Bash Scripting - How would you like to Learn?
by, 29-Sep-2011 at 18:38 (4474 Views)
So it has been suggested that I consider starting a blog on Bash scripting. I have spent a far amount of time lately
working on and posting bash scripts here in the openSUSE forum in the hope that you might find something useful to you.
I don't think such efforts would make me any sort of bash scripting expert, but what if our goal is to help each other
instead of just one master showing everyone else how it is done? In fact I have said more than once here in the forum
that when you try to help someone else, you will be in fact helping yourself as well. Is it possible we could also apply
such a task to learning bash scripting? Now we really do have some very good scripting experts in this very forum and
if we are lucky, perhaps we could get them in here to help. To get started though, we need some suggestions on what
kind of tasks we want to perform while learning bash scripting? What I have determined about most self teaching methods
is that we need a useful goal, some task we want to automate using bash scripting. It needs to be of interest to lots
of people, but not so difficult as to cause our readers to lose their interest in the task of learning. So to start off
with this task of learning bash scripting I need your ideas and I need your support. What do you want to do, that might
be interesting to lots of people? What goal have you set for your self for bash scripting? Now, if you have seen my
blogs here, you know I have an interest in writing bash scripts and I like to share them with others. Would you like
to help do the same here as well? Please, respond to this blog with any suggestions you might have which could help to
our common goal to learn how to write a bash script. For ideas, look around your daily tasks using openSUSE. How many
things do you find yourself doing over and over? Have you ever consider automating it? Have you ever tried to write a
Bash script before? I can tell you that it can be exciting when you manage to get a program that you wrote working. It
can be exciting when you find out that another fellow Linux user is using your program on his or her PC and is happy to
be using it. All thanks to you and your help. If you are interested, please let me know as soon as you read this message.
