Hey guys what is up?? hmm...so were should i start...?? I'm Gautam 27 yrs of age male single from Hyderabad, India. I took up a job on shell, perl and mongodb in an organization like 2 weeks back. Previously i worked for 1 year on Dot Net platform Currently iam pretty much confused on were to start and which direction to follow...as i was instructed by my boss to learn these technologies on my own without any training and assistance from there end I will be put into server automation mostly would be scripting using bash once i complete my learning phase. Been 2 weeks since i started using ubuntu desktop and iam kinda doing close to 5-6 commands a day and exploring on the syntax of bash as of now... So before indulging into some serious shell scripting and talking with ya guys been doin some samples scripts using control structures...just to get used to the syntax... most of the stuff i came across have very basic programs which any newbie can pickup very easily I wanted to know and wondering how the scripts would be in real time environment, wanted to learn to write advanced scripts in coming weeks and progress from there slowly upwards. hmm...so joined this community so that i can interact with u all, share and learn...so looking forward for a great community environment and posts.
