Beginner Bash

Tony WilliamsPart of XW16

This workshop will start with understanding, setting up and using the command line before moving on to simple shell programming before finishing with LaunchAgents and LaunchDaemons. Along the way we’ll cover the ‘defaults’ command, flow control and looping, command results, chaining commands, and regular expressions among other topics.

It is open to anyone with or without experience using the command line.
