Python and Bash Programming

This course has been held as an online training course since March 2020. Further Information!

This course enables you to kill two birds with one stone. It is a seminar which covers the basic concepts of both the popular Bash shell, also known as the Bourne Again Shell, and the programming language Python. You will learn how to write small shell scripts to master your Linux administration chores and you will acquire the necessary skills to formulate an algorithm in Python. Like most of our other courses, you can book this one for an on-site or an in-house training, e.g. in Switzerland (Zurich), Germany (Hamburg, Frankfurt, Munich, Berlin, Stuttgart, Lake Constance), Canada (Toronto), England (London), Netherlands (Amsterdam), Austria (Vienna) and France (Paris).
