knew they worked. The real world examples are great too. Thanks!
