Thank you so much for checking out LearnLinuxTV’s Bash scripting series! In this video, the series winds down as Jay points you to some other resources you might want to utilize in order to continue your Linux Learning journey.
Backups – the most critical function of computing that virtually everyone ignores until they learn the hard way that they should’ve taken it more seriously. Don’t be that kind of person! You really should start taking backups seriously – so why not check out episode 17 of LearnLinuxTV’s Bash Scripting guide and learn how to back up files using a Bash Script? In fact, this is a fun video that you won’t want to miss.
There’s WAY too much arguing in the Linux community. Things like Systemd and whether it should be adopted, which desktop environment you should use, or which text editor is the best (the answer is clearly vim). But rather than argue over those things, why not learn how to supply arguments to your bash scripts? It’ll definitely be more worthwhile than obsessing over whatever Linux-related argument is currently being fussed about over on Reddit. So in this video, you’ll learn how to set up arguments in Bash scripts as well as some other fun concepts you should know.
In the previous episode, you learned about the “at” command, which enables you to schedule a script to run later. In this video, we’ll take a look at the same thing again – but it’s not redundant. Actually, we’ll learn more about Cron in this video, which is the tried and true method that Linux people use to handle scheduling jobs to run at a specific time in the future.
No matter how long you work in the IT field, waking up in the middle of the night to manually perform some sort of task is something that absolutely no one gets used to. And with good reason, it’s much better to schedule jobs rather than run them manually. In this video, we’ll learn about the “at” command which will help you set up a task to kick off at some point in the future.
