What is the session about?

Learn to write bash scripts for fun and profit! Automate every day tasks! Impress your friends! Bring doom and despair to your enemies!1!! In this course we will learn to use bash to write scripts, and to use parameters and variables in those scripts. These scripts can be used to automate every day tasks such as making remote backups of interesting files and folders (wink wink​ We totally won't be exfiltrating the data in those backups)

Teacher: (will be updated)

(This session will be in english)

What does it require to participate?

The class will be in flipped mode. I expect students to go through the material here: https://github.com/iekanat/ScriptingForKiddies before joining the online call. On the call, I will give them a task in the form of a set of requirements. The students will work on writing a "backup" script for the exercise. Everything they need to successfully complete the task is included in that repository.

Do I need to install something on beforehand?

Have access to a Linux computer either with bash or zsh. Easiest way would be to use the Hauukins instance I will launch for this exercise.
