Bash scripting: Do This, Not That.

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In this talk I am going to explain what I have learned about Bash to make your code less error-prone, more efficient, and easily readable. By the conclusion of this session attendees will understand how Bash uses word splitting to identify tokens and why proper (even excessive) quoting is so important. Simple ways to shorten pipelines, the importance of style, and "asking software the right questions" will also be discussed.
