I've used various Unixes on the desktop for around 20 years, and now work as a systems engineer, mainly with Linux systems. Along the way I've picked up bit of shell script.

I am extremely fond of *nix systems, especially GNU + Linux (the combined OS). BASH lets me truly unlock my system's potential. As a student of BASH myself, I look to learn and share, so you can 'unlock' your system, too.

If you're not using bash...why not?! Learning bash is one of the best things you can do. It can help automate tasks and make your life a lot easier.

I love working in bash so much that I refuse to use DM's. When I want an open-box or i3 session I can choose to start X, but a computer that drops me straight into a tty just feels like home!

When you can remember a time when the only way to interact with a computer was via the CLI, you learn to love it and quite frankly I do love it. I have been using both bash style and zsh style shells on Mac and various Linux distros for almost a decade. Prior to my current career as a MEAN stack developer, I was an undergraduate professor of chemistry and gained a tremendous amount of experience with bash shell scripts to automate and run analytical chemistry based lab instrumentation. I love to learn form others and help others learn and would love to get you bash obsessed!

I don't know why I love Bash. It's arcane, and hard to read, and not intuitive. But I love it, because it gets things done and makes me feel like a wizard. And I want to help you love it too!

RHCE currently aiming for RHCA. I'm spending my best years in a console, so I know a thing or two about Linux :). Enjoy working for a small company where I automate the process of making Linux distro. Some folks call me DevOps.

I use Bash daily at work and home, and I think it is a foundational skill for mastering any UNIX-like system.

I love coffee, bicycles, motorcycles and reading fantasy. I've been coding and automating my entire life.

Professional Software Engineer. Whenever I have something I need to automate, Bash is one of my go-tos - its flexibility and interesting syntax make it one of my favorite languages to write. Having direct access to command-line utilities within scripts makes Bash appealing by itself, but the language is so much more than just that. I look forward to helping others learn it!

SRE that loves work from the console. Some people say that I have a shellscript for everything. Always learning.

Bash is one of the first languages encountered by a *nix newcomer. It has a unique position in the programming ecosystem as both the interactive shell and as a fully-fledged programming language. One can do amazing things with it, as long as one accepts the need to be somewhat disciplined in order to handle the sometimes gnarly syntax. I've been a command line *nix hacker for over 25 years and I am happy to assist others on their quest for shell mastery.

I use linux very often and I like to use the power of terminal and bash. I like to automate my works, and for this I like shell scripting with bash so much.

Bash, my simple go to ... I have built some great programs and have tremendous respect for the language. Beware of a misplaced space! 😱
