Examples are the administration of services (start, stop), the automation of activities, and additional actions when installing or uninstalling software packages. Good knowledge of shell scripts is a requirement for any Linux administrator. The default shell in Linux is bash; the programming functions are covered in this course.

Administrators who want to create their own shell scripts for administration purposes.
