A Lesson in Bash, from Gloria W

  • This location is shown only to members

Gloria W (who runs PyGotham) is giving us a talk on all of the fun and useful things you can do with bash! There will be code to play with and learn from, hand-outs you can take home, plenty of time to ask questions, snacks for brain food (gotta get those neurons firing), and an appropriate amount of nerdy puns... or maybe an inordinately large amount, but we like it that way.

Come join us, and bring your laptop!

    I fixed the seq error, for Mac users. Please do a git pull:

    Syntax is below

    upper_bounds=$[${#params[*]}-1] # list goes form 0 to 4

    # Note that seq does not work on Mac.
    # Note that {..} range must be converted to synatx below if variable is involved.
    for (( i=0; i<=$upper_bounds; i++ )); do echo "$i ${#params[i]}"; done # Notice ';' delimiters on single line.

    Not sure if I can make it. Better if someone on the super huge waitlist takes my spot.

      Hi Ling! We really appreciate all of the efforts to hire more women in tech. However, meetups are not the place to come for recruiting tech talent. If you want to come and learn how to code, that's awesome! If not, that's ok, too. I'd recommend posting on the 37signals and github job boards. I wish you all the best!

    Gloria, what level is this for? Some examples of what you're covering could help clarify

    May 4, 2013

    • Gloria W

      All levels: how to read octal file perms, context aware auto-completion, iteration, find and grep, the list goes on.
