Now I'm a limits trainer and consultant working within my own company, the Urban Penguin within the UK I've designed this course to give you the skills needed in developing your skills in understanding a syntax and keywords used in modern little shells. Those like bash and said Shh. As you progress through this course, you gonna gain greater understanding of using things like variables and how to use the declare command. Of course, you're gonna learn how to write different conditional statements before moving on to the ever amazing looping structures. Some of the major topics that we cover includes converting case using the command declare. We'll be looking at the for each loop within said shh as well as writing effective shell functions. By the end of this course, you're gonna be able to write scripts that are both efficient and easily repurpose for other needs. The big take away, though, is to understand that you were looking detail at specific element of scripting syntax that are so often used before beginning this course, you should be familiar with the Leninist command line and, of course, executing commands. With this knowledge already in your arsenal, you'll gain the most from this course on Really extend your shell scripting abilities. Now, I really hope you wanna join me on this journey in learning the details that you've always wanted to know about shell syntax.
