Get under-the-hood and behind-the-scenes with the most popular Linux command shell, the Bash shell. This course covers streams, variables, environments, interpreting and executing commands, pipelines, aliases, and more.

What you'll learn

In this course, we cover the main aspects of the Bash shell, still the most popular Linux command shell. Throughout the course, the author uses a balance of theory and practical examples to teach the fundamental components of the Bash shell. This is not a course that teaches hundreds of commands and shortcuts, it's a course that gets under the covers of the shell and demystifies the inner workings so that learners have a solid foundation to build on. Throughout the course, all theoretical principles are backed up with hands-on examples.
