- Scripting is error-prone. Getting your scripts to work can be more about staying with the troubleshooting process than it is about knowing how to write a script. Systems administrators and desktop support technicians need to not only be able to write bash scripts but to stay with those scripting projects until their automations actually work. Success starts with setting foundations by identifying which best practices you want to follow and which products will ease your workflow. You need to know how to ensure that your script will execute and leverage built-in tools to find new commands. You need to become part of a community of experts to help you to learn more and to solve problems as they arise. I'm Sean Collins. With more than two decades of systems administration experience, I've learned some things I cannot wait to share with you. Come join me in my LinkedIn learning course to troubleshoot and debug your bash scripts.
