This course introduces the Unix operating system and enables you to write Unix Shell Scripts. Delegates will incrementally build scripts of increasing complexity, and learn to perform tasks such as console I/O, text manipulation, arithmetic, process control and signal handling. The course is taught using the Korn shell, but also discusses Bash, Bourne and C shells. The course can be delivered on any version of UNIX, but typically Red Hat or Ubuntu Linux is used. Tools specific to particular flavours of UNIX (e.g. DTrace on Solaris) are not covered by default, but can usually be included if required.
As with all our courses, the syllabus can be tweaked to cover more advanced topics, depending on your needs.
The course is delivered by a seasoned Unix developer with over 20 years experience of working in Unix-based systems.
