Introduction to shell programming

A lot of things in Linux are done on the command line. This talk starts with a very basic knowledge of the command line and describes how to leverage this into a powerful programming system. Transform those snips of commands into powerful self documenting scripts to super charge your productivity.

Andrew Worsley is an embedded software engineer with 30+ years of programming experience. He has worked in a wide variety of areas from kernel drivers and compilers to networking equipment, AI programming languages and image processing systems such as Kodak's Image Magic. This included a variety of low level coding such writing microcode for network processors to porting kernels to new Intel and ARM based hardware. These days he is trying to keep bugs out of very high speed (100Gbit/s) encryption systems that are manufactured in Victoria and sold around the world.

There will also be the usual casual hands-on workshop, Linux installation, configuration and assistance and advice. Bring your laptop if you need help with a particular issue. This will now occur BEFORE the talks from 12:30 to 14:00. The talks will commence at 14:00 (2pm) so there is time for people to have lunch nearby.

The meeting will be held at Infoxchange, 33 Elizabeth St. Richmond 3121.  Late arrivals please call (0421) 775 358 for access to the venue.

LUV would like to acknowledge Infoxchange for the venue.

Linux Users of Victoria is a subcommittee of Linux Australia.
