Understanding and applying the tools at your disposal can mean the difference between tons of manual, error-prone work, or eliminating that work through automation. Unix and Linux provide a rich set of such tools, but unfortunately, many sysadmins don't have the programming background to exploit them.
In this class, we'll cover the programming techniques sysadmins need to do their jobs faster and more effectively. We'll start with the shell, then expand into tools like sed and awk, and finish with everyone's favorite Swiss Army chainsaw, Perl. Along the way, we'll examine a large number of scripts that solve real-world system administration problems.
If you're ready to take advantage of the powerful tools in the Unix toolbox, this class is for you.
This class will be taught by Steven Pritchard and Bill Odom. The price for this three-day class will be $999, with lunch included each day.
