Consulting sysadmin Mike Weilgart returns to LOPSA LA with a presentation on UNIX/Linux Shell Basics.
We've all heard of the shell, and we've all used it at least a little bit. But what IS a shell, really? What makes shell scripting fundamentally different from any other programming language? What really happens when you type a command into your shell--and how does this relate to the mistake found in over 50% of Production shell scripts? Attend this talk, demystify the shell and learn to use it right!
