About the Course

In this 2-hour long project-based course, you will learn how to create Bash scripts that automates long and tedious tasks, evaluate and review some of the most commonly-used linux commands, and understand concepts such as conditional statements, loops, piping, and redirection to create powerful scripts. Note: This course works best for learners who are based in the North America region. We’re currently working on providing the same experience in other regions....

I was expecting some hand-on practice on BASH but it is just like solve a quiz and get a certificate.

Great introductory course to Bash. I wish this was in a mini-series of other bash scripting guided projects. I enjoyed re-learning a few things that I had used previously. However, I do encourage the professor to go over a few of the commands used here before actually incorporating them into the project. Such as, "grep, cut, xargs, find and awk". The man covers much about them but it would be helpful to see them being introduced before the project begins. Thanks

Great course @

But cheating the public community! Why? After you subscription have expired all your past course contents completed and graduated are not accessible and it forced you to upgrade to paid subscription. This is absurd and cheating the general public community!

The course has been very interesting, but I'm not totally satisfied with some aspects I think could be improved:

-> quality of voice recording

-> coursera platform experience

Anycase, my global opinion of this course is positive.

Super love the simplicity of the instructions! Just too right for non-unix user like me! Thanks a lot for the help, will truly serve as a foundation in my next Bash courses!

listed as intermediate, but instructor goes over basic commands with an example, but then introduces advanced commands without examples, but just a short discussion integrated into a wider program.

very basic bash knowledge, including some common used commands. For systematic bash knowledge, this course is not recommended.

Audio quality was not good.

I often had the problem following the lecturer.

Overall interesting introduction.

Test question:

Bash is not a terminal, it is a shell.

The shebang is not mandatory, but it's good to have.

The project content doesn't match the description. I also can't hear the instructor clearly. It's a waste of time!
