Last weekend LKLUG community conducted a workshop on Shell Scripting at LSF lab. It has been sometime after the last workshop done by them so I’m happy to say that I got a chance to meet and talk with the GNU/linux geeks and gurus in Sri Lanka. And I also got a chance to be a part of organizing the event. It was a two day sessions covering up various usages of shell scripting in getting the routine work automated and its basics. Since I had just a brief idea and a short experience with the shell scripting, it was a grate help and a guidance for me to expand my understanding.
We had sessions on introduction up to advance features of shell scripting, how to play with your images using ImageMagick tools, effectively handle Regular Expressions with shell scripting, log rotation and the use of iptables.
