About this course
Any command you can run in your terminal can be run using Bash scripting. When you have a command or set of commands that you will be using frequently, you can write a script in Bash to perform it. This course will guide you through writing your own scripts to automate a number of processes, and how to write aliases to make calling those scripts easier.
Hands-on learningDon’t just watch or read about someone else coding — write your own code live in our online, interactive platform. You’ll even get AI-driven recommendations on what you need to review to help keep you on track.
