Bash may seem like a strange tool to invest time into learning—it’s old (like literally as old as I am) and doesn’t have the appeal of learning that new framework everyone’s talking about. But in my experience, whenever I’ve invested time into learning more about it , whether it’s just a few commands or it’s core language syntax, it’s always paid off for me by increasing my productivity and enhancing my ability to contribute to my team at work.

In this course, you'll learn the essentials of what every front-end developer should know about bash. The topics we cover will give you confidence in doing things like creating build scripts that run on continuous integration servers, quickly testing and debugging an API with curl, and more—the automation possibilities with bash are endless.

By the end of the course, you’ll be able to use bash to interact with the file system, search text patterns in files, create scripts, pipe and redirect output, and use variables and conditionals.

Enjoy the course!
